Can you read this at the back? Is your screen big enough?

Social distancing guidelines mean students will be spread throughout your spaces making it more critical than ever for students to read and fully engage with teaching materials from everywhere in a room.

TUDesc uses proven acuity factors to deliver excellent learning outcomes to the entire room. Based upon years of empirical research at TU Delft and the AVIXA DISCAS standard, TUDesc gives you the tools to design the most suitable image size and position in every room type and configuration.

Social distancing means reduced room capacities - but by how much?

A key consideration for universities emerging from lockdown is how to change their layout and infrastructure to comply with social distancing guidelines.

With the TUDesc Optimizer you can:

  • Calculate optimal classroom layouts to deliver maximum seating capacity within social distancing rules - with and without tables.

  • Create and print dimensioned floor plans showing positions for tables, chairs, doors, including pathways with directional arrows.

  • Use the Traffic function to direct pedestrian flow and to label the doors 

  • Instantly try out and view changes to room layout during new-build projects and in response to new social distancing guidelines.

A complete cloud-based solution

Plan every aspect of space configuration, including furniture and all visual aids, with clear sightlines. Avoid many of the common pitfalls that can arise resulting from liaison with architects, designers and other stakeholders. With TUDesc you can get it right the first time, and communicate effectively with all stakeholders.
