HDR’s proprietary Data Wrangler tool lets design teams quickly determine the most economical and environmentally sound design solutions for clients’ facility updates. The tool’s welcoming graphic interface seamlessly integrates with 3D spatial analysis models and custom relational database servers, enabling clients to envision how a variable will impact the functionality and look of a space. 

From helping a biotech firm accommodate growth without building new to equipping a life science campus to support multiple lab tenants and adapt for the future, examples of the Data Wrangler's uses and benefits are outlined in Tradeline's article, "Harnessing Data to Improve Designs and Enhance Collaboration."  

“Data Wrangler is so versatile that it’s only limited by our imaginations. We’ve used it on larger capital projects, master plans, and with developers that are looking at a piece of land to develop. We can quickly show them options and begin to talk about how much square footage they can build in certain phases over time.” — Dominick Roveto
