About this event
To mark the return of the spotlight area Digital Impact at Futurebuild 2021, we have invited some of the construction industry’s leading digital construction experts to join us in discussing the impact of the Digital Twin on the built environment.
The concept of the Digital Twin dates back to 2002, when Dr Michael Grieves of the University of Michigan, spoke of the formation of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). While the terminology for a PLM may have changed since 2002, the basic idea of capturing the digital information of a built asset has grown exponentially.
This pairing of the virtual and physical world allows the analysis of data and monitoring of processes in the design, build and operational phases of a project, hence we have a Digital Twin of the actual asset.
With a Digital Twin you can predict the future performance, behaviour and maintenance needs of the asset and in this webinar John Adams, Head of Product at Glider, will host a conversation about how Digital Twin technology can enable predictive maintenance and improved diagnostic.
Digital Twins have been promoted as the ideal vehicle for predictive maintenance and in principle, the virtual replicas of an asset can collect data and reveal historical patterns that lead to better diagnostic capability. But how much of this is being realised, what impact has it had on modern methods of construction? As an industry, have we fully embraced our Digital Twin?
In partnership with
Join us in hearing our panellists discuss what you can and cannot expect to accomplish with Digital Twins and gain insight into the UK’s Information Management Framework driving the inception of an ecosystem of connected digital twins; the National Digital Twin.
The panel debate will be followed by a live Q&A session, where you can pose your questions to our experts.
John Adams, Head of Products, Glider
Peter’s role at BIM Academy is to steer the consultancy business and ensure it brings value to its founders and the wider industry. His 35 years technical and commercial experience is key to making sure the Academy thrives as a relevant, well informed and commercially robust business.
John is a strong voice for Glider and leads the gliderbim® product direction. He also delivers talks on behalf of the UK BIM Alliance and uses his platform to be a conscientious disruptor, with a positive and challenging stance to increase BIM adoption and improve information management standards across the industry.
David has worked at the highest levels of design both in the UK and abroad and is passionate about progressive architecture, emerging technology, design and delivery excellence. Before setting up the practice in 2001, he was an associate director of Future Systems and project architect for the Stirling Prize-winning Media Centre at Lord’s Cricket Ground. This project allowed him to develop his interest in the refinement of form through three dimensional problem solving, which he had gained in Santiago Calatrava’s office in the mid-nineties. His specialist knowledge of the design and delivery of complex buildings has evolved into an interest in dimensional analysis and modelling, using the computer as a creative tool to enhance building design and this is fundamental to the practice’s approach today.
As Mott MacDonald’s Chief Technical Officer, Mark is accountable to the Executive Board for technical excellence across the Group. As the Chair of Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) Digital Framework Task Group, Mark is contributing to the leadership of the National Digital Twin Programme.
