Tetra Tech’s High Performance Buildings Group works at the leading edge of 3D modeling, digital engineering, and data technologies to design high performance buildings around the world.
As the art of building design advances and becomes more sophisticated, the challenge to design engineering solutions that combine the beauty of architecture with an owner’s performance goals and requirements becomes more rigorous. Our willingness to invest in research and development and new technologies, along with our well-established expertise in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and digital engineering, enables us to improve our connectivity with clients, architects, and subcontractors. Our BIM capabilities also increase the speed with which we deliver designs—enabling our designers to approach that challenge more creatively, resulting in more sustainable and energy-efficient design solutions for our clients’ projects.
Our skilled practitioners can unlock and develop innovative solutions to solve complex design challenges by using the latest technologies and approaches such as big data, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and machine learning. This leading-edge use of our in-house experts and willingness to introduce custom solutions specific to individual projects and client requirements enables us to develop customized technology solutions that may not exist in off-the-shelf products.
We have proven technology solutions expertise across different facility and asset types, including commercial buildings; stadiums; schools and educational facilities; defense facilities; spaces for worship; retail centers; and road, infrastructure, and transport facilities. Using our proprietary technology, along with third-party solutions such as Autodesk Revit Software and the BIM 360 Design cloud platform, we can provide near real-time access to 3D building models. This allows project teams to simultaneously work in the same model, resulting in improved coordination, innovative design integrations, and reduced time spent on re-work and unnecessary variations.
Tetra Tech’s unique technology solutions enable us to conduct advanced clash-detection and change management activities to verify the engineering systems and related equipment can be installed and maintained properly within the architectural and structural constraints of the structure prior to any scheduled work.
