BIM for Plant

Bring your projects online with integrated tools. Take advantage of comprehensive 3D models to enhance productivity, team collaboration and efficiencies throughout the project lifecycle.

Better plant design with BIM

Better plant design with BIM

Autodesk solutions supports plant professionals across the project lifecycle. Gain insights earlier in the process, enhance multi-disciplinary team co-ordination and minimise data loss across the project lifecycle. Deliver better BIM solutions using the Autodesk AEC Collection.

BIM across the project lifecycle

  • Accelerate design processes

    Use reality capture and 3D visualisations to accelerate modelling and get brownfield and turnkey projects off the ground more quickly.

  • Connect 3D design tools

    Create intelligent 3D models for site preparation, structural design and detailing, building design, piping and equipment layout. Enhance and integrate multi-disciplinary collaboration and minimise data loss across your project.

  • Integrate visualisation and analysis

    Conduct stress and flow analysis, and validate that your designs meet architectural and structural requirements. Optimise design quality and keep your project on schedule.

  • Improve project delivery

    Connect design and construction teams to improve construction co-ordination. Reduce risks and enhance maintenance and operations through a single model.
