Patented digital twin technology

Creating the future of
autonomous buildings

Cohesion's patented digital twin is the backbone of the industry-leading data insights platform. It provides access to data and insights on how on-premises or cloud systems and people interact with the building. It also enables autonomous actions that optimize building systems, such as access control, energy monitoring, HVAC, indoor air quality and more.

Our digital twin achieves autonomy by integrating with all devices and systems in the building through open and secure protocols. It then combines system data with occupant-centric data from the tenant experience features to derive truly unique and comprehensive information about buildings. These insights create actions to command building systems for real-time optimization, resulting in greater ROI.

Deep dive into our data lakehouse

Our digital twin is built on a state-of-the-art data lakehouse. This is how we capture, store and process structured, semi-structured and unstructured data with the greatest data quality, performance, security and governance. This foundational data architecture is what supports all of the functions and insights available on Cohesion— business intelligence, real-time data applications, data science and machine learning.


Cohesion’s patented digital twin technology is purpose-built for building owners  and operators to provide data and insights of how people and systems interact with the building. Cohesion Digital Twin technology collects and contextualizes millions of data points in real-time with a thorough understanding of a building’s various spaces, systems, and devices to enable autonomous actions that optimizes building systems and increases asset valuation.

Data from access control systems, elevators, occupancy sensors, air quality monitors, , CMMS systems, space reservation systems, vendor management systems, HVAC systems, weather, energy, and human interactions are used to create a robust data model that is the foundation for the digital twin visualizations and tools., as well as autonomous optimizations.

  • The digital twin technology measures and enhances operational efficiency and enables data-driven decision-making.
  • It builds flexibility and resilience into the organization’s workplace model. 
  • Operational enhancements and experiential improvements made possible by digital twin technology can have positive impacts on tenant retention rates.
  • It aids in benchmarking and evaluating performance over time and against peers.
  • A digital twin enables building owners and operators to adapt to changing market conditions while increasing the value of the asset.

Digital twin technology connects to, integrates with and collects data from all IoT sensors, building operations and maintenance systems, as well as various internal and external data sources that impact building performance and the experience of its occupants. Cohesion already integrates with the majority of the leading building systems. We are also continually adding to our library, so you can be confident our technology can seamlessly connect to your building.
