Digital Twins and Smart Buildings: a Practical Demonstration

Time: 11:40 am - 12:00 pm

Date: 4.10.22

The NHS and healthcare providers can reap huge benefits from Digital Twins and Smart Buildings in their drive for net zero carbon emissions.

Using a healthcare project case study, Jason Whittall, Director, and Shelby Green, Associate, from ONE Creative environments (ONE), will provide a practical demonstration. This will show how ONE’s innovative approach has combined Building Information Models (BIM) with the Internet of Things (IoT) to create easy-to-use and visually intelligent tools that drive insight into a facility’s operation and performance.

The session will look at and explain:
• What is a digital twin?
• What makes a building smart?
• Why digitising your assets can unlock access to greater insights, data and analytics and support your journey to Net-Zero carbon emissions.

Through the practical demonstration of a healthcare project case study, the demonstrator will also help you to understand how Digital Twins can further benefit: the NHS, operators, owners, patients and wider society, providing additional opportunities for efficiencies and savings, while reducing risk and enhancing wellness.

The presentation will illustrate the importance and impact of utilising real-time data streams to support the efficient and safe operation of healthcare facilities and the ability to make meaningful interventions. Examples include:

• Critical asset performance monitoring
• Understanding building occupation (rooms, desks, beds)
• Monitoring indoor air quality
• Managing risks to safeguard occupants and property
• Energy management.

Integrated data and visual intelligence are really important aspects of managing the modern built environment efficiently, especially with increased demand for public services, pressure on budgets, the drive for net-zero carbon and data for public good. You cannot manage what you cannot measure!
