Retroactive scanning to predict the future
As a partner of Living Tomorrow, Scanbie will be responsible for the development of a digital version – a digital twin - of the new campus. At very regular intervals, the construction process will be digitally mapped via 3D laser scanning. Sensors will collect real-time data which can create predictive simulations.
In this way it becomes possible to better understand how the building will perform in the moment and into the future. One of the objectives is to expand the 3D model in such a way that operational data can be linked to the model to provide a comprehensive integrated solution.
This periodic approach facilitates the seamless digitization of the entire construction process, allowing retroactive progress through the different phases of the entire construction process even after the construction project has been completed. It offers endless options. For example, one could review the 'windproof' delivery phase in detail at any time. Or investigate and measure the placement of pipes, view specific parts in the building, add information, …
