Arup and GIS project management startup Matidor have partnered to co-create products that optimise energy system planning and analysis.

Matidor and Arup will collaborate to enable civil engineers to model multiple urban planning scenarios and calculate and optimise the energy efficiency in real-time, so that the best-performing model can be developed to achieve maximum environmental impact.

Vincent Lam, co-founder and CEO of Matidor, said: “The need for digital innovations in the Civil Engineering industry, especially around smart city planning, is becoming ever more apparent.

“Municipalities and property developers constantly seek smarter ways to plan and collaborate on clean community development projects.

“Partnering with Arup allows Matidor to leverage our intuitive GIS project management platform and Arup’s subject matter expertise to enable a real-time energy modelling system.”

Rebecca Birmingham, Americas Ventures Lead, Arup, added: “As part of our commitment to furthering sustainable outcomes for the built environment, Arup is pleased to support the development of a new technology to make it easier for both start-ups and established firms to track their climate action progress, as more companies integrate sustainability objectives into their project management systems.”

Backed by Y-Combinator, Matidor is a rapidly growing software company offering a one-stop-shop platform for users who need to see what is happening with their built environment projects on a live map.
