If the digital twin lifecycle of a building could be split into two, its creation and its use, then Gafcon focuses on its creation. Gafcon's use of the digital twin approach allows users to build a project virtually before it is built physically. Gafcon provides owners with the processes by which a digital twin can be created in a software agnostic manner. In the role of Digital Twin Integrator, Gafcon is responsible for the deployment of a customized virtual replica that incorporates all relevant data from a plethora of software platforms to make certain all components are configured and represented. Gafcon works with all parties required to plan, design, procure and construct the physical asset by first providing the digital asset, which is foundational to the use of a digital twin in the maintenance and operations phases of the lifecycle.
