Construction sequencing helps streamline the entire construction process by considering resources, spatial constraints, and an organized sequence of engineering, design, and operations activities before a project begins. The construction sequence model can identify potential conflicts up-front and precisely calculate how to complete a construction project on-time and within budget.
Simulations for building construction sequencing
Use animated schedule simulations to improve accuracy and predictability of construction sequencing. Use 3D coordination and 4D simulations to visualize important construction activities—including equipment routing, material storage, and site constraints.
Construction sequencing for infrastructure projects
Construction logistics, planning, and sequencing are critical components in streamlining the construction process and achieving cost-saving efficiencies. See how pioneers in civil infrastructure optimized their project plans on complex road, bridge, and tunnel projects using construction sequencing software in the AEC Collection.
Using the AEC Collection for construction sequencing
Construction sequencing has never been more dynamic with the AEC Collection from Autodesk. Use powerful BIM tools to connect concepting, design, analysis, and optimization. Seamlessly coordinate teams, reduce risks, ensure constructability, and more.
See how a best-in-class construction company was able to accelerate construction planning by 88 percent on a high-profile $200 million construction project.
Construction sequencing frequently asked questions (FAQs)
Who can the AEC Collection help with other steps of construction project planning?
Civil engineers, architects, structural engineers, and MEP engineers appreciate the utility of the AEC Collection. It streamlines the construction sequencing process, automates documentation, drives efficiency into workflow, and improves outcomes.
How will the AEC Collection save time for the construction sequencing process?
The AEC Collection’s project sequencing software helps reduce project cycle time and eliminate construction bottlenecks. Data accessibility streamlines communications between teams and stakeholders. Plus, modeling allows issues to be identified and resolved before construction starts.
What features in the collection will help with construction sequencing simulations & animations?
Multiple software solutions in the AEC Collection easily handle pre-visualization, layout, modeling, animation, and rendering tasks that are important in construction sequencing simulations. Animate Revit model objects against your project timeline with Navisworks; create construction site layouts, traffic simulations, and visualizations using InfraWorks and Civil 3D; and communicate with high-end visualizations with 3ds Max.
What construction scheduling methods are supported by the AEC Collection?
The AEC Collection supports all major construction scheduling methods. The software provided streamlines the critical path method, making it easy to model and analyze each project stage before it begins. The software also fully supports resource-oriented scheduling by providing a clear view of all project components, making it easier to apply available resources. In addition, the software also allows you to create and update visual project schedules throughout the entire project, providing all stakeholders a clear view.
