15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY
WHAT A RIDE IT HAS BEEN
Since being formed back in 2004, K8T has become a thriving company that has had key roles across many sectors, from data centres, residential apartments and stadium design.
K8T has provided comprehensive computational fluid dynamics for many years with a wealth of knowledge and understanding that allows confidence in design solutions. This high level of analysis and understanding has provided a pivotal role across the last 15 years. This has been highlighted recently, at the Pan American Games in Lima, with our role advising on the design of the Videna Athletics Stadium. Our analysis has been key to providing an exciting and compliant stadium for track and field events.
K8Tram was developed to assist with data centre design and evaluation through tight integration between design and analysis.
K8T provided valuable insight into the way Cabot Circus, a major shopping complex at the heart of the regeneration of Broadmead in Bristol, would influence the local micro climate through CFD wind analysis
K8T Ltd was formed in 2004 with the intention of providing valuable expertise directly to clients in a way that is easily understood and with the aim to reduce the reliance of over engineering simple problems
K8T aided with the development of the museum and drying of the wreckage from HMS Mary Rose.
K8Tmon was developed. This was a major step in real time monitoring technology and software.
In 2015, K8T welcomed the first of many placement students from the University of the West of England. Through engaging in placement programs K8T has helped the development of future generations as well as allowing fresh ideas from young undergraduates to energise the company.
