Building a memorable hotel experience

Smooth flow of people and goods can help build your property’s brand by enhancing its reputation and encouraging positive recommendations. With the help of our expertise you can provide every guest with a memorable experience.

Bringing clarity to mixed-use buildings

Buildings in increasingly dense urban environments often combine transport services, retail and office facilities, and hotels in one space. Our expertise and data-based recommendations bring clarity to the flow of people and goods to create an intuitive experience that meets the needs of all building users.

Holistic thinking for smarter buildings

Using a combination of expert analysis, hard data, and world-class analysis tools, we conduct holistic vertical people flow analysis and planning that supports the design of a new development or helps determine the right modernization approach for an existing building.


Analyzing your people flow

The first step is to carry out a people flow analysis of your building. We eliminate guesswork by gathering real data through sensors and expert observations on site, then use advanced analytics to capture the true traffic profile of your building. Seeing is believing, so we base our approach on strong data points, cross-functional teams, and tailored 3D simulations.


Identifying potential challenges

With a clear picture of the people flow of your building or design scheme, we can more easily identify pain points such as potential bottlenecks and areas where things like navigation and guidance might be challenging. We’ll also analyze the user experience from the perspective of different groups including staff, visitors and VIPs, and people with restricted mobility.


Recommending the optimal solutions

Using a detailed scenario study we’ll analyze several feasible improvement options. During this step we’ll also examine how changes in the building users, equipment, or operations will impact overall experience and performance.


Validating the solutions and creating a roadmap for the future

In the final step we’ll work closely with you to determine how to make the proposed scenario a reality and ensure that it meets the current and future needs of your building and everyone who uses it.
