Time to Wake Up! How We Can Win The Race to Net-Zero Buildings

Time to Wake Up! How We Can Win The Race to Net-Zero Buildings

The time is now. Our buildings account for 40% of all carbon emissions and have a huge potential to help us tackle climate change.

The industry agrees, technology that supports whole life performance modelling is key to leveraging that potential. Particularly where we are able to evolve thousands of dormant design stage 3D models and awaken them into digital twins that measure performance across the building lifecycle and inform our paths to decarbonisation and Net-Zero. This Sleeping Digital Twin approach provides many benefits, not only for our planet, but also our well-being and bottom line too.

However, there are many challenges and barriers that all building stakeholders must address collectively before we can fully embrace and utilise whole-life performance modelling. Particularly surrounding the handover, ownership and sharing of digital models. 

Presented by The B1M in partnership with IES, this exclusive live discussion with experts from across the sector will explore these challenges and provide clear, practical takeaways for attendees to start to overcome barriers and make the changes needed to fully embrace the opportunities that this approach presents. You’ll also be able to ask questions of the experts in an open Q&A.

This special event will coincide with the release of a new free-to-access landmark whitepaper produced by IES in collaboration with industry experts. 

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
