Industry Whitepaper Launch Event: Time to Wake Up! How We Can Win The Race to Net-Zero Buildings

Last updated: 12th October 2023

Built environment stakeholders are invited to join a free webinar on Wednesday 18th October 2023 to mark the launch of a collaborative industry whitepaper aimed at improving performance across the building lifecycle, as we work collectively towards net-zero goals.

Free webinar – Wednesday 18th October 2023, 4pm – 5pm BST

This exclusive session, presented by the world’s largest and most subscribed-to video channel for construction, The B1M in Partnership with IES, will mark the launch of a landmark collaborative whitepaper aimed at improving the tracking, measurement and monitoring of key performance metrics across the entire building lifecycle.

Featuring results from an industry-wide stakeholder survey and in-depth insights from a range of built environment industry contributors, the paper will introduce the concept of the Sleeping Digital Twin – the theory that every building in the world most likely already has an existing 3D model, which is not currently being utilised to its full potential. Exploring the benefits and challenges of reutilising these existing models as we race towards a net-zero built environment.

What Will Be Covered?

This live webinar will feature a selection of industry experts from across the built environment sector that contributed to the development of this paper. Focusing on the findings of the paper, the panel will discuss the benefits and challenges of awakening Sleeping Digital Twins and taking a whole-life performance modelling approach to the way we design and operate buildings, from both an AEC practitioner and end client perspective.

In particular we’ll explore the challenges and barriers surrounding the handover, ownership and sharing of digital models and provide clear, practical takeaways for attendees to start to overcome barriers and fully embrace the opportunities this approach presents. Attendees will also be able to ask questions of the experts in an open Q&A.

The event will be hosted by The B1M’s Fred Mills and feature expert insight from:

  • Don McLean – Founder and Chief Executive Officer, IES
  • Carl Collins – Head of Digital Engineering, CIBSE
  • Gillian Brown – Vice Chairperson, Energy Managers Association
  • Todd Lukesh – Client Engagement Manager, Gafcon Digital, an Accenture Company
  • Chris Anton – Lead Energy Officer, Perth and Kinross Council
