We see ourselves at a pivotal point within the construction space. the prevailing methodologies, systems, and hierarchies are integrating with modern technologies and ever-increasing automation parameters. The generic narrative that says ‘we have done it that way—so why change?’ —has been confronted by the concept from digitally native generations, which are unencumbered by historical practices and philosophies. It turns into an exciting scenario for organizations that thrive on dynamic changes and provides a chance to elevate the industry as an inspirational career choice for the simplest global talent pool.
Consider one among the emerging concepts that gain more excellent traction within the industry, Digital Twin. this is often a thought that generates a digital just like the physical infrastructure–there emerges a chance that helps to rework the perception gap within the sector. we will enable us to make a virtuous arena for talent because the construction space gains credibility as a technology-enabled career pathway. This is often great for the industry, but what about the clients, end-users, and therefore the broader society? If we glance at Digital Twin, we are just scratching the surface of what could be possible. This stretches far beyond Building Information Modelling (BIM) and therefore the provided flythrough. We are now familiar with and moves into the territory of a replacement mindset from both contractor and client.
We are evolving at implementing technologies at the pre-construction also as delivery stages of the projects, but post-occupancy is where all that big volumes of knowledge get junked thanks to the collective failure in analyzing the vast opportunity that prevails. This is often where Digital Twin offers a snapshot of the longer term.
If we are able to change our mindset and embrace a technology-enabled perspective, we will create more value. what percentage projects do recognize the digital ecosystem and connectivity of the built asset at the initial stages – developing a strong digital platform that operates effectively with every element within the building? Consider ubiquitous smartphones – you wouldn’t design an App that doesn’t run an iPhone? Routinely we install elements that require ‘workarounds’ to take a seat within a classy Building Management System.
