When our company ATEA moved into one of the world’s smartest buildings, Sola Airport Arena in Norway, I wanted to create a digital twin of the new premises in Unity using the Building Information Model (BIM). The process took about a week and became incredibly complex, lost a lot of information along the way and the final model was too large for a web version.
Tridify solved all my problems – importing and converting Architectural files became much easier, the new model runs smoothly in a browser but most importantly, all the BIM data was kept intact and it only took a few hours. I was able to link technical data to objects automatically using tags, instead of manually, which saved a lot of time. The digital twin now works perfectly, divided into layers and streaming live data from sensors around the building, with technical BIM information visible when looking at objects.
Tridify also makes updating the model with new modified BIM files an easy task. I’m already looking forward to utilizing and improving our automated workflow for our new building at Hasle Linje in Oslo.
