Connect your tools, connect your team, with integrated engineering workflows that will push you ahead of the competition.

In today’s industry, competitive advantage isn’t achieved by just working faster or harder – it’s about working smarter. Projects are becoming increasingly more demanding; more complex buildings and structures built with more sustainable methods and resources, needing to be delivered to clients faster than ever. But it’s a challenge made easier than ever by making the move from CAD-based processes to a connected BIM environment.

BIM is the foundation of digital transformation in the AEC industry because manual, disconnected production workflows are prone to errors and omissions, leading to major budget, schedule, and cost overruns. Adopting BIM allows you to:

  • Save time & money that comes with costly rework by identifying errors earlier
  • Reduce risk & constructability issues down the line with better coordination & clash detection
  • Deliver better designs, faster, with shared data

According to the NBS national BIM Report, 86% of projects using BIM experienced cost savings from labor, collaboration, and materials, while 71% of BIM users report that BIM has made them more productive, and more profitable.

Integrated engineering workflows are making new levels of innovation and problem-solving possible. How?

Seamless Collaboration.

Connect your Revit models through the cloud using Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro, giving stakeholders visibility and access to accurate information whenever they need it. Models are always synchronized in real time so they’re always up to date, so teams can now anticipate and mitigate the potential impact of changes earlier on.

Design Optioneering.

The latest engineering tools in the Autodesk AEC Collection explore design options to find the best engineering solutions, using scripts that integrate your calculation spreadsheets, or using computational design that integrates your analysis tools with BIM. This eliminates repetitive tasks and rework, so you can fast-track load analysis and system design strategies to reach optimized design solutions faster.

Integrated Analysis.

With new features and functionality, Autodesk Revit can perform accurate MEP analysis calculations that are integrated with industry-leading analysis tools. Structural engineers can centralize their decision making in Revit, and engineering teams no longer need to manually manage design information in multiple applications or create separate analytical models. You get one centralized, data-rich model that cuts out redundant work and helps you avoid errors.

Design Automation.

Hours of tedious work spent on documentation, code checking, and interoperability can be reduced to minutes with automated modeling and documentation in Revit. Automate estimating, detailing, and fabrication tasks with discipline specific project templates and libraries.
