In August, the Smart Buildings Center hosted a 3-day hybrid conference featuring a global range of innovative case studies that showcase the latest tech across this rapidly developing industry.
The Smart Buildings Exchange (SBX) conference spotlights projects that are transforming the design, construction, and operation of built assets – focusing on those going beyond industry buzzwords, to demonstrate innovation that is actually providing enhanced experiences for users, along with better connectivity and more seamless data management for owners.
Robby Martin, Senior Customer Success Manager at Willow; along with Chan Onechanh, VP, Facility Operations at SoFi Stadium and Hollywood Park, took part in the “De-mystifying digital twins” panel, sharing an overview of what is arguably the largest stadium digital twin project on the market and using the opportunity to dispel some common misunderstandings around twin technology.
SoFi Stadium, the home of the reigning Super Bowl Champion Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers, is located at Hollywood Park, a near 300-acre sports and entertainment destination being developed by Los Angeles Rams Owner/Chairman E. Stanley Kroenke in Inglewood, California. The 3.1 million square-foot SoFi Stadium is the largest stadium in the NFL, as well as the first indoor-outdoor stadium. It seats approximately 70,000, expandable up to 100,000, with more than 260 luxury suites and more than 13,000 premium seats. SoFi Stadium chose to deploy a digital twin for this project, as traditional methods for operational asset management were not the right fit for managing a project of such massive scale.
This project is an example of a shift in the industry, signaling the necessity of digitization in real estate and use of a digital twin is fully realized in this example.
We’d like to thank the Smart Buildings Center for featuring Willow and SoFi Stadium this year.
