Our definition of Digital Twins for built assets
We are the artists of the built environment, who carefully select the materials to be applied. A digital twin is the combination of the canvas with the integrated inherited understanding of our existing built assets and how they interact with the previous and future generations.

Digital Twin - Axiom or Fake News? | Cristina Savian
Cristina Savian, managing director and founder of BE-WISE, joins us for the next instalment of our 2018-19 keynote lecture series Constructs: digital innovation in the built environment. The advancement of digital technologies and the adoption of BIM processes in the built environment has enabled the construction industry to catch up with aerospace and manufacturing - made possible through the creation of digital twins. Digital twins aim to be the single source of truth in a built asset, serving the role as a live digital representation of a physical entity through the asset’s lifecycle, from conception to decommissioning. This lecture will explore the double face of digital twins. On one hand they offer an inspiring new frontier in their role as problem-solvers - enhancing asset performance and reducing risk. But some argue digital twins are yet to deliver tangible, measurable benefits. Cristina will analyse the central questions - are we ready for digital twins? And who stands to benefit? The lecture will begin at 18:30 and will be followed by a networking reception from 19:30. Please note that places for this event are limited and seating will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.

Implementing Digital Twin in the Built Environment - Digital Construction Week
Digital Twins offer a wide range of opportunities, benefits, challenges and risks. At Digital Construction Week in 2019, we spoke to experts on how Digital Twins could be applied in the Built Environment. They highlighted the opportunities that Digital Twins provide and what needs to happen next to implement Digital Twins in the Built Environment. What is Digital Twin Technology? Or what is digital twin in manufacturing? Quite simply, a digital twin is a virtual model of a process, product or service. This pairing of the virtual and physical worlds allows analysis of data and monitoring of systems to head off problems before they even occur, prevent downtime, develop new opportunities and even plan for the future by using simulations.
