Gaming wins and digital twins

The influence of gaming on the digitisation of the built environment.

Andrew Knight speaks to David Wier-McCall of Epic Games.  Yes, THAT Epic Games of Fortnite fame! The publishers of Fortnite and creators of the Unreal Engine have a specific business unit that focuses on applying their technology to the fields of architecture, engineering and construction.  

David explains how Epic Games become involved in the built environment, how a digital twin can start even with a single, publicly available data point, and how these technologies can help us create better and smarter buildings using these tools.
