MRA uses Graphisoft ArchiCAD, a powerful 3D parametric building design tool. This software enables us to work fluidly between the conceptual model and the building model, while both design intent and detail are captured from an early stage. In this way, parametric building modelling captures the true essence of design - the designer’s intent. The ease of parametric editing then allows a more thorough examination of the design - which results in a better building design overall.

This means that the high quality information we produce can significantly help to reduce costly on-site design alterations and interruptions to the construction programme.

As part of our commitment to sustainable architecture, we have also adopted Graphisoft EcoDesigner which enables us to analyse, at an early stage, the energy efficiency of our design. This provides invaluable feedback on the building’s energy consumption, carbon footprint and monthly energy balance.
