In recent years, BIM has emerged as the gold standard for 3-D digital modeling and continues to be the way architects, developers, construction managers, owners and contractors coordinate complex construction projects. But BIM is limited by the input provided to it by all the stakeholders. What if there was a way to build and maintain infrastructure with greater certainty? What if 3D modeling was enhanced with simulation modeling and real-time information response?
BIM remains the starting point for many architects and construction managers, but it has not produced the productivity gains the industry needs. Projects are still going over budget and past scheduled completion dates. The evolution of BIM is the digital twin.
Digital Twins are the next step forward for the construction and property management industry - enabling enhanced simulation modeling, real-time information operational response, and optimized lifecycle management. Learn more about the evolution from BIM to Twin and how Digital Twin Consortium is leading the way with its growing ecosystem of industry partners.
