Following the inaugural National Digital Twin Day, which ICE hosted in partnership with the Centre for Digital Built Britain, this month’s ICE Learning Hub update includes a new programme on digital twins and lessons learnt from Formula One.
Other newly launched learning content include programmes on the future of the retail, libraries and research facilities, part of Arup’s foresight series.
Digital Twin - Can civil engineers learn from Formula One?
This programme is for built environment professionals who are aware of digital twins but would like to learn more about one of the first successful practical digital twin concepts. Formula One embraced the technology 25 years ago. This programme will teach and inform the listener how it was achieved and how its success can translate to the built environment.
Peter van Manen, Consultant, Frazer Nash Consultancy was a guest speaker at the National Digital Twin Day event at ICE HQ, One Great George Street on 9 Sept 2019. This programme was produced using his presentation and post-lecture interviews.

Future of libraries
Libraries are evolving to meet the changing needs of the cities they serve, in terms of the social infrastructure they provide and the services they offer. They are becoming strategic city assets, designed to stimulate cultural exchange and economic prosperity, as well as nurture new community foundations and connections.
The findings contained in this report are the result of a global engagement with a network of experts and enthusiasts in the field, including library operators, policy makers, urban designers, planners, architects and members of NGOs involved in funding libraries.
Insights were gathered through a series of workshops held in London, Milan, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Hong Kong, Singapore, New York and San Francisco.
Future of labs

It provides a review of key trends shaping the future of scientific research that will be of use to planners, designers and administrators involved in laboratory design projects.
The findings are a synthesis of research and trends in the field of laboratory design, informed by conversations with experts across industry and academia.
