Brusnika was founded in Tyumen, Siberia, in 2004 to specialise in constructing democratic urban housing across Russia’s largest cities. To improve construction quality and productivity, Brusnika sought to implement a cloud-based document management solution. With BIM 360 within Autodesk Construction Cloud™ for document management, Brusnika reduced the time of design coordination by 95%.

Brusnika began its BIM journey in 2017, aiming to improve construction quality management and digitise its workflows. While the company was already using Revit to retrieve data and information from their models, their storage management system was outdated and inconsistent, leading to data loss and inefficiencies.
“As the business was expanding, the process of managing and storing design data became more difficult due to the lack of formalised reporting structure and design coordination. With more projects coming online, we needed a solution that would increase efficiency in reporting, structure project data to identify and eliminate project pain points, and increase collaboration and construction productivity.”
Brusnika’s BIM team wanted to understand what products could improve internal collaboration and positively impact construction productivity and project performance. After evaluating several solutions, the team decided to deploy BIM 360 as its common data environment (CDE) for collaboration and data management as it met their desired business outcomes of quality, cost, and time savings.
The company’s goal was to use BIM 360 to organise, connect and access information from any device anytime and anywhere and measure processes using its analytic capabilities to optimise workflows.
“BIM 360 is a valuable tool, and we selected it as our construction document management platform for two reasons. First, it provided the ability for us to unite all stakeholders in one place. Secondly, due to its interoperability with our other IT systems, we’ve garnered greater insight into our project data.”
According to the project management team in Brusnika’s Novosibirsk branch, using cloud-based construction document management reduced the time of design coordination by 95%.
It used to take 15-25 minutes - depending on the complexity of the drawing - to compare two drawings. Now, it takes between 1-5 minutes, freeing up time to coordinate more essential tasks.
With more than 50 specialists involved in a single project, organising the team’s work in a CDE reduces the risk of information loss. As a result of the successful deployment of BIM 360 on 36 projects in less than ten months, Brusnika could scale its business with new projects while opening new offices.
With BIM 360 and other construction quality management systems in place, Brusnika is confident and ready to expand across Moscow to offer innovative housing solutions that change people’s lives.
