Platform overview

The BuildingMinds Platform is a multifaceted tool designed for ease of navigation and efficiency. On the left, you'll find a sidebar that allows you to navigate through geographic locations and custom views swiftly. It also offers quick links to essential components such as equipment, documents, and activities for immediate access.

At the top of your screen, the top-bar navigation lets you effortlessly switch between key views: the interactive Map, the Digital Twin, Sustainability, and Asset Management features.
