A challenging project with an unforgiving timeline and budget, we were able to deliver this project with parametric analysis through Grasshopper for Rhino to better understand an plan the logistics of installing 556 piece, 18,000lbs of recyclable high pressure PVC pipes. Without advanced tools and integrated analysis production oversight delivery of this project with traditional methods would have exceeded the budget and not met the timeline.
