The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) is seeking a supplier to develop an interactive online demonstrator for the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26.

The digital twin will be used as a public visualisation tool at the COP26 in Glasgow this autumn to show how connected digital twins can support climate resilience.

The initiative is part of the CDBB’s National Digital Twin Climate Resilience Demonstrator Project (CReDo).

A digital twin will be developed across energy, water, and telecoms networks with the aim of improving climate resilience across infrastructure.

There will be a focus on the impact of extreme weather such as flooding.

CDBB is looking for an interactive demonstrator, as well as one that can be run as a simulated version with no input from the viewer.

It has asked that the demonstrator proposals be aimed at “non-technical, diverse public audiences” and not contain any real data or refer to real locations.

The chosen supplier will use data developed with the CreDo team, with whom they will run meetings and workshops.

The deadline for bids is 22 August.
