    EXPERT BRIEFING AUSTRALIA - They’re just fancy BIM models, aren’t they? Evolving your existing digital design solutions to incorporate connected customers and the twin framework

    Asset owners are realising that a coordinated approach is needed to deliver the required change in asset performance and efficiency. They want access to asset data held by their AEC partners. We consider the practical issues involved to make this happen and what kinds of customers are supportive of twinning frameworks. This session will bring you up to speed on digital twin strategy.

    Creating a uniquely crafted, robust Digital Twin that drives collaboration and unlocks vital insights across the asset lifecycle

    By Rob Kennedy Senior Product Line Manager – Digital Twin, Wood

    We have honed our expertise building digital twins in the energy sector, where highly complex assets, soaring capital expenditure and lengthy operating phases demand a value-driven, full asset lifecycle approach. In this presentation we will share our approach and how we translated this know-how into the built environment, by focusing on ‘right-to-left thinking’ to reflect operational requirements into project delivery – building the operating digital twin alongside the physical asset

  • 11:45 - 12:30

    Panel: Spatial digital twins – Spatial digital twins – Forging digital partnerships to support sustainable cities and communities

    Spatial digital twin proof-of-concepts are being rolled out in APAC cities. The developers imagine a series of connected urban digital twins sharing data to boost infrastructure performance on issues including climate change. Our panel gives us an insight on how the system will work and will speculate on the impact of 5G.

    Bringing project data together from its many sources, formats and phases to create a data-rich digital hub that tracks BIM asset data from design through operations

    By Pierpaolo Franco VP - International Markets Development, Glodon - China

    From design through construction, the project delivery lifecycle of buildings, facilities, bridges, and other physical structures creates an extraordinary amount of data. The data is often disorganized and left unused after handover to owners, developers and operators when the project is completed. And building owners want digital data at handover to get the most out of their investment, given nearly 80 percent of an asset’s lifetime value is realised in operations. In this session you’ll learn:  

    • How you can deliver a holistic and usable view of design and construction data as a digital twin for operations 
    • Why a single source of truth for operations will help reduce the total cost of ownership of projects, and help owners realise the value of BIM long after handover 
  • NETWORKING ROUNDTABLE PANELS

  • CONNECTED ASSET PROGRAMS

  • 16:40 - 17:10

    Key lessons from the National Digital Twin Programme for the United Kingdom
