Triple Bottom-Line Approach

One of my favorite airports is the one that brings me home: San Francisco International Airport. It’s luminous. It has beautiful interior landscaping, and it’s easy to navigate. The terminal was redeveloped to its current beauty using Autocase, a cloud-based software that provides architects and building developers with triple bottom-line cost-benefit analysis. 

Autocase’s software analyzes development projects to determine the best location and design of a building to reduce costs and environmental impact while increasing health and productivity. Autocase’s service is faster and less expensive than consultants. And it provides more independence to building designers so they can adapt each building to best fit their specific needs. The end result is a triple bottom-line that quantifies financial, social, and environmental savings. Autocase recently completed such an analysis for the Indeed Tower, and we’ve included it below to show you just how impactful it can be.

In the case of San Francisco International Airport, Autocase presented the costs and impacts of two energy and water sourcing scenarios. It also evaluated the energy impact of four different designs. The airport now features a green roof, interior landscaping, and electrochromic glass to lower carbon emissions. It uses 60% less energy than comparable facilities. According to Autocase, these changes will increase passenger comfort, reduce employee absenteeism, and improve employee working conditions. It is also the first airport in the world to earn a “Platinum Certification” — the highest certification available — from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). In order to qualify, a building must fulfill at least 80% of the requirements for contribution to climate change, water saving, protection of biodiversity, use of sustainable materials, human health, and quality of life. In 2020, there were only 3,800 Platinum Certified LEED buildings in the entire world.

Clearly, Autodesk’s software can have a major impact. But Autocase has to improve its monetization strategy to reach its full potential.
