Autodesk Green Stormwater Infrastructure
The Autodesk® Green Stormwater Infrastructure Extension for InfraWorks® 360 (GSI) combines rapid design and real-time analysis of stormwater management projects with Building Information Modeling. Civil engineers and landscape architects can sketch and model green infrastructure in 3D to meet local performance requirements or sustainability standards. Planners can use GSI to easily determine the best way to implement green infrastructure on a neighborhood or district scale.
Three common methodologies are supported (Direct Determination, TR-55, Rational), as well as three city-specific requirements (DC, Philadelphia, Los Angeles). Users can customize many assumptions to generate the analysis that works for their project.
With GSI, users can now design green infrastructure directly in context of the project site and analyze the hydrologic performance simultaneously. They can choose and customize a variety of techniques including green roofs, bioretention, harvesting, swales, permeable pavement, trees, infiltration, and wetlands. The ability to design for both form and function makes GSI a powerful tool for working efficiently and with other project stakeholders.
GSI is available for free for InfraWorks 360 subscribers.
