Design Buildings and Facilities

Develop and design buildings or facilities of any size or complexity using comprehensive architectural tools, plus a space planning catalog for ticket kiosks, gate turnstiles, passenger information displays, etc.

Design Building Structures

Model steel, concrete, or timber structures from walls, foundations, columns, etc., and produce plans, framing layouts, sections, and elevations. Integrate with detailing applications including Bentley’s ProStructures.

Design MEP Systems

Design complex mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems, including lighting, power, fire detection, fully parametric air-handling, piping, and plumbing systems.

Generate Building Documentation and Reports

Link specifications, engineering calculations, and equipment documentation to your intelligent building model, and produce high-quality, reliable, and up-to-date drawings that accurately represent your design.

Visualize Building Designs

Generate 3D images of models, animations with life-like detail, and high-end photo-realistic renderings, which can aid in the further refinement of potential designs.

Analyze Building System Performance

Inform early design decisions by simulating and evaluating real-world building system performances including conceptual energy analysis to explore peak loads, annual energy calculations, energy consumptions, carbon emissions, and fuel costs.


Johnson Pilton Walker

“As architects, we spend a disproportionate amount of time and resources trying to represent our solutions rather than designing them. Computational design [using GenerativeComponents in OpenBuildings Designer] has allowed our team to focus on resolving problems and finding better design solutions.”

“Bentley technology has the capabilities and tools to make effective and efficient modular workflows so we can optimize project costs and improve efficiency of the design process.”
