IEM is a first-of-its-kind high resolution modelling tool that allows users to project how various environmental factors such as solar, wind, temperature, noise; as well as their interrelationships and combined impact affects an urban setting. Other modellers currently available in the market are only able to assess each environmental factor in isolation. This innovative technology is incorporated as part of the master planning and urban design process for future new towns such as Tengah by HDB.
