Introduction Founded as Bond Brothers in 1907, BOND delivers construction services to clients across the Northeastern United States. The firm specializes in construction management, particularly for the higher education and healthcare markets, and self‑performs work for the civil and utility market, with a focus on the power and energy sectors. BOND's commitment to quality has earned the loyalty of its customers, with more than 90 percent of its business coming from repeat clients. The firm decided to strengthen its ability to deliver quality projects—safely—on time and on budget by adding Autodesk ® BIM 360 ™ Field, a cloud‑based service, to its Building Information Modeling (BIM) process. BIM lets teams explore and coordinate projects using a model‑based process—before construction even begins. BIM 360 Field helps take the power of BIM into the field via mobile devices. Anthony Bond, a director with BOND, explains, "Autodesk BIM 360 Field gives us a faster and more powerful way to manage construction in the field as it happens. We started using BIM 360 Field on our construction management projects, and adapted it to our civil and utility projects, where it quickly became an invaluable part of the way we support quality and safety." The challenge BOND carries out a wide variety of civil and utility projects. A college may need a few hundred feet of new electrical distribution lines, or a regional utility might need work done on 20 miles of underground electrical lines. Work on older underground lines can be especially challenging because utilities often lack accurate documentation. BOND bases its work plans on the best information it can find, but its team needs to be prepared to work safely and enforce today's quality standards no matter the conditions they uncover.
