The German company is creating digital twins, mainly for the construction sector. With many years of experience in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and the games industry, the company is creating semantic (object-based) and volumetric 3D models of buildings, infrastructure and technical equipment that are interactive, software-independent and built entirely to the clients’ specifications. They are looking for sustainable cooperation under commercial agency agreements or with subcontractors.
The company creates these digital twins focussing on digitisation processes in the construction industry but also for industries as transport, energy, nuclear, telecoms, maritime, aviation and security.
Their clients are using the digital twins for example for visualisation and stakeholder engagement, impact assessment, scenario planning, simulation, process optimisation, training and gamification.
The team is built of specialists for Building Information Modelling (BIM), geographic information systems (GIS) and games industry, with over a decade of practical experience in technical 3D applications and the “gamification” of the built environment.
The company has developed a low-cost-high-quality process based on a combination of games technology and engineering expertise. With this innovative technology it is meeting the needs of the digitised industry.
The German company is already active on the international market, but with commercial agency agreements, they want to build up long-term partnerships to strengthen their competitiveness and to widen their geographical range to offer their services.
The company is also looking for subcontractors to establish sustainable cooperation.
The core of the technology is an enormous library of digital objects. Launched 15 years ago, it now includes digital representations of objects such as street furniture, building components, railway equipment, technical objects, materials and textures from around the world. This extensive object portfolio enables the semantisation of digital twins.
A self-developed tool: the non-proprietary collection of algorithms for processing input data allows the semi-automated production of 3D Augmented/ Virtual Reality Models.
The experts make use of several data input formats, but as a minimum they only require photographs or videos and reference measurements to create a semantic 3D model with an average accuracy of 10 cm. Additional data, such as laser scans, drawings, condition surveys etc. can be used to speed up the initial production process and increase the overall accuracy of the final model.
After completion, each digital twin can be connected directly to the data management systems of the clients. The deliverable should be a model to an agreed specification and format, i.e. DWG, DGN, DXF, Collada, FBX, SHP, CityGML etc.
The company’s unique selling points are:
• Combining expertise from computer gaming and engineering sciences with experience from over 3700 3D projects.
• The company developed a low-cost-high-quality process that uses minimal data from existing buildings or facilities - normal photos for the standard method, which means independence and significantly reduction of costs.
• High degree of automation in the digital production process, enabled by their library of digital objects (own tool).
The company’s self-developed tool consists of a combination of commercial software, open source code and an own code. Therefore, the company is not claiming any IPR for it, nor they provide a license model for its use.
The company is looking for infrastructure or estate owners and operators (rail, energy, roads, airports, waterways), but also for academia and research institutes in these areas to build up sustainable strategic partnerships under commercial agency agreements or via subcontracting to facilitate their commissioning, planning or operation of building projects and to engage with their relevant stakeholders by using digital twins.
Partners are also sought in the construction industry in the whole construction value chain but also for industries as transport, energy, telecoms, aviation and security. Sales agents and/or subcontractors are sought for the company’s service creating digital twins and for offering training and learning experience by means of virtual reality and gamification.
The partners sought should have understanding in: Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digitisation in construction. The company is looking for partners worldwide.
