Campus Analytics – data driven optimisation of campus strategy, operations & building design

Buro Happold is among the very first to connect data and analytics with building performance, learning outcomes and student experience. Our real-time analytics, predictive modelling and optimisation capability has the potential to revolutionise how educational spaces are planned, used and monitored.

Powered by our Analytics engine, Campus Analytics is a unique planning tool that enables clients to participate in optimising design and operations of their buildings and campuses. This provides easy to digest insights into the quality of environment along with how and why space is used.

Our campus analysis tool for educational institutions can help deliver better environments for students and staff. Here it is in action, helping a university understand connectivity across their campus.

Over 15 years’ experience in optimising campuses and buildings

Campus Analytics provides a real-time, interactive ‘day in the life’ model. The tool empowers key decision makers by enabling them to rapidly test scenarios and options to see which one delivers the best outcomes – in terms of student experience, learning outcomes, asset performance, costs, health and wellbeing.

Knowing which spaces create the best student experience and environment means that clients can design and operate spaces for living and learning with particular outcomes in mind. For example, which configuration of spaces, timetables and delivers the best space utilisation and environmental performance for the campus? Which design maximises interactions between students and staff, and optimises health, comfort, safety and management? Being able to benchmark educational space design with some of the world’s best-known educational institutions can provide insight into which people-oriented designs are most likely to create the best student experience, operational excellence, retain, and attract research and academic talent.
