Firm says it will leverage technology to enable asset owners/managers and E&C firms to better design, build and manage construction projects
Hloov has announced that it has become the first regional member of the international Digital Twin Consortium. Through its collaboration with the digital twin authority and its international members, the firm says it will enable regional construction stakeholders to leverage technology and processes to better design, build and manage carbon-neutral projects.
The construction industry is struggling with numerous challenges, however the generation of vast amounts of construction and demolition (C&D) waste is the industry’s biggest issue, the firm said in its statement.
It notes that the real estate and engineering and construction sectors have to evolve and embrace technology to reduce their burden on the environment, while simultaneously supporting government commitments to fighting climate change. Hloov said the UAE and other GCC countries have signed the Paris Agreement to fight climate change.
“Digital Twins provides an excellent opportunity for the Project stakeholders to simulate, monitor, and optimise time, cost, and quality KPI’s of the infrastructure asset lifecycle, resulting in improved productivity, reduced waste, lower cost, and increased reliability and availability. Hloov is committed to helping clients to accelerate their journey of Digital Transformation and Digital Twins,” said Suhail Arfath, director – Digital Transformation & Innovation at Hloov.
“We are excited about Hloov becoming a member of Digital Twin Consortium. Their knowledge of the engineering and construction sector is a great asset for our membership as we work to advance the use of digital twins in the market,” remarked Dr. Richard Soley, executive director at the Digital Twin Consortium.
