Pedestrian Modeling for Optimized Performance

Some problems can’t be fixed post-construction. Avoid costly mistakes and optimize your building’s performance with pedestrian modeling that brings every traffic element to life in a real-world simulation. Manage crowd flow through turnstiles, security checkpoints and elevator, escalator and stair use, and take advantage of point-of-sale opportunities for increased satisfaction with building vendors and tenants.

Lerch Bates is the only pedestrian circulation consultant with fully integrated vertical transportation that can simulate foot traffic flow beginning with points of entry and ending with their final destination.

Everything that humans create is designed to interact with, or be monitored by, other humans. This means that our individual perception of an experience is the most influential factor in decision making. If an experience is negative, we will tend to remember it more vividly. The pedestrian experience does not currently carry enough weight in modern architectural designs, and we intend to change that.
