No matter what you call it - Autocase offers software and triple bottom line support for Green Infrastructure (GI), Low Impact Development (LID), Best Management Practice (BMP) stormwater management practices that benefit the community, the site owner and the environment.
Resilient design still requires a strong business case. Green infrastructure has been proven as a complement or replacement for grey infrastructure at the watershed, city-wide, and site level. Autocase for Sites compares the benefits and costs to all stormwater project stakeholders.
Rely on regional defaults or override them with inputs of your choosing
Repeatedly run and refine the business case from early planning through detailed design
See results in risk-adjusted dollars, and account for uncertainty using the software’s Monte Carlo simulation of low/expected/high ranges
Model the impacts for 25+ stormwater design options, including bioretention, swales, and permeable pavement
Compare and collaborate on your projects with others
Build resilient stormwater management into your designs
Our team of professional graduate-level economists have extensive experience with all kinds of stormwater management projects. From feature-by-feature analysis for small urban sites to prioritizing thousands of alternatives city-wide. We are ready to offer a helping hand when you need it.
Our economists can make the business case for new building technologies
We provide economic support for project stakeholder meetings
We’ve already data collected the data for your city, automated the business case, and worked on similar projects
A complex project can be both costly and time consuming. Why not have our experienced economists take some of that burden off of you.
Allow us to make the case for the benefits to the owner, occupants, community, and environmental
Tap into over $100 billion of expertise. Our economists have conducted economic analyses on architecture projects across a wide range of sectors
GI/LID has many benefits. A project may be undertaken to reduce flooding or improve water quality while reducing carbon emissions and cleaning the air. Property owners may benefit from a property value increase and the project may reduce deaths by mitigating the urban heat island effect. Green infrastructure and BMP’s can reduce the cost spent on traditional stormwater retention and detention. Valuing the net benefits in a common metric – dollars – and organizing all costs and benefits into a triple bottom line bids allows you to understand different stakeholder perspectives. Autocase allows you to easily compare different design options against each other by assessing the financial, community and environmental impacts in a common metric.
Our annual software licenses come with a range of training and economist support from minimal to extensive as needed. Our experts can support you leveraging our software, as well as develop custom analyses and bespoke analytics for all market sectors.
Civil Engineers working on high performing building projects or pursuing LEED certification need to make the business case for their proposals. Autocase for Buildings compares the benefits and costs to the environment, occupants, and owner your building designs.
