Autodesk has revealed new capabilities for the Autodesk Construction Cloud and will expand its partner ecosystem, to provide construction teams new ways to connect their workflows on one platform.
A new schedule management tool will be added to Autodesk Build, which aims to further connect office and field teams to data across the construction lifecycle.
Project teams can now also integrate construction data from more than 200 partners on Autodesk Construction Cloud to streamline construction management in one centralised location.
Autodesk Construction Solutions Vice President of Product Development Sameer Merchant said in today’s increasingly digitised construction industry, connecting project stakeholders and data is critical for the collaboration and insights teams need for their competitive edge.
“Consolidating data from various project workflows into a common data environment gives team members access to the information they need when they need it and empowers project leaders to make informed decisions,” Merchant said.

“Since we launched Autodesk Construction Cloud, we have been focused on connecting office and field teams and enabling easier collaboration from a single source of truth; we have introduced nearly 250 product innovations just this year. Our newest developments are another milestone for connected construction.”
The schedule tool in Autodesk Build will help teams to centralise schedule management and work from the most up-to-date activities and milestones to keep their projects on track.
Office and field teams can instantly share digital schedules, collaborate on updates as they happen and link documents, sheets, photos, issues, assets, RFIs and submittals to their communications for reference. Teams can also filter and search their schedules and view them in calendar or chart formats to see activity status in real time.
Boldt Project Manager Bryan Nuckolls said distributing schedules across the team and ensuring everyone is on the same page is often time-consuming.
“Traditional and siloed schedule management requires updating spreadsheets, publishing them as PDFs and emailing them around to the team. By automating schedule communication in Autodesk Build, we save valuable project time and keep our team updated on the latest, while remaining in the same solution that houses our other critical project information,” Nuckolls said.
