Digital construction is the application of data technology in the construction process to inform all aspects of a project from design to turnover. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is one of the most powerful digital tools that benefits every phase of the project lifecycle, including estimating, materials and labor management.
Using the AEC Collection for digital construction
The tools provided in the AEC Collection help construction teams utilize digital CAD and BIM workflows to move rapidly from design intent to construction. This data-driven approach mitigates risks early, avoids costly rework and drives innovation throughout the digital construction process.
See how Miller Electric Company uses the Architecture, Engineering & Construction Collection to design, model, and prefabricate complex electrical grid systems. This BIM-based approach has significantly reduced rework and waste, while improving quality and safety performance.
Digital construction solutions for every project phase
Autodesk offers integrated digital construction workflows across the entire project lifecycle. The AEC Collection helps streamline how data is collected and communicated with powerful BIM tools. The Autodesk Construction Cloud applies these models to key planning and building processes to enhance collaboration, decision-making and efficiency.
