End-to-end approach - from consulting to solution design and implementation

Digitalization offers open vast new opportunities for buildings, campuses and cities, such as lifting operational efficiency potentials, increasing peoples’ health and well-being, and accelerating decarbonization. In this respect, digital twins act as a bridge between the real and digital worlds.

Smart buildings, campuses and cities are feeding information to a virtual environment, where information can be bundled and presented in a holistic way. This enables fast and easy access to information and creates opportunities, as well as a strong competitive advantage.

A digital twin is enabled by the right digital strategy, IoT devices, various types of system integrations, cloud computing, and analytical models. Using the digital twin requires establishing the digital core, which ultimately integrates data into a common data layer by organizing data from multiple sources and providing a data model.

Start your digital twin journey from wherever you are:

During the discovery phase, our experts help you to define your vision. Together, we create a clear concept to establish your business potential.

Define the target outcome

For each use case, we will evaluate the potential savings, such as reduced maintenance costs or increased efficiency, and outline possible new revenue streams.
