Autodesk Build launches globally, offering best of BIM360, PlanGrid
Construction teams have a new, single solution to turn to for project management, quality, safety, cost and closeout.
Autodesk announced the global launch of Autodesk Build Feb. 9, which unifies features from BIM 360 and PlanGrid — and adds a range of new capabilities — to help those in the field stay better connected to key data, workflows and their teams.
A part of Autodesk Construction Cloud, the new solution is designed to keep owners, general contractors and subcontractors more in sync by enhancing real-time visibility and by enabling both more collaboration and data-driven decision making.
“Our customers need to connect workflows across the construction project management lifecycle,” said Stephanie Ho, global head of customer success for Autodesk Construction Solutions, in a release. “For Autodesk Build, we developed a strong, cohesive foundation that not only delivers on the vision of connected construction, but that can scale with customers’ growth. Our customers can rely on Autodesk Build to manage their workflows more efficiently and leverage data collected across their teams to drive continuous improvement.”
Among other key functions, the new platform keeps the relevant information at the fingertips of whichever team member needs it through a common data environment, underpinned by Autodesk Docs. Real-time collaboration between the job site and office is driven by the integreated PlanGrid Build application. Autodesk Build also includes a streamlined cost management module to help teams keep track of budget changes and data analytic capabilities able to track and interpret project data.
