How EPI Works
Sprout’s EPI tool can be applied at varying phases of design including;
Site Analysis - to assess existing site conditions and outputs,
Design or strategy development - to inform design refinement and options evaluation or
Stakeholder Engagement - to demonstrate to stakeholders performance benefits of good design and masterplanning.
Environmental data is extracted from a plan or drawing using Sprout’s CAD systems which organises data into metrics then displays it in very clear and legible graphic outputs.
The extracted environmental data is organised into the Sprout environmental performance metrics and displayed as easy to read bar graphs. The graphs enable an informed comparison of environmental performance rates across green open space design and masterplan options. Each bar on the graph represents a unique proposition with the orange being the existing (pre-development) site condition.
