Digital Twin Cities: Framework and Global Practices

April 20, 2022

Digital twin whitepaper
The continued growth and success of cities is one of the great triumphs of modern civilization. Cities are home to the majority of the world’s population and generate more than 80% of GDP. Rapid urbanization has also brought about new challenges as cities have struggled with congestion, pollution, increased carbon emissions, inequity and exposure to natural disasters such as floods and storms. The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have further intensified these issues.

The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the goal of “building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities”. Whereas these goals may be universally accepted, the path to get there is not as clear. Innovation and empowerment of digital technology are critical to transforming our cities. Policy support and institutional change are also essential.

Build-to-Rent: Helping the UK Build Back Better

whitePaper | June 19, 2022

The private rental market is playing an increasingly vital role in meeting the nation’s housing needs. Over four million households currently rent their homes, which is doublethe two million who rented at the turn of the century.1 In London alone, it is predicted that by 2025 just under 40% of households in the capital will be renting.2 The Montague Report, which was published by the Government in 2012, considered how to encourage investment into the private rented sector, and recognised the opportunity for the rental market to accelerate the delivery of homes, whilst setting the standards for accommodation, and seeking to attract institutional investment into the market.

Optimising EPC Contracts in COVID-19 Crisis

whitePaper | June 10, 2022

The coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), the prolonged quarantine responsesand the enormous economic uncertainty are affecting the normal development of EPC contracts. EPC stands for Engineering, Procurement and Construction and is a prominent form of a contracting agreement in the construction industry. They are not only carried out in the construction sector, but also in other industries such as power generation, oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical, water treatment, mining, among other sectors. The EPC model is used where an owner or employer wishes to engage a contractor to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction of a project. Normally the EPC Contractor has to execute and deliver the project within an agreed time and budget, commonly known as a Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) Contract.

Advanced construction enterprise platform

whitePaper | September 11, 2022

Construction projects often feel like different worlds governed by different rules, flows, regulations, and procedures – but with a single, common goal. The goal is clear but getting there proves much more difficult than it should be. That’s why we decided to sync and empower them to move forward at the same pace right from the start. Constream is a suite of connected modules, where each one is focused on recreating a specific construction management process and serving solutions to day-to-day problems. Our ecosystem is designed with blockchain technology at its core in order to exploit the full potential of decentralization and fragmentation of the construction industry. Why revolutionize something that only needs to evolve?
