Understanding the Project Lifecycle: Autodesk Build

This is the sixth in a series of 7 blogs that demonstrate DesignCell’s Project Lifecycle and the advanced tools used to accelerate projects and achieve quality with smoother projects, fewer changes, on-time, on-budget, and on-schedule. 

Throughout this blog series, we have emphasized the importance of alignment among multiple disciplines involved in a project. To achieve this, effective communication and information sharing between design and construction teams are vital, as they reduce duplication of efforts and save valuable time and resources for developers.

In Phase 6—Autodesk Build—Developers Benefit from the Transparency and Cross-Platform Open Communication of Having Everyone on the Same Interface 

To facilitate efficient project management and provide a centralized source of information accessible on both desktop and mobile devices, we rely on Autodesk Build. This versatile platform enables us to tailor workflows and fields to connect every member of the project team, regardless of their location—be it the office or the job site.

With the utilization of Autodesk Build, we can accomplish the following:

  1. Submit comprehensive Request for Information (RFI) and submittal reviews, complete with attachments, while ensuring they are assigned to the appropriate reviewers and collecting their feedback.
  2. Manage and process construction documents, including drawings and photos.
  3. Address queries and resolve issues promptly through the platform’s chat feature.
  4. Gain a quick overview of the project status, enabling us to make informed decisions about the next steps.
  5. Facilitate timely reviews.
  6. Consolidate all project information in one centralized location, readily accessible to the construction teams.
  7. Construction photos are uploaded weekly for all team members to view and track the progress.

In summary, Autodesk Build allows all project members access to the most up-to-date information precisely when they need it. This fosters improved collaboration, minimizes miscommunications and rework, and helps to keep the project on track.

In our next—and last—blog in this series, we will discuss other important parts of the project lifecycle, including fabrication, construction logistics, operations & maintenance, and renovation. Check back here for updates.
