Where digitalisation meets performance and sustainability
TÜV SÜD takes you on a Digital Twin journey that started in 2017 in Singapore. As a leading global expert for testing, inspection and certification, TÜV SÜD @ IBP is the proof of concept for building lifecycle digitalisation from design, construction to operation.
TÜV SÜD @ IBP started on a brownfield land at 15 International Business Park in Singapore. As an integrated office and lab facility and spanning over 18,900 square metres, TÜV SÜD @ IBP is designed to meet Singapore Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Platinum Standard.
As a one-stop service provider for technical, safety, performance and compliance excellence of buildings across design, construction and operation, TÜV SÜD Real Estate and Infrastructure provides advisory, testing, inspection, certification and management services through all stages of building lifecycle. Through TÜV SÜD @ IBP, we join all relevant competencies to deliver maximum benefits for the building.
For Real Estate owners and investors, TÜV SÜD value-adds by identifying the economical and impactful use cases and processes for Digital Twin. The digital lifecycle solutions accelerate the Return-on-Invest and profit for the assets. We set up technology specifications and environment for practice-driven Digital Twin implementation and provide advice on performance-safety-cost ratio of the building operation. Eventually achieving building lifecycle success across design, construction and operation with advisory and management solutions suitable for any building type.
For contractors and project managers, TÜV SÜD @ IBP’s Digital Twin uprates the technical certainty towards a truly construction-approved building design and increase the efficiency through displaying structured centralised data on a visual project dashboard.
For facility managers and asset managers, TÜV SÜD @ IBP‘s Digital Twin automates the health and performance checks of the building, enabling a higher level of operation and maintenance transparency on building utilisation. Thus, reducing operation expenses.

Minimise construction discrepancies by comparing images captured by a drone during Smart Façade Inspection against “Asplanned” models. This is done by conducting model checkers and BIM audit.
Save up to 30% of the work cost by comparing 360-degree laser scan of all levels of TÜV SÜD @ IBP against the original BIM models to identify deviations so that they can be corrected in a timely basis. The construction progress was monitored in real-time and digital reports were created on Digital Inspection Portal automatically.

Digital lifecycle management- TÜV SÜD Digital Twin is set up as harmonised and well-structured Information, a handover platform across any disciplines and building phases to achieve seamless knowledge transfer and accurate process management throughout the building lifecycle.
Digital risk and quality management- TÜV SÜD Digital Twin accelerates defect and error detection. It transforms random spot checks into a highly agile, close-meshed full pre-testing and approval measures that provides better project and cost control for project owners.
Compliance & performance portal- TÜV SÜD Digital Twin outperforms in legal operational excellence and user experience. It makes assets the safest and most delightful places to live and work in.
Mr. Richard Hong, ASEAN Chief Executive Officer, TÜV SÜD
“Our TÜV SÜD @ IBP represents a true pivotal case study where we harness the full benefits of BIM. Being both the asset owner as well as domain BIM expert, TÜV SUD presents itself in a very unique position. Not only do we understand the key concerns of building owners, we can also leverage on our global Real Estate portfolio to benchmark new technologies and ultimately implement proven best practices within our own premises. We are truly excited to showcase our ASEAN HQ as the forefront of future digital twin!”
Mr. Klaus Langner, Director Pension Real Estate Singapore and ASEAN, South Asia, Middle East and Africa Chief Financial Officer, TÜV SÜD
"While there are some clear benefits such as clash detection and better coordination among contractors, I was still skeptical initially about the value of implementing a digital twin in TÜV SÜD @ IBP. However, I have come to realise that the real benefits of digital twin come in when you make full use of the value-added services across the Real Estate asset lifecycle, especially as an owner/operator. It starts with the testing, inspection and certification services during construction such as digital monitoring of the construction progress and smart inspection of the façade using drone, continues with predictive maintenance using sensors (e.g. for lifts) and can go as far as integrating BIM into CAFM during operation."
Mr. Kevin Kwan, Project Manager, Nakano
"By using BIM, we could plan and visualize the entire project during the pre-construction stage. We have been able to reduce cost and mitigate risks. BIM allowed us to better coordinate trades and subcontractors. Furthermore we've been able to detect clashes in mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) before construction began, thereby reducing significantly the amount of rework."
Mr. Mohd Khairomi, Senior Electrical Engineer, JTC
"The insights provided by TÜV SÜD’s Smart Lift maintenance solution (Anomalies detection and predictive maintenance) helped JTC to streamline and focus our lift operations resulting in better lift management and reliability. The feature to recommend rectification actions and solutions has certainly provide value add towards targeted response by lift companies and helped JTC and lift companies to improve our lift availability and increase the lift uptime."
Mr.Thomas Jakob, Regional President APAC, Bosch.IO
“For Bosch, co-developing the Lift Manager solution together with TÜV SÜD allowed to create a truly comprehensive offering the market was looking for. Leveraging TÜV SÜD’s profound knowledge in the lift domain and Bosch‘s expertise in the Internet of Things, we can now take the edge off the work of facility managers with a brand-agnostic end-to-end solution for remote monitoring and predictive maintenance of lifts. The Lift Manager is now in operation at both Bosch and TÜV SÜD ASEAN headquarters, providing safety and comfort to lift users and demonstrating our companies‘ commitment to delivering practice-proven solutions to customers.“
Mr. Joachim Birnthaler, Chief Executive Officer, Division Real Estate and Infrastructure, TÜV SÜD
"Digitalisation has a tangible impact on buildings – new technologies and tools such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), Building Automation Systems (BAS), Smart Lifts and Computer Aided Facility Management offer an array of advantages. In connecting these technologies, the benefits multiply and will transcend the role of buildings as a fixed asset evolving into a strategic asset: smart buildings will not only be easier to manage and more efficient in terms of energy consumption, they will also provide information and data for improved business processes generating new revenue streams.
When we decided to build TÜV SÜD’s new Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore the overall objective was to create a highly sustainable building that meets the long-term targets of efficiency, safety and usability. We approached the project thinking with the end in mind and have stuck to this approach throughout all phases of the project. And along the way, we have developed and implemented innovative tools that genuinely make the most of the advantages of a smart building."
Ms. Elise Katharina Mandat, BIM consultant, TÜV SÜD
"BIM Management for TÜV SÜD @ IBP has been essential in uniting the knowledge of Owners, Users, Contractors and Facility Managers in a common source to greatly reduce risk in design, construction and 80+ years of operation. Now that we have the means with which to build a Digital Twin and analyse it completely before occupancy, we also have the responsibility to secure this digital quality while we still have the chance. BIM Management is the key to ensuring this prophetic method delivers the results it promises."
