Why Construction Teams Use the AEC Collection

Improve constructability using an integrated set of BIM and CAD tools.

Mitigate risks early

Use a single document management platform across design and construction to better control quality, cost, and schedule.

Avoid costly rework

Use powerful 3D coordination tools that detect clashes, errors, and omissions.

Drive innovation

Push your projects further with confidence using schedule and cost simulation.

Other Highlights

BIM for virtual design and construction

Construction is a high-risk industry. Complex, manual processes are prone to errors that result in budget and schedule overruns. Learn how using BIM-based VDC workflows in preconstruction leads to more precise and predictable outcomes.

Benefits of BIM for trade contractors

The industry is changing rapidly, and specialty trade contractors have the added pressure to deliver high-quality work faster. Learn the top reasons why mechanical and HVAC contractors say BIM is an essential part of adapting to new expectations.
