Using BIM in Construction

Use the intelligence of BIM (Building Information Modeling) to help make construction more efficient.

Improving how we build and operate

Autodesk construction software does more than automate tasks. It connects information and people, helping to increase productivity and open up new business opportunities.

  • Real-time BIM collaboration

    Real-time BIM collaboration

    Unify information and teams—in the office or the field—within a common data environment. BIM helps you deliver projects with improved efficiency and quality.

  • Insightful reality capture

    Insightful reality capture

    Gather data captured from drones, sensors, and laser scans. Use it in connected workflows for site visualization, engineering calculations, project progress tracking, safety analysis, and more.

  • Integrate technologies across disciplines

    Open technology integration

    Create apps and services to connect workflows using web components. Digitize the job site and integrate technology for designers, engineers, contractors, and owners.

  • Simplify building handover from construction to facilities management

    Simplified handover

    Connect BIM asset data from construction to facilities management, speeding handover. Building owners can better manage portfolios using BIM and the Internet of Things.
