A U.S. based, family-owned business, Mortenson Construction is a leading builder in North America. Mortenson’s services include design-build, real estate development, construction management, general contracting, EPC / BOP and project development for just some examples.
Efficiency is a key factor in what drives Mortenson Construction. Ricardo Khan, Mortenson’s Director of Integrated Construction, said, “Our goal was to enable our engineers to spend more time in the field and less time in the trailer re-inputting data they capture in the field.”
Mortenson Construction turned to Autodesk® BIM 360 software to manage its large construction projects. Khan said, “By using Autodesk® BIM 360 Field software, Mortenson Construction was able to optimize its internal processes and eliminate a significant amount of data entry redundancy by field engineers.”
The Challenge: Network File System Sync to Autodesk
With content in several Network File Systems, it challenging for Mortenson’s teams to keep BIM 360 Field’s project library current. Several steps were required to import files from multiple network drives into the BIM 360 Field project library. As a result, the overall processing workflow was slowed.
“We had no way to sync our content with BIM 360 Field and our data center in an easy or automated fashion,” said Mortenson Initiative Manager Neal Katorosz.
