1,200,000,000 mᶾ of unneeded reinforced concrete is poured yearly due to inefficient design processes in the construction industry. Adding up to 15% in construction cost.
Additionally, 1.2% of overall Co2 emissions world-wide are caused by this problem.
Because three main topics that Structure engineers encounter
on a daily basis:
No AI-Based optimization – Structural engineers use standard design tools without any optimization algorithms.
Lack of automation – All the design iterations are done manually without any type of automation which could be implemented.
Impossible design delivery schedule – Structural engineers are burdened with various projects and are required to “juggle” impossible time frames on each project.
Structural engineers lack the time and attention to thoroughly inspect every part of the project thus resulting to work with heuristics that result in access concrete usage.
