Secured digital built environment

The secured digital built environment working groups focuses on understanding the fundamental theory, requirements, and development of standards, systems and tools to apply security principles to ensure safe and sustainable digital built environments.

Building information modelling

For many buildings and critical infrastructure, virtual models are becoming more practically utilised for monitoring, controlling and decision making, and in cases have real-time capacity for emergency response and management. Data and system security issues are critical for current and future digital society.

The emergence of BIM (Building Information Modelling) in AEC/O (Architecture, Engineering and Construction/Operation) has revolutionised the construction industry and triggered digital transition through physical asset lifecycles across different sectors. Digital twins have further expanded the area for digitalisation through leveraging IoTs (Internet of Things), data-driven approaches, machine learning and AI (Artificial Intelligence).
