Powered by the digital twin: Sustainable infrastructure in energy and environmental design
The Amberg Visitor Center was planned and built with sustainability in mind from day one by Siemens Real Estate (SRE). THE IMPUSE is LEED-Gold certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Siemen’s “digital twin” technology was used to design the building and virtual model by using the BIM method - "Building Information Modeling" with which a building is first built digitally and then in reality. The Digital Twin not only simplifies planning and construction, but it also enables particularly sustainable and operational resource-saving. The Digital Twin forms the basis for digital visitor management with demand-driven control of lighting, ventilation and much more.
