The Rapid Engineering Model (REM) is a radical and disruptive new digital approach to automated design for Highways England, developed by Bryden Wood Technology Ltd with the Smart Motorways Programme (SMP).
REM is a digital workflow, rather than a single piece of software, that is digitally driven and collaboratively enabled and means that SMP schemes can be designed automatically much faster than by traditional means.
