Yesterday, Autodesk Construction Cloud was thrilled to host our first-ever virtual event dedicated entirely to preconstruction.
Our sessions dove into:
- How to get the most out of digital opportunities in preconstruction
- Key insights from a survey to over 1,000 preconstruction professionals
- Deep dives into model coordination, quantification, bidding, and qualification
- Recommendations from experts on how to successfully navigate the digital journey
As Allison Scott said in her opening keynote, “Over the last several years, the use of construction technology to connect the way we work has grown exponentially.” This trend has been accelerated even further by the current working environment: according to a recent report released by Cisco, 58% of construction executives have adopted new technology due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 75% think these changes will help their companies emerge even stronger from the crisis.
In response to the pressing need for construction organizations to digitize their preconstruction workflows, our speakers shared strategies for choosing the right technology solutions, ensuring successful adoption at scale, and more. In case you missed it or want to share the content with the rest of your team, here are the recordings from every session.
