Performance-based verification in special buildings
Special buildings have special characteristics with regard to their type, size or height or are intended for a special use. Examples are airports, stations, high-rises, museums and many more. In many cases, this use involves a large number of people. In this case, it quickly becomes confusing and dangerous in the event of an emergency. Simulations help to keep the overview and to be prepared for or even to avoid critical points.

Safety through simulation
Evacuation analyses according to DIN 18009-2
We perform our simulations in accordance with the applicable DIN 18009-2. Our expert opinions are prepared according to the generally accepted state of the art and are comprehensible and testable for authorities. Since DIN 18009-2 is not assigned to a building type, simulations can be applied to any special building to evaluate congestion and evacuation times.
Understanding spatial-temporal relationships
Shops, schools or meeting places - these buildings are usually visited and used by a large number of people. It is therefore difficult to maintain an overview when drawing up an evacuation concept. Our simulations help you to visualize these spatial-temporal relationships and to identify problem areas. This makes it possible to create a holistic concept that not only focuses on the safety of the user, but also illustrates it and makes it comprehensible.
Simulations help where the standard ends
For some buildings - despite their unusual size or type of use - the general building code applies. Special buildings such as airports fall into this category. Here, it is questionable whether application of the general building code is still expedient or whether other measures should be taken. With the help of simulations, you can check the usefulness of planned escape and rescue routes and, if necessary, draw up new and safer concepts.

„In our house several doors lead from long stairs directly into the open. The simulation has shown that we must change the direction of the guided groups for a fast evacuation. The groups can not cross each other on the stairways.“
