The new SmartSpaceAnalyser app from Buro Happold, providing spatial analysis on a building or urban scale
We live in a world where there is an ‘App’ for everything. Smart Space is no different.
As part of a growing collaboration between Smart Space and Flux.io, the SmartSpaceAnalyser app recently went live in the Flux app store as the first 3rd party app on the Flux platform. The highly intuitive tool can perform spatial analysis on a building or urban scale. It allows you to perform distance mapping, visibility analysis and connectivity analysis in seconds. Using a drag and draw interface on top of Google Maps the user can quickly run these analytics in realtime, and quickly export all the analytics to the most common 3D modelling and BIM environments of Sketch-up, Rhino 3D and Revit, for further analysis and integration with the design workflow. The outputs from the app can help make strategic and tactical decisions, drive designs that are based on evidence not gut feel, and optimise real-time operations.
This tool, in summary, is an innovative technology combined with Smart Space’s experienced strategic guidance to optimise spaces, shape buildings and plan cities for efficiency, comfort and safety.

BuroHappold Smart Space is the home of innovative services, tools and technologies that optimise layouts, capacities, processes and operations of buildings and urban spaces. We have been transforming airports, stations, urban spaces, theatres, museums, educational institutes around the world – supercharging their performance and the experience of people using them. With an in-depth experience international best practices in these sectors, supported by realtime modelling and optioneering tools, our ‘people centred design approach’ goes beyond traditional compliance based design and into the realm of rapid optioneering and optimisation of venues that delivers best economic, environmental and experience based outcomes to our clients.
Our work is powered by a wide range of realtimtime simulation, data visualisation and decision enhancing tools and dashboards to help clients and architects test their designs ‘on the fly’. Our flagship software, SmartMove, brings designs to life, revealing how a space will function in operation and highlighting the successes or opportunities within a design. Our tools combine spatial analysis (SmartSpaceAnalyser), people flow (SmartMove) and complex process modelling (SmartProcessAnalyser) to simulate from building scale to city scale.
