Connect to the future.

Advances in technology are ushering in a new era where connectivity is ubiquitous and data is at the center of every building and infrastructure project – informing every person, process and decision – enabling AEC firms of all sizes to reap greater ROI.

See how Autodesk is guiding designers, engineers, builders and owners to take advantage of these trends, and supercharge AEC projects, from planning and design, to construction and operation.

The future of making things

AEC Excellence Awards showcase

Check out the highlight reel and featured projects from this year’s AEC Excellence Awards.

An era of connection for builders, designers, and engineers

Find out how the AEC industry may be affected by major changes revolutionizing the means of production and the nature of demand.

3 technology disruptors to the AEC industry

Technology is changing rapidly in design, engineering, and construction. Find out how to better embrace these changes to create more value and competitive differentiation.

Make more informed design decisions, build more efficiently and cost-effectively, and manage and maintain buildings with greater ease using BIM.

Reduce waste and increase profit margins with tools that help contractors and subcontractors plan better, produce results faster, and finish projects on budget.

Use BIM in any type of civil infrastructure project to create visualizations for stakeholder approval, develop 3D models to identify problems before hand-off, and deliver projects on time and on budget.

Use intelligent data to improve operational efficiencies and meet compliance requirements. Minimize design and construction cost, shorten schedules, and enhance project quality for Engineering, Procurement, Construction (EPC).

Improve the performance, efficiency, and data quality of your utility infrastructure projects throughout their lifecycle with BIM. Improve service through better stakeholder collaboration, process efficiency, and access to data for safety and reliability.

Start projects faster, collaborate across disciplines, and develop intelligent 3D models for both the inside and outside of industrial buildings and plants.

What is BIM?

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that equips architecture, engineering, and construction professionals with the insight and tools to more efficiently plan, design, construct, and manage buildings and infrastructure.

Why BIM matters to your business

Whether you’re looking to comply with government and commercial BIM mandates, or you simply want to improve your firm’s productivity and quality of work, BIM is worth a closer look.

The efficiencies and speed I’ve gained by using BIM allow me to be competitive with my fees and spend more time on design.

—Davey McEathron, Principal, Davey McEathron Architecture

Now, we have more insight and control over costs during every stage of design. We’ve also been able to reduce or eliminate RFIs (requests for information) and change orders thanks to BIM.

— Sarah Dreger, Director, virtual design and construction

The beauty of BIM is that we can get rid of the walls between design, engineering, and construction. We have to get the governments to understand and contracts to include shared risk all through the project. We’re trying to educate people, because that’s where we’re going to really unlock the value of BIM.

—Neil Evans, director, Strategy and Business Development, SMEC (Australia)

How to get started with BIM

Implementation resources, training, and support

Get started or build on your BIM skills with implementation guides, pilot project workbooks, and a range of training and certification options.

Online trainings are available 24/7 to help you learn BIM tools on your own time.
