One Tool That Does It All
PlanIT Impact is a holistic design tool to help you make decisions that impact energy and water usage, stormwater management, and transportation as early as possible in the design process, guiding the way as you pursue certifications or simply want a better-performing building.
Simple models uploaded to our site are cross-referenced with open source spatial data, quickly providing metrics (i.e. annual energy usage) that enhance the conversation between teams and your client, helping illuminate the financial and performance benefits of environmentally-conscious design strategies.

Where We Get Our Data
PlanIT Impact provides a more informed approach to the design and planning process by integrating Open Data into a geo-located 3D design environment. This ability to access an aggregation of data brings a tremendous amount of relevant, site-specific information from credible sources into the Schematic phase of your design.
A growing number of federal agencies and municipalities are creating portals, called APIs, to their databases that allow software and applications to utilize the vast amounts of structured data collected by each institution.
PlanIT Impact has been developed to link to dozens of these federal and municipal APIs, utilizing data relevant to energy usage, water usage, stormwater management, and transportation.
This means that your 3D model, located at a specified geographic coordinate, will be complemented by analysis using freely available economic and natural resource data.The result is a 3D schematic design process that yields reliable projections of your design’s environmental and economic impacts.
