What to expect during the event
In this presentation Adam will explore the current state of digital twins and immersive mediums within architecture, engineering and construction. Adam will pull anecdotes and examples from his years of BIM management and building digital twins for clients and customers around the world. He will speak to common blockers, benefits, drawbacks, and how to pick the right tool for the job. With technology quickly advancing and many tools available, it can be difficult to understand where to start. In a world with many solutions, it is important to pick the right one and not recreate the wheel if possible. Particular emphasis will be given to several emerging technologies including Building Information Models, 3D scanning, Simulation, IoT and Virtual Reality. Adam will survey some tools and resources that can allow companies to get up and running quickly, and discuss how to determine their suitability for specific initiatives.
