Making the Case for Digital Twins

The digital transformation rests in the implementation of cutting-edge technology. In the architecture, building, and engineering industries, digital twins are the representation of innovation and will to make the most out of the technology available.

We live in the information age. More than ever, the amount of data we handle in our daily operations is immense and only continues to grow. Think about it, while working “analogically” there’s so much information scattered all over different platforms that often lead to confusion and, consequently, to rescheduling and reworking.

So, what if all the information needed for the construction process could be stored in a single place? That’s what digital twins are all about, and they have a positive impact on the optimization of productivity and quality.

Keeping yourself at the forefront of technology

We operate in many markets at Voyansi, with clients in LATAM, North America, Australia, the middle east, and now the EU. This gives our team an opportunity to compare and contrast the maturity of BIM across the globe. Our observation, in many countries, even our home of Argentina, BIM remains an enigma. That is not terribly surprising. After all, the digital camera was invented in 1975, but only in the last decade or so has the technology become prevalent. If you are one of the key stakeholders, or even a decision-maker leading your companies digital strategy, you understand this better than most. If you are ready to get started implementing BIM, you are on the precipice of becoming a pioneer in your business.

Hololens for harsh environments

Let 's start with a quick exercise: think about a workplace that represents multiple challenges. Darkness, a small space, a dangerous/irregular terrain or even a lack of communication with the outside world. All of these places are often the main obstacles we have to face at the time of working on specific projects.

Now let 's create a solution. Of course, the best alternative would be to work in that space minimizing the risks and optimizing the use of resources. This way, the project could be carried on while drastically reducing the risks both for the employees and the equipment. How can you achieve this? Hololens.

Moving from Projects to Products

According to McKinsey, $265 billion in annual profits await companies that can disrupt the AEC space. Unsurprisingly, they note Industrialized Construction as one of the leading disruptors. This begs the question: What is industrialized construction, and how can we as builders, designers, or asset owners leverage this approach to become more competitive?

McKinsey’s Next Normal

The latest McKinsey report is a great examination of how the current global events are accelerating change within the construction industry and its broader ecosystem. Titled ‘The Next Normal in Construction,’ the report describes a fragmented, risk averse industry that has typically under performed in terms of productivity growth, digitalization and profit, compared to other industries. It goes on to say that, in conjunction with the Covid-19 pandemic, the combination provides opportunities for already existing disruption in the industry to be bolder, strategic and begin to define what the resulting normal is going to look like.
