Developing a Digital Twin of the UConn Innovation Partnership Building

The development of a digital twin of the Innovation Partnership Building (IPB) will provide UConn students with hands-on experience in applying modern digital engineering methods and practices to achieve a higher performing building in advanced lab spaces. A digital twin of the IPB will be a living virtual and digital image with real-time data access from existing HVAC equipment, lighting, building management software, or sensors. This digital twin can effectively manage energy use, indoor air quality and comfort, space, security, and environmental impact. It can also be used as a demonstration project to showcase best practices for operating and maintaining energy-efficient, high-performing buildings.

Our team collaborated with Electrical and Computer Engineering 21 on this project.
