A digital twin is a virtual copy of a physical product, process or system. It is a digital representation of a building, which connects the physical and virtual worlds through the combined use of digital technologies; IoT, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
By leveraging sensor data and other forms of data, digital twins can simulate real-world scenarios, enabling data-driven decision making and analysis. This leads to improved efficiency, optimized performance, and better collaboration among stakeholders. It's important to use digital twins throughout the entire life cycle of a property to make informed decisions and identify areas for improvement. Implementing digital twins can help real estate stakeholders maximize their investments and improve overall property performance.
Simplify project management with our user-friendly and intuitive solution, design a number of different platforms and tools can be used to create a holistic digital twin.
In the design phase, the digital twin can be used for virtual design and construction (VDC) meetings across disciplines. It can help identify potential clashes between architectural and construction models.
During the building construction phase, the digital twin can be used for prefabrication of modules in the factory and for on-site installation by the construction company.
As the building moves into its operational phase, the same data can be used for technical facility management.
For example, to report maintenance issues such as a broken elevator. It can also be used to enhance the functionality of coworking spaces. For example, users can reserve desks and adjust air quality. With such a wide range of applications, there is a need for a number of specialist solutions that are each great at what they do. The holistic twin brings them all together and represents the building in the most complete way possible e.g. for everyone, regardless of experience, to connect data silos and promote inclusive practices. No need for extensive training.

"BuildingCloud helps us a lot with the energy refurbishment of our buildings. The easy access to the building models and documents enables me and my colleagues to better understand the planned construction measures. This makes it easier for us to make decisions and we can easily follow the planning and construction process at any time without having to meet or make phone calls. All parties involved, architects, planners, trades, etc., also work independently in this system and have access to the current models and information, which makes planning the work much easier and saves time."
"Being able to walk around the school virtually gives you a completely different insight than just looking at a drawing. You get a much better sense of the building, of the rooms, and of the environment. [...] With the help of the game, teachers and educators can 'visit' the school with students before they move-in. This creates a great understanding that reassures students before a big change. It also encourages students to 'visit' the school themselves in a fun way and in a medium they are familiar with. The game offers great opportunities!"
"We have used BuildingCloud to simplify and streamline the work with our Ekobad concept development. Since we own and manage swimming and wellness facilities, it is extra important to build sustainably and not save on the wrong things. Using case management and easy access to BIM models, we were able to get a clear picture of how the work was progressing and maintain control of the project at all times. To experience, understand and test different concepts we have used BuildingExperience, which has been an important part of the tender process for Myrsjö simhall in Nacka."
