computational design+engineering

We are…

in a market that is 
innovating and digitalisingthough most engineers still use inefficient and outdated calculation programs.

We see…

that regulations are more and more demanding, increasing the complexity of buildings and the reliance on good and clear technical advisers.

We develop…

relevant calculation tools with the expertise of engineers, the IT skills of software developers, and the visual creativity of artists.

Why

0 %

Of the total yearly building revenue (NL) goes to failure costs, which is equal to six billion euros. 

Most of these costs merely come from rework in design/calculations or miscommunication during the design phase. In the past decades, the roles of architects, engineers and project developers have specialised more to compensate for the increasing complexity within projects. Unfortunately, this also resulted in an increasing gap between all roles. 

In our opinion, the computer can be used as source to fill this gap. Not by better communication but by integration within the product. 

How

“OMRT reflects their own ideas neatly to the market’s demands… but also vice versa”

We operate both as engineering consultants as software developer.

We carefully listen to clients to assess whether certain tools would accelerate them, enable them to serve their own clients better, or that would simply would make their lives easier.  

Our way of working entails a creative method of bringing ideas to algorithms and a structured method of bringing market value into our services.

What

We create algorithms that comprise of a diverse set of engineering disciplines. When coupled to 3D-geometry, our algorithms calculate multidisciplinary, highly flexible (parametric), and visually.

We use our expertise and skills to increase quality in the built environment, solve highly complex problems in designs, and bring in a wonderful experience during design processes.

Who

Architects & designers: we provide deep technical insights into design problems when certain technical specialised parameters need to be balanced out with each other. Convenient for situations where human brains would collapse.
Real estate developers, -owners, & -investors: we provide technical guidance, understandable outcomes, and easy visuals about energy performance, comfort, and sustainability within a very early and conceptual stage.
