On Tuesday, November 20, 2018, Autodesk announced that it will acquire PlanGrid for $875 million. This acquisition will enable Autodesk to offer a more comprehensive, cloud-based construction platform. PlanGrid is a member of GBCA.
PlanGrid software lets general contractors, subcontractors and owners in commercial, heavy civil and other industries work together throughout the construction project lifecycle. PlanGrid software offers real-time collaboration, keeping the field and the office on the same page. It gives builders real-time access to project plans, punch lists, project tasks, progress photos, daily field reports, submittals and more.
We’re incredibly excited to be part of the Autodesk family and looking forward to this next stage of growth. This accelerates both companies’ ability to realize their vision of increasing productivity and help the construction industry deliver the housing and infrastructure this world needs.
From PlanGrid’s co-founder and CEO, Tracy Young:
This union brings together the robustness of Autodesk’s AEC offerings with PlanGrid’s ease-of-use for the field. We will be integrating workflows between PlanGrid, Autodesk Revit and the Autodesk BIM 360 platform, for a seamless flow of project information. In addition, PlanGrid will remain an open platform for interoperability with technology solutions.
