How to Reduce Preconstruction Costs with BIM Modeling

How to Reduce Preconstruction Costs with BIM Modeling

Contractors, designers, and decision-makers need to find ways to cut costs as building expenses rise. At the same time, you can’t cut costs while sacrificing quality. You also have to keep in mind that it would be both unwise and dangerous to try to conserve money while compromising the safety of your building. Considering these requirements, it may be a challenge to reduce expenses while simultaneously improving the systems and methods you use for construction. Building information modeling (BIM) from Autodesk has become a powerful solution to this problem. Due to the intricate, integrated design possibilities that BIM makes possible […]
The Power of the Cloud: Why Cloud Connectivity is Changing Construction

The Power of the Cloud: Why Cloud Connectivity is Changing Construction

In 2017, the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) released a report that gave the construction industry a call to action. In this report, McKinsey pointed out that through digital transformation, the construction industry stood to improve productivity by 50% to 60% with a $1.6 trillion increase per year in incremental global value. By 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic forced digital adoption across all industries, the construction industry was already largely prepared. The call to action from years prior had been heard by construction executives around the globe who saw the increasing benefits of transitioning to cloud-based digital construction solutions. Today, the […]

Autodesk Inventor: What Is It Used For?

There is an incredible amount of CAD software solutions on the market today. Each solution has some great strengths, and most of them are already well-known and established. Today, we will dive into one of the world’s more popular 3D CAD solutions, Autodesk Inventor. What Is Autodesk Inventor? A Brief History of Inventor With an initial release date of September 20, 1999, Inventor was Autodesk’s significant breakthrough into 3D modeling software. Before Inventor’s introduction, Autodesk did offer a 3D parametric tool called Designer. However, with SOLIDWORKS dominating the 3D CAD space at the time, Autodesk looked to “up the ante.” […]
