AECOM is the world’s premier infrastructure firm, delivering professional services throughout the project lifecycle – from planning, design, and engineering to consulting and construction management. A Fortune 500 firm, AECOM partners with clients in the public and private sectors to solve their most complex challenges and build legacies for generations to come. On projects spanning transportation, buildings, water, governments, energy and the environment, AECOM is driven to deliver a better world.
From the Marlins Stadium in Miami to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, AECOM continues to land these projects for their construction and design-build approach, leading to optimized collaboration, productivity, and efficiency. Regardless of location, one thing remains the same: AECOM relies on Autodesk Construction Cloud™ to help them design and build the future of sports entertainment.
With BIM, the AECOM team cost-effectively builds the project twice — once virtually and the second time physically. Utilizing modeling in the design phase, they continually update with 3D, 4D, 5D, and 6D information that’s accessible across project stakeholders. AECOM envisions the virtual model as the predictable result of the physical facility through the eyes and collaboration of their BIM process. They call it the ‘BIM continuum.’ This method between design and construction connects the physical and the virtual so that neither is out of sync.
“BIM driven projects are strategically planned, allowing for optimized collaboration, productivity, scheduling, and profitability,” says Russ Dalton, America’s BIM Director at AECOM. “We’re continually optimizing our use of technology to bring geometric and cost certainty to the building process to ensure cost and time savings.”
