The term Digital Twin, whilst it has only become a popular term in the last couple of years has already earned itself the divisive status that BIM had previously held. So what do we really mean by the term Digital Twin?
Why do we need them?
Who is going to benefit?
And if you want one, how do you get started?
These, and other important questions around the next step in the digitalisation of the whole of the built environment will be addressed by our fantastic line up of speakers for our Summer Online Conference on 20th May 2020.
Mark Enzer, Digital Director, Centre for Digital Built Britain
John Adams, Digital Construction Strategist, Glider Technology
Vicki Reynolds, Head of Digital, i3PT Certification
George Mokhtar, Strategic Director, Digital Advisory, Turner & Townsend

We are pleased to be hosting another joint event with CIBSE, this time focussing on how Building Services contractors and manufacturers are developing their digital processes and content to assist project teams.
BIMstore will be talking about their work with major building services manufacturers, why creating these objects is important for the industry and how they are now being used across the lifecycle of projects. There has even been mention of how they work with another thinkBIM favourite topic – Product Data Templates.
G&H Building Services will be describing how they have approached BIM adoption in their business – a great case study in how they have developed their digitals services in ways that suit their business and the benefits this has brought.
Turner & Townsend will also be explaining why the data in building services models is so important and demonstrating how cost certainly can be derived from this information. Focussing on quality, quantification and estimation the team from T&T will offer a great insight into 5D workflows.
To get involved join us on 9th March 2016
