Autodesk has fully reimagined the construction business for the digital age, enabling companies to address the most important challenges they face today while preparing for new ways of working in the future. The Autodesk Construction Solutions (ACS) portfolio connects the office, trailer and field so customers can move seamlessly through each phase of a building’s lifecycle — from design and preconstruction to construction, turnover and operations — with best-in-class solutions that include Assemble Systems, BIM 360, BuildingConnected and PlanGrid. General contractors, subcontractors, and owners around the world rely on ACS to win more work, enhance collaboration, speed decision-making, reduce risk, and improve overall project outcomes.

PlanGrid’s mobile-first solutions empower general contractors, subcontractors, owners and architects to provide fast, accurate information to the field. With unparalleled adoption by field workers, PlanGrid is used on projects as the single source of truth for all construction data — including drawings, photos, and other critical documents. As a result, critical workflows are streamlined, efficiency is improved and field teams can take on more work and get more done. PlanGrid is used on more 1.5 million construction projects in 100+ countries.

Technical Challenges

1) We have some serious technical challenges: we're storing huge data sets on mobile devices (construction blueprint files are very large). We have one of the largest repositories of blueprints in the world and we're working with SQLite databases that are upwards of 200-300 MB and s3 buckets in the petabytes.

2) We're using Machine Learning/AI to improve construction workflows, which presents a new set of hard technical problems for our engineers to work on.

3) Our software runs across four different platforms - web, Windows, Android and iOS. This presents interesting software development productivity and consistency challenges.
