Building Information Modeling For Infrastructure

Optimize your infrastructure design with BIM

OverviewCase StudiesResources

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent 3D model-based process that provides insight for creating and managing projects faster, more economically, and with less environmental impact.

Easily create designs with intelligent objects using a comprehensive portfolio of industry-leading software for infrastructure projects.

  • AutoCAD© Civil 3D© software is the BIM solution for infrastructure for civil engineers, drafters, designers, and technicians working on transportation, land development, and water projects.
  • Complementing these core BIM products is Autodesk's broad portfolio of applications that expand the power of BIM, including AutoCAD© software for documentation and professional drafting, Autodesk© Navisworks©, and Autodesk© 3ds Max© Design for visualization, simulation, and analysis of projects virtually and AutoCAD© Map 3D for effective infrastructure planning.
  • Autodesk design suites provide comprehensive industry solutions for both CAD and BIM workflows in one flexible, cost-effective package.

Profit from project insight through intelligent 3D. Autodesk solutions take full advantage of the rich information in the intelligent 3D models.

  • Quality
    • Easily create designs with intelligent objects.
    • Minimize errors and omissions regardless of how many times the design changes.
    • Simulate real-world appearance, performance, and cost.
  • Time and money
    • Find and reduce costly design conflicts virtually before construction begins.
    • Improve team collaboration and more easily manage project data across extended teams and external partners.
    • Win work and build stakeholder approval more easily using powerful visualizations.
  • Sustainability
    • Optimize the use of energy, water, materials, and land with integrated, accurate energy and environmental analysis.
    • Study multiple design alternatives earlier in the process to make better-informed decisions.
    • Monitor, manage, and improve performance using intelligent 3D models.

Realize benefits throughout the project lifecycle by enabling modeling, analysis, and collaboration at any point.

  • Projects are becoming increasingly complex. Manage and share data - such as design, materials, schedules, budgets, and compliance -- across diverse and distributed teams.
  • New technologies are changing what's possible. Autodesk BIM solutions take full advantage of powerful technical innovations, including reality capture, cloud computing, and mobile access.
  • BIM is rapidly transforming the global AEC industry. Autodesk is the recognized global BIM leader and, along with training, support, and a global community of experienced users, can help AEC professionals improve the way they work.
