    Building requirements are getting more complex... But buildings don't have to be more complex to design.  

    Last year it was energy efficiency, this year it’s embodied and whole life carbon.

    You are expected to achieve more in your buildings and projects, with a seemingly endless number of objectives, which can cost you unnecessary time and money. 

    We help building stakeholders tackle the carbon problem from the earliest conceptual design stages 

    Preoptima integrates real-time whole life carbon assessments (WLCAs) and seamless carbon optioneering into conceptual building design, allowing you to make critical carbon-informed decisions earlier, faster, and smarter.

    Save Time

    Reduce your assessment time from weeks to minutes with our real-time insights, allowing you to use carbon to inform your every design decision. 

    Save Money

    Forget costly assessments and software subscriptions; our cost-effective solution allows you to perform infinite iterative assessments on your design options. 

    Save Carbon

    We empower carbon novices and carbon experts alike to rapidly perform whole life carbon assessments of conceptual designs and avoid significant carbon emissions.
