A free tool for architects and designers, the Concept App for iPhone, originally released in 2013 by Vancouver based structural engineering firm, Fast + Epp, is now available on desktop. More accessible and convenient than ever before, Concept serves as a structural engineer at fingertips, allowing architects to explore the aesthetics of wood, concrete, and steel, and to determine each material’s feasibility early on. The application combines the creativity of architecture with the practicality of engineering.
Originally stemming from the architect’s desire to assess structural systems and materials feasibility before putting pencil to paper, Fast + Epp devised Concept to allow architects to calculate member depths and browse project photos for inspiration.
Since its original release in 2013, the app has become a welcome addition to the architectural community. Created for architects, engineers, and homebuilders, Concept builds on Fast + Epp’s goal to provide practical and holistic design solutions for iconic building projects worldwide.
Established in 1985, Fast + Epp is an internationally recognized structural engineering firm headquartered in Vancouver, BC, with a team that prioritizes creativity and simplicity. Its history spans over three decades, with successfully completed work of all types and scales in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
