Through new partnership, companies plan to drive adoption of digital twins

Hexagon’s Geosystems division and the Nemetschek Group, which owns leading AEC brands including Graphisoft, Allplan and Vectorworks, have formed a strategic partnership with a view to ‘accelerating digital transformation within the AEC/O industry’.

As a first step, the partnership will look to drive the adoption of digital twins.

The two companies aim to provide customers with tools, services and expertise for an ‘end-to-end digital twin workflow’ by joining the up-to-date building data through Hexagon’s reality capture solutions with building operations powered by Nemetschek’s dTwin.

Hexagon offers ‘end-to-end’ reality capture and Scan2BIM solutions to automatically capture accurate and real-time field data. Its AI-powered solutions also support building analytics and simulations, generate progress insights as well as provide an immersive experience for navigating assets during design, construction and operations through its VR/AR and positioning technology.

dTwin, Nemetschek’s new cloud-based digital twin platform, delivers data-driven insights and helps customers to manage facilities from design to operations. According to Nemetschek, it is the first solution in the industry that fuses all data sources of a building in one overarching view.

dTwin brings together relevant information from CAD/BIM, Integrated Workplace Management Systems (IWMS), and more with real-time streams from building operations – thus, according to Nemetschek, providing value via visualisation, data analysis and assets management. With the platform, owners and operators can optimise building operations based on real time information and data-funded decision criteria.

“The future is here — digital twins make work easier, insights available and decisions better,” says Thomas Harring, president at Hexagon’s Geosystems division.


“With that, they are paving the way for a more sustainable future. Through our combined strength, we make this a reality for our customers and supercharge the buildings and infrastructure industry with data continuity and digital twins at scale.”

“We are very excited to partner with Hexagon”, says César Flores Rodríguez, chief division officer planning & design, and digital twin at the Nemetschek Group.

“Together we will build digital twins for the large market of existing buildings, making those future proof. Also, we aim to address efficient and sustainable building operations and smart renovation, retrofit or revitalisation projects.”
