Building information modeling (BIM) meets field management with the latest integration to come from Autodesk. As a second act to the AEC software giant’s $875 million acquisition of construction management software firm PlanGrid last year, the companies on Tuesday announced the release of PlanGrid BIM, an integration with Autodesk’s Revit software.

The opportunity to visualize structures as rich, complete multidimensional models, according to the companies, will give project managers and field supervisors the opportunity to experience the proven benefits of BIM — i.e. identification of errors during preconstruction, clash detection, better communication of design — without having to set foot in the office.
