Our mission

Invicara helps owners, operators and our partners create Digital Twins of buildings and infrastructure. Those Digital Twins serve as information and intelligence hubs that support to more efficient, reliable, and healthy facilities.

We envision a smarter way of working—and an empowered industry. Our vision calls for richer, more accurate information driving the transformation of the entire ecosystem of the built environment.

The Invicara team came together to realise our vision. We’re senior industry leaders and entrepreneurs with deep experience in every phase of the building lifecycle. From locations around the world, we apply our industry knowledge to the task of fulfilling our mission.

Our story

Invicara is a global company dedicated to Digital Twins of the built environment. Industry leaders turn to us because we offer the solutions and platform that deliver on the promise of Digital Twins.

Invicara does not view a Digital Twin as a product with a predefined set of functionalities, as some do. Our technology powers customized, interoperable, and intelligent solutions that work in unison. We’re currently supporting projects in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, India, and Singapore. An investment by Kingspan Group supports our mission and is helping us extend Digital Twins to manufacturing environments.
