Using digital technology to help manage, operate and maintain assets more efficiently, we’re collaborating with Melbourne Airport on its digital transformation journey to improve the use of data and information across projects – including helping to create a digital twin of the airport.
Melbourne Airport’s operator, Australia Pacific Airports Corporation (APAC), is embarking on a technology-driven transformation path that will see new digital technologies being implemented such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Building Information Modelling (BIM).
Our critical role involves providing strategic and technical resources to support the digital program and the adoption of these new technologies. Engaging with the airport’s Capital Delivery Project Management team, we’re developing the BIM delivery process in our role as on-site manager of the common data environment. As part of this, we’re helping build a digital twin – a complete digital representation of the airport – to improve knowledge sharing and support data-driven asset management.
Our dedicated on-site team are also developing an immersive studio to bring capital projects to life through augmented and virtual reality technology, allowing potential issues to be identified at an earlier stage of a project to save time and money. This project follows our successful delivery of the Melbourne Airport’s enterprise GIS system, point cloud scans, and digital twins of multi-storey car parks, surrounding infrastructure assets, and Terminal 1.
