Twinview improves the lives of building owners and facility managers by giving them the tools to optimise building performance whilst also increasing the productivity of the workforce. This is made possible through the utilisation of QR codes and Bluetooth beacons.
Managing building operations and maintenance can be challenging since facility managers are responsible for a range of building systems. Building data and as-built information tends to be stored away in a physical format which can render them inaccessible in most scenarios. Twinview aims to simplify building operations by storing all building information digitally on a single platform that is easily accessible.
Twinview recognises the power of QR codes, and the impact they can have on improving a building’s operations. Our mobile app provides a very powerful tool in the shape of a QR code scanner and manager, giving users the ability to deploy QR codes across all of a building’s assets, spaces and equipment.
The user can recall asset data instantly by simply pointing a camera at a discreet QR code that is attached to any type of equipment. IoT-enabled sensors placed around a building produces live data streams relating to particular assets and this information can be accessed quickly and easily by using QR codes.
The emergence of digital twin technology has been one of the most exciting developments of our generation. In this piece, we'll address some of the most frequently asked questions regarding digital twins, both in a general sense and as they relate specifically to budlings. By the end of this article, you should better understand what digital twins are, how they work, and why they're becoming an increasingly important technology in various industries.
Twinview has built-in Bluetooth beacon support which opens up exciting features such as automatic location and the tracking of assets. By strategically placing Bluetooth-compatible beacons around the spaces in a building, users can track a variety of metrics such as which assets are located in particular areas e.g. the boiler room.
Building operators can also track the number of people in a room/building which can provide insights for improving space utilisation and reducing costs.
The use of QR codes and Bluetooth beacons presents many operational benefits to property owners and managers.
Our parent company, Space Group, hosts an annual _shift conference that brings together industry leaders and professionals from around the world to discuss the latest strategies and innovations in decarbonising the built environment. Held on November 9th in Newcastle upon Tyne, this year's conference was a tremendous success, with hundreds of attendees joining in-person and online.

In this episode of Twinview Talks, we speak to Phanos Hadjikyriakou, CEO and Co-Founder of 2050 Materials, about how the AECO industry can address it's carbon challenges, and what role data plays in unlocking those for us.
Building Management Systems (BMS) have long been the gold standard in controlling and monitoring a building's mechanical, electrical, and electromechanical services. These systems streamline operations, allowing facility managers to oversee everything from HVAC to lighting to security systems. However, a new technology has emerged that pushes the boundaries of building management even further – the digital twin.
