As a technical consultancy, we use Virtual Engineering and data integration to create a comprehensive and holistic digital representation of your project, development, product or asset.
Our solutions comply with European and international sustainability and climate targets. They address all economic, ecological and social aspects.
This is how you can contribute in a very tangible way to mitigating the effects of climate change already in this decade.
At the same time, our offer enables you to avoid carbon emissions, conserve resources and still meet the infrastructure demands of a globally growing urban population.
Developing technological measures to mitigate climate change by reductions of embodied and operational carbon emissions.
Establishing integrative digital design and simulation processes to improve understanding and lucidity in planning processes and developments under direct participation of the human target group.
Improving the design and development process through Co-Simulation and integration of software, data and geo-information.
Virtual Engineering integrates design, simulation, testing and analysis for a continuous process of product development and optimisation. From equation-based and procedural modelling to Visual and Predictive Analytics as well as Prediction and Forecasting using methods of Machine Learning.

Our Virtual Engineering solutions can be applied in all planning phases.
Even in the case of the most complex interdisciplinary problems, they offer the opportunity of determining spatially distributed parameters and time-dependent characteristics of your project in a simple and easy-to-understand manner. These provide your investigations and planning a significantly higher information value. Possible reasons for non-optimal performance indicators and increased risks are identified more quickly and easily and are corrected automatically. Such design feedback is achieved through seamless integration of new digital processes with proven engineering methods and software.
Simulations and analyses are auditable and can be made available to your stakeholders and the public in a high-quality visual and immersive User Experience.
Pedestrian Wind Comfort studies using high resolution Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations.
Assessing health and well-being and indoor Air Quality.
Simultaneous consideration of energetic parameters and processes inside and outside buildings.
HVAC system development and optimisation.
Assessment of the microclimate including moist ambient conditions (indoor/outdoor).
In the virtual wind tunnel, in-depth wind field studies are performed on the entire and unscaled building structure. Accurate as well as spatially and temporally dependent pressure coefficients cP are calculated.
Virtual Engineering services for the development of technological measures targeting climate change adaptation by reduced embodied and operational carbon emissions and low-energy design.
Determination of short- and long-term water consumption for demand planning at building, neighbourhood and municipal level. Predictive planning by incorporation of Earth observation data, location-based sensor networks and measuring stations, actual weather patterns and climate projections.
Virtual Engineering services for the development of low-energy products and components, optimal cooling and heating systems as well as for the optimisation of indoor comfort. Special emphasis on circular economy principles.
Optimisation of thermal comfort by high-resolution CFD simulations with particular attention to air humidity. Determination of indices of user perception and discomfort, such as PMV (Predicted Mean Voting) and PPD (Predicted Percentage of Dissatisfied), and others.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) allows highly detailed transient flow field analyses and turbulence investigations on individual objects up to entire city areas.
