    A great design is not just about mixing engineering standards with the owner’s vision of what they would like to build. When meeting with owners and other stakeholders who may not appreciate the finer points of road and site design, it always comes down to cost. Every really great design balances the need to deliver the best engineering design that fits the owner’s vision with accurate cost analysis for decision making. From concept proposal to detailed design to construction management, Autodesk, Inc., products have made it easier than ever for engineers and designers to do their job of delivering projects using improved CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflows. This unique class will review key workflows required to perform an accurate “cost of works” analysis of your detailed design in real time to improve decision making during design and ultimately streamline the construction bid preparation and management process after approvals. This session features AutoCAD Civil 3D, InfraWorks 360, and Navisworks Manage. AIA Approved
