IoT and BIM

Library at Kingswood campus

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) are being integrated with Digital Twin technologies to optimise energy consumption and indoor environmental parameters in the John Phillips Library, Kingswood campus.

The study is being undertaken by Centre for Smart Modern Construction (opens in a new window) to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13.

The study will capture live interactions, simulate data and use visualisation modelling tools like BIM to develop management procedures in the form of best practice guidelines.

These best practice guidelines will assist Library managers in optimising energy consumption and indoor environmental parameters.
