Pioneering Digitalisation of Industrial Real Estate in Germany

Listen to this article

Industrial real estate manager and developer BENO Holding AG will be using Nemetschek’s dTwin digital buildings operation platform to deliver visual intelligence and analytics across its portfolio of light-industrial buildings in Germany.

The solution bridges the gap between planning, construction and operation and enables building managers to make better, data-driven decisions – with BENO aiming to create digital twins of all existing buildings.

The Munich-based developer owns, manages and leases warehouse and logistics properties that include additional spaces for production or offices.

Several buildings were built prior to 2000 and the company is focused on retrofitting and repurposing them to meet the evolving needs of tenants.

Michael Bussmann, CEO, tells FM Magazine, “The age of our buildings means it is difficult to determine some parameters which are essential for conversions or new lettings.

“We see ourselves as a pioneer in the digitalisation of operational real estate and are constantly working to improve collaborative processes. This saves us time and, in particular, reduces CO2 emissions. This is where dTwin fits perfectly into our corporate philosophy.

“We are convinced that dTwin will help us to further drive forward the transformation of our buildings and take building management to a new level. This will benefit everyone involved, especially our tenants,”

We are delighted that BENO has decided to use dTwin as Michael Bussmann and his team have a clear idea of what they expect from a Digital Twin and have worked with us to create the best possible setup.

dTwin supports the creation of complete digital twins which consolidates building information and brings additional economic and ecological benefits including support for the provision of virtual tours, more efficient planning and execution of conversions, and improved data analysis (particularly in fire protection, optimised resource management and maintenance).

All existing models of a building can be collected and visualised on a single platform and supplemented with laser scans and panoramic photos. This creates walk-through models in which the condition of a building can be called up at any time using real-time data from IoT sensors. The digital twin can thus be used for virtual inspections or the optimisation of energy management, for example. 

“We are delighted that BENO has decided to use dTwin as Michael Bussmann and his team have a clear idea of what they expect from a Digital Twin and have worked with us to create the best possible setup. Since every building is different and every operator has different needs, it was important for us to define dTwin optimally for the requirements of the BENO Group and to set it up in such a way that it can be easily adapted to different scenarios,” says César Flores Rodríguez, Chief Division Officer Planning & Design and Digital Twin at the Nemetschek Group. “The cooperation with BENO shows that we have succeeded in this. We are also gaining valuable insights into the further development of dTwin in order to increase its benefits even further. We are convinced that everyone involved will benefit from this close cooperation.”
