Episode 2: Smart Buildings Edition

For the second episode in the digital twin trilogy series, we’ll be continuing the pattern of infrastructure by diving into the topic of smart buildings and how bGrid thinks of a building as your ever-evolving personal assistant. With users’ needs constantly changing bGrid creates an environment that is open and flexible to allow the building to grow and adapt with users over time. This concept of an ever-evolving future proof building can be achieved by using advanced sensors, big data management, and mobile devices to sense your desired climate, lighting, and workspace.

IWG plc and Digital Twins: Building the story of a perfect match

The newest addition to the Smart Buildings episode is IWG who has been known for offering managed office solutions for over 30 years. Topics and how they fit into the real estate business such as asset tracking, layout representation, and sales optimization will be covered, as well as solutions for making buildings even smarter, like indoor navigation, wayfinding, analytics, and utilization efficiency. From an engineering perspective, IWG will go through the approach of building things themselves vs. leveraging exiting products.

Want to find out how Digital Twins play a role in all of this? There is only one way to find out!

Leading up to the story of IWG will be Microsoft’s Industry Lead David Williams explaining why when we think about Smart Places and Real Estate, we should not be constrained by focusing only on the building or the facilities management of that building, instead we should focus on the people who work, visit, live in, rent or own that building.
