Introducing Cactus! Our in-house carbon modelling tool.
Cactus employs Grasshopper and ShapeDiver to render parametric models in seconds. Not only does it quickly size structural elements for different options, it also provides comprehensive and accurate reporting on embodied carbon.
Designed with an intuitive user interface, the tool can be used by any of our team to present options to clients and design teams, even in real-time. It allows for agile and informed early stage decisions about a building's structural solutions.
Cactus has been developed by our internal computational group; a team involved in improving our company-wide offering and efficiency through the development of custom tools and scripts.
