GIS Integration

The construction site and its surrounding infrastructure have a major impact on the shape of a building. Kreo Design extracts up-to-date information about your chosen site area to make sure your model fits the site’s location, size and shape. Kreo calculates a variety of critical parameters, e.g. wind and snow loads, external temperature, building orientation.

Massing for office buildings

Kreo Design uses sophisticated algorithms to transform primitive shapes on a map into an optimal building shape.

Massing for residential buildings

With its machine learning algorithms, Kreo Design analyses primitive shapes and returns a rating coefficient for a combination of shapes. Based on this prediction (finding the same forms from our dataset and your preferences), Kreo automatically generates massing.

Using machine learning algorithms trained on a vast proprietary dataset, Kreo Design

Generates a floor plan for residential buildings:

  • kreo architectural design features 2-1-1

    Automated assessment of a building shape

  • kreo architectural design features 2-1-2

    Intelligent massing

Aligns a floor plan with the structural frame:

  • kreo architectural design features 2-1-3

    Optimises placing of structural elements

  • kreo architectural design features 2-1-4

    Works with steel and reinforced concrete frame elements

Architectural model

Kreo Design generates an architectural model of a building based on a construction model. Kreo's machine learning algorithms understand the difference between the ground floor and the other floors. The architectural model automatically adjusts according to your chosen wall and frame types. Kreo Design gives a realistic model of a building with all the facilities included (e.g. elevators, stairways, balconies and entrance halls).

Pre-assembled architectural components

Kreo Design generates standard compound layers to let you experiment with different external and internal walls, floors, etc. Each time you change a compound layer, Kreo recalculates, taking into account clash detection.

Reinforced concrete frame design and engineering

Kreo Design automatically generates reinforced concrete frames. By using intelligent algorithms, Kreo implements the optimal fit for a building frame. With automatically generated reinforced concrete frames, Kreo serves two types of buildings:

Offices

For open plan offices, Kreo automatically works out:

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-1

    Placement of the core

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-2

    Placement of the structural columns

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-3

    Boundary points

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-4

    Divisions between open plan and other areas

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-5

    Window placement based on insolation

Residentials

For residentials, Kreo automates floor plan generation including optimised:

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-6

    Lift shaft placement

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-7

    Window placement

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-8

    Placement of structural columns and walls

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-9

    Door placement

  • kreo structural enginnering features 3-1-10

    Centres of gravity throughout structure

Steel frame structural design and engineering

Kreo Design automatically generates a steel frame for offices, taking into account construction best practices and British Standards Institution (BSI) recommendations. Kreo does this both for buildings without a preset layout and for standard floor layouts.

The frame scheme includes elements such as columns, tie beams and vertical bracing.

Standardisation of reinforced concrete structures

Kreo Design standardises the various sizes and reinforcement of a model's frame. Kreo optimises the building and assembling processes of reinforced concrete frame elements.

Standardisation of steel structures

Kreo Design automatically standardises steel frame elements, optimising for the typical sizes used and overall steel expenditure.
