Mission

The world needs better infrastructure. We're here to help.

Transcend’s mission is to transform the way asset owners, technology suppliers and engineering firms assess and design critical infrastructure.

Firms that adopt Transcend software achieve better outcomes, lower costs, increase revenue (bid on more projects, faster, with more detail in less time), and free up engineers to evaluate innovative technologies and sustainable design approaches, transcending the standard and sub-optimal solutions of years past.

Our roots start in the infrastructure industry, where our CEO, Ari Raivetz, had spent decades investing in and building water businesses to help heal our broken planet. But his team of expert wastewater engineers had a problem: an unbelievable amount of detail was required to engineer innovative wastewater treatment infrastructure, which left little time for our engineers to innovate and focus on work they enjoyed.

Rather than copy pasting, Ari and the engineers collaborated with software developers to develop the Transcend Design Generator (TDG). This cloud-based, proprietary software is the only SaaS platform that fully automates the preliminary design of vertical assets including water, wastewater, electrical substations and other critical infrastructure in 8 hours or less.

With a limited set of configured, client-controlled inputs, the intelligent solution validates thousands of data points to ensure global quality and consistency of designs. The complex set of decisions then goes through several iterations before running complete static and dynamic process simulations (if necessary). Once the set of parameters are confirmed, the software optimizes critical decision making to generate a full set of engineering quality documents including SLDs, Process Schematics, P&IDs, GA Diagrams, BIM & 3D Models, Civil BOQ/BOM, and many others.

TDG has now designed over 17,000 critical infrastructure assets and has thousands of active users around the world.

Our Values

Our Values

Transcenders share a common set of values that provide the foundation for how we work & who we work with.
Purposeful Work

Transcenders love what we do because it has real meaning.

Capacity limitations in early project stages are a MAJOR reason we aren’t solving climate change fast enough. Many people talk about having an impact, but we are actually doing it. We ‘Live to Solve’ the most difficult challenges and use our passion to give back to the planet.

Quality Matters

Transcenders never settle.

We are all PROFESSIONALS that are committed to delivering the highest quality work which is constantly raising the bar. Every day we prove that not only does engineering automation not sacrifice quality, but in fact we can achieve better outcomes that set new professional standards for the industry.

Embrace Change

TDG is a game-changing, once-in-a-generation product.

To MAXIMIZE the value from this innovation we must help our clients embrace a true transformation in the way their businesses propose, design, and engineer infrastructure projects.

Thinking Together

To achieve both our company and societal goals.

We must THINK TOGETHER with our customers & their customers to change the current industry dynamics. It is only when we find harmony with all internal and external stakeholders in a collective consciousness that we can achieve our true potential and transcend the current status quo.

Customer Journey

At Transcend, the customer’s journey is the center of our universe.

Smart Flexibility

Flexibility is part of the fabric of every transcender.

We are FLEXIBLE in how, where, and when you can work. Achieving the goal is all that matters. We listen carefully to customer needs and are versatile enough to intelligently and quickly adapt our path whenever it is needed and makes sense in the short and long term.

With TDG I no longer feel like a glorified copy-paster. I now have the freedom to engineer.

Our Brand

Behind The Brand

We chose the name Transcend because the design generator is more than a tool, it’s transformational. Clients can transcend the competition and the status quo into a smarter, more efficient future with increased employee and client satisfaction with the Transcend Design Generator.

The concentric brush strokes you see in our logo are ensos, the Japanese word for circle and a sacred symbol in Zen Buddhism. We chose this symbol because the enso represents the individual who creates it, just as our software represents our clients’ individual knowledge, expertise, and design philosophy. The two circles represent the partnership we have with our clients – two entities working alongside one another in harmony to accomplish a shared mission and create valuable software.
