Introducing the workplace digital twin.

Anacle Gemini™ Digital Twin is a cloud-based visualisation platform which enables a smart building workplace experience. Developed on the Unity Gaming Engine for rapidly building 3D representations of a building and its assets, the platform unlocks architectural, BIM, operational and financial data and presents this valuable insights back to the space and facilities manager, within the context of an accurate virtual model. Viewed through desktop, mobile or smart glasses, with enhance diagnostics capabilities with “X-Ray Vision”.

Full virtual replica.

Workplace planners can easily upload floorplans (PDFs, CAD, BIM plans) to generate accurate 2D/3D digital twins for spatial data, then easily scale for the entire portfolio.  

Space, inventory and bookings.   

Space managers can easily allocate desks or meeting rooms with complete visibility into what space you have, where people sit, real-time vacancy, and which departments occupy space in your facilities.  

People and asset tracking.

Catalogue and track every person, asset, or equipment. Organise assets into spatial inventories so you know where everything is and report on these in detail.

Connect IoT devices and data.

Connect real-life assets with their IoT data, giving users both holistic and granular visibility of the information that matters most to them. 

Scenario and space planning.

Build portfolio to floor level scenario plans with the help of predictive analytics and IoT data patterns. Plan and model for departmental changes, workspace assignments, and hybrid zones and to right size your workspace.

Smart office decisions.

Predictive decision-making makes it easier to control and improve invisible office building comforts including — HVAC and air quality control systems, energy consumption, emissions, security systems, and access control, whilst keeping operating costs low.

Why use a workplace digital twin?

Digital twins are an exceptional way of capturing buildings and spaces in immersive 3D and can move the needle across many industry use cases. For decades, engineers have used computer-aided design (CAD) to create 3D twins of buildings and other assets—including NASA spacecraft. Now, with the convergence with smart building systems, artificial intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, see your building and its digital twin connected and watch them evolve together over time.

Enhance occupant experience

Monitor live and historical temperature, occupancy, and air-quality data within rooms and open spaces to improve occupant comfort.

Equipment uptime

Remotely diagnose equipment issues with immediate access to all relevant operational data to enable faster decisions.

Improve energy efficiency

Look for spikes in energy usage, inefficient systems, or wasteful practices. Identify trends, patterns, and areas of improvement.

Maximise asset performance

Quickly pinpoint and address equipment and process anomalies from the plant floor to improve worker productivity and efficiency.

Stages of digital workplace evolution.

According to the Verdantix maturity model, there are five stages of digital twin evolution. Essentially, the more mature the twin is, the more valuable it becomes.

1. Descriptive Twin

Acting as a foundation for a facility’s data, all of the building-related information is consolidated into a virtual model which accurately reflects its real-world structure.

2. Informative twin

This goes beyond housing the building’s information, it connects to IOT and sensor data giving you complete visibility of how your assets, spaces, and systems are operating together.

3. Predictive twin

A digital twin can use its historical data to run analytics and predict trends—enabling the operator to take a more proactive approach, preempting issues before they arise.

4. Comprehensive twin

As the digital twin continues to evolve, real-time simulation for future “what-if” scenarios become possible. At this stage, the insights gained are truly invaluable for the efficient running of a facility.

5. Autonomous twin

The ultimate business value comes at this final stage of maturity. The twin will have the data and processes established to automatically take action based on the insights it delivers.

How to create a smart office.

Building and scaling a smart office using a workplace digital twin requires a 5-step approach: creating a blueprint, capturing the space, building the initial digital twin and data model, then boosting capabilities.

Aligning stakeholders on a clear vision of Digital Twins is a crucial first step. A blueprint should define; the types of twins the organisation will pursue, the order for building them to maximize value and reusability, the way their capabilities will evolve, and their ownership and governance structures.




Digital twins 3d models can be created from variety of plans or scans. Anacle has developed a 2.5D Space Editor that allows users to update the space of your building in a quick and easy way. With Autocad files, the 2.5D space can be
created within minutes and then tagged to get the metrics from the system.

Scan to CAD plan: 

Schematic Scan to Plan: 
Raster (image) schematic plans created from sectioned views of the point cloud. This is a low-cost way to visualize the layout of a space, and an ideal option for projects that don’t require scaled CAD plans.

Architectural Scan to Plan: 
2D AutoCAD AIA-compliant architectural drawings, to scale and accurate to ¼” to ⅝” (USIBD LOA30). Great for space planning, rentable area calculations, renovation planning, and facilities management scenarios.

Scan to BIM:
Scanning pros can come to your site and perform 3D Laser Scanning with powerful  Geosystems scanners. Anacle will use point cloud data to create an Autodesk Revit model.

Architectural Scan to BIM:
Suitable for use in subsequent design work by an architectural firm or in facilities management platforms.

Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) Scan to BIM:
Suitable for retrofit or pre-renovation planning, or for pipe, ducting, and conduit routing and coordination.

Other ways to capture space range from 3D Laser Scanning and Virtual Walkthroughs, to Drone and UAV or Mesh Models. All can be layered into a digital twin.

Anacle’s developers, artists, and engineers work with the Unity Game engine to build and deliver custom real-time 3D experiences for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), mobile, desktop, and web.

We can now prepare your 3D and CAD data with flexible data ingestion pipelines faster than ever before.  Importing of more than 40 different CAD and 3D file types, preserving critical hierarchy and metadata for your application, while letting you configure your data to perform on any target device.

Anacle lead the design and build for digital twins. We gather all stakeholders from business, IT and data science teams to ensure solutions and visualitations meet  objectives.

The data model is built around the four pillars of data integrity: integration, data quality, enrichment, and location intelligence. All four are essential, but for many organizations, integration is the foundation without which the other three cannot deliver on their full potential. Integration ensures that data can be synchronised across multiple platforms, that information is kept up-to-date, and that ultimately, corporate data can be brought together under one roof where it can truly provide maximum value with advanced analytics.

A digital twin can use its historical data to run analytics and predict trends—enabling the operator to take a more proactive approach, preempting issues before they arise.


Once the digital twin’s initial use cases are up and running, it’s time to expand its capabilities by adding more data layers and analytics to support new use cases such as what-if simulations and prescriptions through the use of AI and advanced modeling techniques.
