The construction job site is changing. Paper drawings, sketches, and design plans are giving way to drones, 3D models, and a new interactive experience called augmented reality. Augmented reality, or AR for short, is one of the most talked about technology trends in construction. Using an advanced camera and sensor technology, AR combines one’s physical surroundings with computer-generated information and presents it in real-time.

Why a Digital Twin Is the Best Way to Start a Building Project

Article | April 28, 2020

A digital twin is much more than just a 3D model of a building. It contains detailed information of all equipment and components, including their physical properties and cost. The model can also reflect the exact state of building elements, showing issues like mechanical wear. Digital twins can also be used as simulation tools, to analyze how a building would behave under different conditions.
