Business environment is changing l.jpg
Business environment is changing

  • Increase in design-build

  • Sustainable design –challenging conventional building practices

  • New creative business processes

  • Risk transfer from owner to AEC partner

Autodesk MEP Solutions

Your Business Issues?

  • High risk and liability due to errors and omissions in construction document set

  • Lost profits resulting from extensive rework and revisions

  • Poor drawingaccuracyand unreliable project information

  • Design workflow inaccurate and uncoordinated.

Keep costs down

“…helped us lift the information off the page and give it to the contractors in a form that they could understand - and price -properly”

”The clarity of the final product blew the client away.

…really helped the owner and building operator visualize exactly what we were doing.”
