Define the scope of the digital twin
Determine what aspect of the real estate property or portfolio you want to create a digital twin for. This could include physical assets such as buildings, infrastructure, or landscaping, as well as non-physical assets such as tenant leases, maintenance schedules, and financial data. Consider the following while identifying the scope.
Gather all relevant data related to the aspect of the real estate property or portfolio you are creating a digital twin for. This may include building plans, blueprints, floor plans, as-built drawings, 3D scans, and other data sources.
Create the digital twin
Use the collected data to create a virtual representation of the real estate property or portfolio. This may involve using software tools to create a 3D model or other visual representation of the physical assets, as well as integrating non-physical data such as tenant leases, maintenance schedules, and financial data.
Test and validate the digital twin
Use the digital twin to simulate different scenarios and test its accuracy and reliability. This may involve comparing the digital twin to physical measurements or other data sources to ensure that it accurately represents the real estate property or portfolio.
Implement the digital twin
Once the digital twin has been validated, it can be used in various ways, such as for asset management, facility management, energy management, or to optimize processes and improve decision-making.
Update and maintain the digital twin
Regularly update and maintain the digital twin by collecting new data and incorporating it into the digital twin. This will help to ensure that the digital twin remains accurate and relevant over time.
