BRK Ambiental

A large Brazilian private water utility adopts generative design to transform project evaluation



BRK Ambiental faced high costs and long timelines during wastewater project evaluations, which made adaptable master planning, new build, and upgrade strategies in an evolving regulatory landscape a major challenge. Manual design processes impeded their ability to effectively evaluate new technologies like energy-efficient blowers and advanced processes like MBBR and MABR.

Leveraging TDG

Leveraging TDG

BRK Ambiental partnered with Transcend to transform their wastewater project evaluation process. By using Transcend Design Generator’s (TDG) civil, mechanical, and process engineering outputs, BRK evaluated 8-10 more alternatives per facility to inform investment priorities. The partnership reduced design costs, improved facility operations, and ensured adaptability to changing conditions like population growth, stringent regulations, and rising energy costs.


Key Wins

  • Reduced conceptual wastewater design cost by up to 80% and cut time from 2 months to 1 week
  • 8-10 more options per facility to inform investment prioritization
  • Accelerated treatment technology evaluation and integration
Key Wins

“Partnering with Transcend has transformed our project evaluation and design processes. Their generative design platform has not only enabled us to cut costs by up to 80% in preliminary design but also empowered us to make more strategic decisions and embrace new treatment technologies.”
