A digital twin is a comprehensive representation of a material object in the digital world. In the real estate industry, such a twin provides space for all relevant information, such as planning and contract data or information about the technical building equipment. A digital twin can also be used to visualize the actual condition of a property, and objects can also be tested in their virtual environment through numerous simulations (e.g. severe weather, etc.), all before construction begins.
BIM technology can be used to create digital twins that can also be used in homes, offices or shopping centers, as they improve the development and management of real estate and make it even more customer-oriented. However, the data in a digital twin has often not yet been unified, which can lead to information loss due to a lack of overview. To avoid this, CDE developmentis also important.
