No two construction firms have the same requirements, and requirements often change, but Construction Technology Director Matthew Cordova knows what keeps his projects competitive. “Autodesk tech is our lifeblood here,” says Cordova of Hermanson Co., a Kent, Wash.- based firm specialising in mechanical systems construction, design-build engineering, lean fabrication and maintenance services. Far from being a static endeavour, adoption of Autodesk , Autodesk Build and other solutions is a dynamic process that requires regular evaluation, Cordova says.
Despite accelerated industry use of project management and associated software, demand for these solutions won’t slow down any time soon across architectural, engineering and construction sectors. Instead, demand will compound, especially as new tech proves it's worth at firms such as Hermanson, where Cordova ensures software is leveraged to boost performance and profitability. U.S. CAD is the firm’s technology partner, and provided it with reality-capture technology and production services including coordination and Revit modeling, as well as guidance on Autodesk construction technology solutions, such as Autodesk Build, training and implementation.

U.S. CAD worked with Cordova to ensure smooth transitions. Every workflow was reimagined without disrupting day-to-day operations including but not limited to existing workflows in BIM 360 and PlanGrid. Hermanson is now planning a similar transition with Autodesk Build. Read the full story to learn how U.S. CAD provided an easier transition to remote work, improved visualisation and coordination across departments, helped optimize clash detection and deviation analysis and improved their processes automation and accuracy.
With so many clear benefits, firms might consider a simple copy-and-paste approach to their technology strategies, but that would be a mistake. Partnering with a full stack partner like U.S. CAD will ensure that a strategic approach will be put in place for your firm’s success.
