2021 World Changing Idea
Word from Bill
"The quality of the output is impressive, it has exceeded my expectations. The issues that have been identified by Podium Twin range from quite major down to the finest of details. The legibility and accuracy accompanying reports have greatly improved the speed at which we have been able to resolve the design. The work Podium Twin is doing for us is incredibly powerful and is going to provide huge amount of value in the short and long term." Jerome Johnson Project Director, One Sydney Harbour, Lendlease
"I have already been hugely impressed by the outcomes of the recent work that Podium Twin has undertaken for our MIND project. In such a short period of time Podium Twin delivered a structural solution from the Digital products. I see this as the beginning of a fascinating and transformational journey!” Mark Timbs Head of Digital and CIO Europe, Lendlease
- Lendlease Podium, a first-of-its-kind digital property lifecycle platform, launched on 30 June 2020.
- Using Lendlease’s proprietary Contextual Universal Building System (CUBS) and AI capability, Lendlease Podium can create a digital twin of a building i.e. it can self-generate a digital version of a building at a 1:1 scale. This feature was recently deployed for the Milan Innovation District (MIND) project. Lendlease Podium reduced the typical design duration by 60% and contributed to a design resource saving of 70%.
- Lendlease Podium can also align design goals with sustainability outcomes. Its goal seeking functionality helps unlock the lowest cost paths to net zero carbon precincts. Recently, a digital twin was created to test and determine the viability of building a multistorey complex from sustainable timber in Melbourne, Australia. While this timber had been used previously in construction, it had not been tested in high rise buildings (in this case, a 29-story apartment tower).
- Lendlease Podium enables ongoing innovation in materials and sustainable designs to be modelled, validated and optimised in digital form, before the building is physically built.
Behind the name
SMART ‘MIND’ POWERS FUTURE ITALIAN DISTRICT WITH HUMAN APPROACH TO BUILDING AND DESIGN
In order to make the Milan Innovation District (MIND) vision a reality, we need to re-evaluate the current property lifecycle, including the way we design, build, and operate. Lendlease Podium is playing a pivotal part in this project to help create places where digital technologies enhance connections, promote the exchange of knowledge and improve people’s lives.
HOW DIGITAL TWINS WILL TROUBLESHOOT – AND EVEN HELP DESIGN – THE BUILDINGS OF THE FUTURE
Digital twins – not only can they save millions of dollars in construction costs and improve productivity, but they can also reveal the carbon footprint of a building before it’s even been built. Lendlease Digital CEO William Ruh and Group Head of Innovation Jasna Sims share their insights with the World Economic Forum.
