Vancouver-based Matidor, Arup sign partnership agreement

GIS project management startup Matidor and global sustainable development consulting firm Arup have announced that they are co-creating products designed to optimize energy system planning and analysis that will help organizations meet climate action commitments and targets.

According to a release, the partnership combines Vancouver-based Matidor’s map-based project management capabilities with Arup’s digital and sustainability expertise and experience in energy efficiency modelling and planning.

“The need for digital innovations in the civil engineering industry, especially around smart city planning, is becoming ever more apparent,” said Vincent Lam, co-founder and CEO of Matidor.

“Municipalities and property developers constantly seek smarter ways to plan and collaborate on clean community development projects. Yet, outdated modelling mechanisms have been hindering the advancement in this area.”

Partnering with Arup, he added, will allow the firm to leverage its GIS project management platform and “Arup’s subject matter expertise to enable a real-time energy modelling system. The result will save thousands of hours for civil engineering organizations when planning and developing environmentally friendly communities.”
