Digital Twin suissetec Campus with Esri Viewer

By ioLabs AG

Solution details




The training center of suissetec in Lostorf is currently being expanded with a new building. From 2025, the second phase will involve the renovation of the existing infrastructure. For the implementation of a sponsorship concept to co-finance some parts of the construction project, suissetec, in collaboration with the Büro für Bauökonomie AG and ioLabs AG, developed a digital twin that provides a detailed digital representation of the campus, enabling interactive and comprehensive visualization. This demonstrates suissetec's vision of the future of construction. The suissetec Campus in Lostorf SO is a pioneering example of sustainable architecture and energy-efficient construction. As the first provisionally certified "Minergie" area in Switzerland, it sets new standards and demonstrates that it is possible to combine modern design with environmental consciousness. Even in the implementation of a sponsorship concept, the Swiss-Liechtenstein Building Technology Association suissetec is at the forefront with innovative technology, setting new benchmarks. During the development of sponsorship opportunities, the question quickly arose of how to make the large diversity of sponsorship possibilities visible. Because in theory everything from the ping pong table to the cafeteria to the water pipes can be sponsored in the new campus. A virtual building model was the solution: Since a BIM model already existed, it was only necessary to find a partner to bring a so-called digital twin to reality. ioLabs AG brought these capabilities. ioLabs AG, in collaboration with Büro für Bauökonomie AG and using Esri and Autodesk Forge, developed a digital twin that provides a detailed digital representation of the campus. From the external structure to the interior spaces, the digital twin transforms the buildings into dynamic models. The development focused on highlighting specific areas for object, space, and material sponsorship. Interactive elements also provide visitors with important information, and it is evident that the digital twin opens up additional applications. In the future, the twin can be incorporated into teaching or used for energy monitoring, allowing the first "Minergie" area in Switzerland to demonstrate sustainable energy and innovative control options for the area. The digital twin also serves as a navigation aid and, through QR codes, provides insights into the building architecture, supporting the existing signage.
