To assure that everyone seeks shelter in case of an emergency, it’s necessary to focus on escape and emergency routes as well as on preventive fire protection measures as early as in the planning phase.
Planning escape and emergency routes is particularly important, because these routes ensure the visitors’ security if an emergency occurs.
For this purpose, descriptive norms and regulations already exist. However, these requirements can't always be met at new buildings or reconstructions. This is exactly where we know the ropes: by using engineering-based methods we can generate objective and neutral reports, which can proof your safety goals.
The pedestrian flow simulation not only provides you with results, but also depicts how an evacuation evolves in time step by step, where bottlenecks occur, and how many people can reach the safe area in which time.
In this way you get a significant and comprehensible analysis of your project and can enclose it to your fire protection plan as a compensative measure.

BIM enables you to efficiently use engineering-based methods
The construction or reconstruction of buildings and infrastructure is always a big challenge for planners, constructors, and operators. A lot of times correction have to be made, because important details haven't been taken into consideration. The consequence is a rise in costs. Wouldn't it be better to include the people's motions inside the building right from the start of the planning phase?
Simulate how crowds move in buildings with your BIM model.
Crowd simulation enables you to check in advance both the evacuation ways in case of an emergency as well as the processes of normal operation. Be on top of things and minimize your risk as early as in the planning phase.
