Digital twins for a more efficient construction industry
The construction industry sector creates 18 million direct jobs and contributes to 9 % of Europe's GDP, driving economic growth. However it also accounts for social, climate and energy challenges. The EU-funded BIMprove project will connect people, technology and processes to move beyond building information modelling (BIM), improving efficiency and outcomes in building and construction planning and operations with digital twin technology. BIMprove will develop a comprehensive end-to-end digital thread that can continuously identify deviations and update the digital twin accordingly. Construction companies can use real-time data to plan the fine-tuned allocation of resources, flow of people and safety of employees.
