Timber Bay Design Tool

A web application developed by Fast + Epp allows designers and architects to explore and visualize different options and possibilities with mass timber

The Timber Bay Design Tool was developed in-house by Fast + Epp’s parametric design team. With a user-friendly interface, it allows users to explore mass timber applications providing member sizes, volume outputs, and a 3D visualization of any mass timber grid a user wants to explore. Calculations are performed in a background script to measure the deck, purlins, girders, and columns, and then displayed in a 3D output. The bay data output table displays all the results along with structural depth and material takeoffs.

This tool is a part of Fast + Epp’s Concept Lab which is a collection of web apps that give designers, developers and builders the tools they need to visualize their schemes at the early stages of design.
