SIM(ulation for) CON(struction Management)

SimCon specialises in simulation approaches for supporting and improving construction management. These approaches include visualisation and mixed reality, integration with data sources, e.g., Internet of Things (IoT), the use of building information models (BIMs) and optimisation and/or analytics methods for data-driven planning. SimCon is pioneering the use of digital twins for advanced, data-driven, culturally accessible construction planning and production.
