VANCOUVER, BC and NEW YORK – Leading GIS project management startup Matidor.com and global built environment consulting firm Arup today announced they are cocreating products to optimize energy system planning and analysis, helping organizations meet climate action commitments and targets.
The partnership combines Matidor’s map-based project management capabilities with Arup’s digital and sustainability expertise and experience in energy efficiency modeling and planning at all scales. Together, Matidor and Arup will collaborate to enable civil engineers to model multiple urban planning scenarios and calculate and optimize the energy efficiency in real-time, so that the best-performing model can be developed to achieve maximum environmental impact.
“The need for digital innovations in the Civil Engineering industry, especially around smart city planning, is becoming ever more apparent. Municipalities and property developers constantly seek smarter ways to plan and collaborate on clean community development projects. Yet, outdated modelling mechanisms have been hindering the advancement in this area,” said Vincent Lam, co-founder and CEO of Matidor.com. “Partnering with Arup allows Matidor to leverage our intuitive GIS project management platform and Arup’s subject matter expertise to enable a real-time energy modelling system. The result will save thousands of hours for civil engineering organizations when planning and developing environmentally friendly communities.”
“As part of our commitment to furthering sustainable outcomes for the built environment, Arup is pleased to support the development of a new technology to make it easier for both start-ups and established firms to track their climate action progress, as more companies integrate sustainability objectives into their project management systems,” said Rebecca Birmingham, Americas Ventures Lead, Arup.
