Autodesk Introduces the Next Generation of Tools for a New Era of Infrastructure
Autodesk is uniquely positioned to strategically partner with our AEC customers in the public and private sectors, enabling them to drive a new era of infrastructure.
The breadth of our industry expertise makes Autodesk one of the very few companies that can bring architecture, manufacturing, and construction to bear for the infrastructure of the future – facilitating more interconnected vertical and horizontal infrastructure design processes, more efficient civil structures workflows, and improved project delivery. I believe we bring the whole of Autodesk to the whole of infrastructure challenges and opportunities.
Even before new public dollars began flowing to projects, the $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Law had already done something essential to its success: It confirmed the need for digital transformation to improve project delivery and save time and money by authorizing $100 million over five years for a digital design and construction program.
The stakes are high for states and local governments to rebuild and repair long-neglected infrastructure by delivering on-time, on-budget projects. Every minute saved, and every risk mitigated during design and engineering conserves taxpayer money, contributes to the well-being of communities, and minimizes environmental impact.
I am proud to share how Autodesk supports this once-in-a-generation infrastructure investment in the U.S., and the investments being made across the globe, with innovations across our entire portfolio to reshape the systems by which we move people and goods and improve the environments and communities in which we live. Innovations such as:
Model-based design that facilitates better design decisions.
Conceptual design capabilities that improve understanding of the impact of projects before a single shovel breaks ground.
Automated workflows that support more efficient design.
Cloud-based data-sharing that improves stakeholder collaboration.
Technology convergence between manufacturing and infrastructure to accelerate the industry shift toward prefabrication and industrialized construction.
To help deliver infrastructure projects with better outcomes, I am excited to share the 2023 releases of Autodesk® Civil 3D®, Autodesk® InfraWorks®, and Autodesk® ReCap™ Pro. Let’s walk through how these tools can be used to seize the opportunity of the infrastructure boom ahead.
