Game changer

Like the sports and leisure market capitalising on digital technology to enhance experiences for fans, Ramboll is using digital technology to transform design, engineering and construction today. With the delivery of sport, leisure and entertainment projects often taking many years from conception to delivery, time compression presents a key benefit. The early stages of a project in particular can be constrained by lengthy design periods to develop a concept with robust cost and programme data that shareholders can buy into. To overcome this we use our own bespoke digital design tools to collaborate with the architect to rapidly generate building options, whilst simultaneously undertaking early engineering analysis to evolve them. We're able to run multiple iterations, collecting the data and presenting the optimum solution based on any combination of key criteria. Clients join us on the design journey and explore multiple options in real time. This enables informed value decisions on where to invest and where to save, with demonstration of the robustness of the proposal in concept, price and programme.

Maximising value and consistent delivery

One of our particular strengths is the contribution we make at concept design stage. Through early stage optioneering we influence the design of the venue and establish its engineering logic to exploit the site's potential and meet energy and emission targets. We couple this with a concise design philosophy to prevent dilution or erosion of the design essence and fundamentals as the project team naturally expands to include contractors and subcontractors. We take pride in realising the concept through to completion and ensure even the small details are right, with a focus on delivering consistent quality.
