Cities are rapidly developing their own set of climate-related risk standards to keep pace with changing policy and sustainability guidance. To meet these requirements and win more bids, architects and engineers need to consider these new standards at the early design stages. We hear from two design firms on how leveraging engineering simulation in the cloud keeps them competitive and assists them to show compliance. Learn from:
