What is a Digital Twin?
A digital twin is a digital replica of a physical entity. It documents all of the systems, components, materials, and information that make up it’s physical copy. In the case of Northern Nomad, the digital twin holds information of every aspect of the constructed home. This allows us to keep track of the entire project, and documents all of the internal components for future use. Need to make a cut into the wall for a pipe repair? We can open up our digital twin and see exactly where the cut needs to be made to avoid damaging the surrounding components. Our digital twin is built using the Building Information Modelling (BIM) software Revit, and integrates the architectural, construction, plumbing, mechanical, and electrical system details all in one digital file.
