CDBB publishes the Gemini Papers: a blueprint for the future

Catherine Condie

“As CDBB celebrates the successful completion of its mission to advance the digital transformation of the built environment, I am excited to be able to share the learning we have gained over the past four years both within CDBB and with our many academic, government and industry partners who have made a digital built Britain a reality.

“The Gemini Papers capture the consensus viewpoint of the connected digital twin community and serve as a blueprint for future leaders and policy makers.”

Alexandra Bolton, Executive Director, CDBB


The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) is delighted to announce the publication of the Gemini Papers.

The Gemini Papers set out CDBB’s vision for the future, showcasing the vital role that connected digital twins play in improving social, economic, and environmental outcomes, to create a better quality of life for all.  

Driven by the Gemini Principles of purpose, trust and function, the papers are a series of three documents addressing the ‘What’ ‘Why’ and ‘How’ of connected digital twins. 

CDBB has worked closely with industry, academia, and government to explore and create solutions for the challenges facing the built environment.  

The Gemini Papers present our learnings from the past five years, capturing the consensus viewpoint of the connected digital twin community - serving as a blueprint for future leaders.

Congratulations to CDBB and thank you for threading together all the learning from the last five years in to such an eloquent and easy-to-understand tapestry. In order to get consistency across the industry, having one definition or understanding of key terms is vital. These papers give us a language that we can all use when talking about digital twins and information management. In the same way it can act as the single source of truth at this point in time, whilst recognising that we are on a constantly evolving journey. They can also act as great induction type documents for people who don't 'get it' and particularly the why / benefits paper for getting business cases approved.
