How TDG Works

TDG creates unique, optimized designs for your critical infrastructure project by automatically combining decisions and calculations from multiple engineering disciplines (process, mechanical, electrical, & civil).

1

Design generator input and validation

TDG leverages proprietary databases and validation algorithms to check that inputs are valid and a design can be properly generated.

2

Cloud processing and engineering expertise

TDG incorporates hundreds of thousands of decision algorithms developed by experienced engineers, and combines them with both steady-state and dynamic simulations to optimize and validate designs.

3

Creating quality documentation

TDG combs through global databases to select and size each piece of equipment for the facility.

4

5+ Design options for the client

TDG constructs a 3D Building Information Model (BIM) which can be used as a basis for costing projects, in addition to carrying through to detailed design.
