Design

PEER+ is the technology unit at PEER International Consultants consisting of experts of engineers, scientists, and computer programmers. We help designers strike the perfect balance between aesthetics, function, and budget. We stand apart in our ability to preserve visions while lowering costs through the use of custom algorithm-aided optimization. Our solutions can be implemented to optimize material quantities and/or fabrication processes at any scale and any stage of design.

Research

We explore the intersection of design, technology, and mathematics in architecture and the arts, with the goal of finding as-yet-discovered ways of creating. Our team’s interdisciplinary background enables us to pursue a wide variety of research projects and collaborations, such as in complex structural systems, fabrication, and robotics.

Innovation

Our team is always thinking about ways to use technology to bring ideas to life. We strongly believe that there are no limits to creativity, only to the tools you have at your disposal. We fill the void in the industry by creating custom tools to solve any problem. Our custom software solutions enable any kind of design vision, from a billion-dollar football stadium to 3D-printed connections that fit in the palm of your hand.

PEER+ provide the following main services:

Algorithm Aided Design

Algorithms allow designers to overcome the limitations of traditional CAD software and 3D modelers, reaching a level of complexity and control which is beyond the human manual ability. Algorithms-Aided Design presents design methods based on the use of Grasshopper (R), a visual algorithm editor tightly integrated with Rhinoceros (R), allowing users to explore accurate freeform shapes.
AAD includes the development of computational techniques to develop and control complex geometries, covering parametric modeling, digital fabrication techniques, form-finding strategies, environmental analysis and structural optimization

Connections Design

No matter how complex and difficult your connection design is, PEER+ helps you making it simple. Even if subject to multi-type of straining action, we make it doable!

3D Printing

PEER+ is affiliated with a Paris-based technology company focusing on large-scale 3D printing solutions for the architecture, engineering, and construction industry. PEER+ delivers a collaborative design for a large-scale prototype that requires manufacturing while offering access to large-scale 3D printing systems.

Interoperability

Interoperability makes your design process moves faster with complex modeling and geometry. We absorb changes, trials, and errors a thousand times faster than conventional design methods.

Complex Geometries

In a world where Architects keep raising the bar for engineers, complex geometries become the new normal for many structural engineers. PEER+ with the technology tools help architects achieve their vision, within dealing with complex shape structure, roofs, and what’s in between.

Curved Roofs

Curved roofs are complex geometries that could be made of different structural material. PEER+ can advise you about the most optimum geometry, material (steel, shell, etc..), curvature points and overall shape to meet the architectural intent at lowest cost.

Wind Tunnel Simulation

PEER+ computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and wind engineers help you make informed decision when dealing with tall buildings and sensitive structures prone to be governed by wind loads. Such tools can significantly optimize buildings design when code procedures over-estimate acting loads.

Member Sizing

In modular systems and repetitive systems, member sizing becomes of high importance to optimize the overall project cost. Out of trillion solutions, we have the one and only one that makes your project the most cost-effective.
