Since our earliest days, Autodesk has driven innovation in the built world. First, by leading the architecture and engineering professions from paper design to CAD. Next, by evolving the industry from 2D design to data-rich 3D models. And now, we enter the third phase: connected construction.
The status quo of building puts critical data in silos, prevents collaboration and leads to delays, risk and costly rework. Given these challenges, no one has delivered on the true promise of unified construction from design through turnover and operations.
The industry needs better solutions. Ways to seamlessly connect data all the way from the earliest phases of design, through planning and construction and long into the operations phase. Builders also need better information in order to connect with the right partners, building relationships that will deliver high-quality work with minimal drama.
And we, at Autodesk, need to deliver tools to achieve this: solutions that reduce risk, help deliver projects faster and drive a more sustainable, safe and efficient industry.
With Autodesk Build, Autodesk BIM Collaborate and Autodesk Takeoff we’ve brought together the most powerful portfolio of construction management software products in the industry. We now support workflows spanning all phases of construction, from design to planning, to building and to operations in a way that no other company can. But it is not just about the breadth of our workflows. It is about depth as well. Each product is best of breed in its category and does more than simply tickboxes. This depth results from our relentless focus on the customer. We partner closely with teams in the office and jobsite to identify and improve how technology can improve the way we build. And finally, in addition to breadth and depth, we have focused on connectivity. In the past year, we have made tremendous strides in connecting our products, and more importantly, your data. Construction data now seamlessly flows across the lifecycle and is available to the teams in the right place at the right time. You can start in your authoring tools, collaborate across the team during the design stage, push plans and models to preconstruction for coordination, quantity takeoff and procurement, and once you are ready, directly push that data to your project management and field teams.
The breadth of our portfolio, the depth of our capabilities and the connections that bring together meaningful workflows ushers in a new era of connected construction. The era of Autodesk Construction Cloud.
Autodesk Construction Cloud is comprised of three core pillars: Advanced Technology, the Builder’s Network and Predictive Insights.
Our Advanced Technology equips builders with powerful and easy-to-use tools for every workflow in construction. This mix of power and simplicity is crucial. In order for solutions to get real adoption in the field or office, they must be intuitive. They need to actually make the job easier. And when both of these are true, teams start demanding them on every job.
The Builder’s Network is a real-time, crowdsourced network, powered by BuildingConnected, which connects owners and builders to the right trade partners for the best project outcomes. Instead of relying on your rolodex, you can now tap into all the talent in your region, increasing your ability to manage bids and quickly build the right team.
At the core of Predictive Insights is Construction IQ, which takes previously siloed project data, automatically looks for patterns and highlights those to people who can react in real time. This leads to powerful insights that help you make better decisions on current and future projects. Decisions that reduce risk. Decisions that help you deliver projects safely and efficiently.
At Autodesk Construction Solutions, our mission is to help teams meet the world’s rapidly expanding building and infrastructure needs, while making construction more predictable, safe and sustainable. Autodesk Construction Cloud is the first step in realising this mission. As we continue to build, we look forward to partnering closely with you to help drive productivity, reduce risk and guide the industry forward.
