The field app for Autodesk Build, Autodesk BIM Collaborate, and Autodesk Docs

PlanGrid Build is the best-in-class construction management app for Autodesk Construction Cloud. Simple automation and smart connections between tools make it easy for the more than 2.5 million construction projects across 143 countries to deliver quality projects on time and under budget.

PlanGrid Build brings Autodesk Build, Autodesk BIM Collaborate, Autodesk Docs, Revit, Navisworks, and AutoCAD to the field with collaboration tools and project data available from anywhere.

PlanGrid Build is made for the project team, like…

• the superintendent managing the quality of work on site
• the project manager tracking progress in real-time
• the BIM team identifying issues ahead of installation
• the foreman implementing new safety programs
• the architect doing a site walk
• and the owner, who uses data from project start to daily operations, to improve the efficiency of the next project.

Here’s how we do it.

+ Issues
Track issues, from design to handover, all in one place. Resolve issues faster by adding due dates, responsible parties, and easily reference photos, associated files, and RFIs.

+ Schedule
Keep projects on track with a centralized schedule. View the schedule by different timespans or filter by critical items, review predecessor and successor dependencies, and assess schedule suggestions, all from your mobile device.

+ Forms
Gather critical information with forms that adapt to project requirements. Build a comprehensive safety program or track daily checklists.

+ Assets
Easily manage the lifecycle of project assets from design through commissioning and handover. Assets are tracked, stored, and connected to other workflows in the app.

+ Meetings
Stay ahead of the next meeting by creating meetings or meeting agenda items. Link to references like issues, models, RFIs, or photos. Check the status of outstanding items and follow up, all from the field.

+ Sheets
Quickly access the latest drawings and shared plans with quick downloads and dynamic search. Compare, share, and markup sheets directly from the field to take the guesswork out of installation.

+ Models
Make critical decisions faster with access to 3D models in the field. View installation details and effortlessly navigate single or multi-trade models to build with confidence. (Supports RVT, DWG, NWC, IFC, NWD)

 + RFIs
Reduce the risk of data loss with seamless RFI management. Connect RFIs across the project lifecycle to cut down on duplicate work. Build flexibility into your workflows with the custom data fields.

+ Submittals
Keep all relevant submittal information on hand. With search, quickly find the necessary submittal to view progress and next steps. Add references to link submittals to workflows throughout the project.

+ Photos
Use photos to track progress and add references to issues, RFIs, schedule adjustments, and more. With autotags and location data, quickly find the photo you need.

We’ve made big moves to support a changing industry, and our customers agree:

"The ability to access 3D models from the field eliminates confusion and allows us to come to a real-time resolution for any issues onsite. This capability reduces risk and provides cost and time savings while ensuring we deliver high-quality projects to our clients."
Briana Mitchell, Project Manager, Boldt Company

"We have about 460 field employees and for them to access documents in real-time directly on their iPhone or their iPad is priceless."
Ken Mabe, Director of Field Operations, Eckardt Group

"I’m excited about being able to effortlessly tag a snippet from a drawing onto an RFI and immediately assign responsibilities and track how the project team interacts with a particular issue or RFI. The ability to track an issue’s progression in real-time helps us manage any roadblocks immediately."
Amy Kozlowski​, Project Manager,​ Herrero Builders

Great communications toolbox.

I find the use of this in the projects we do to be essential after the free trail period. We are a mechanical company traveling in several directions remodeling major retailers, so imagine all the blueprints I would have to carry. Maintaining the paper work is a breeze with several ways to implement. The instantaneous communication is one of the best thins about this. Documentation is simple with this cloud based system. The only problems I encountered were user error. The support staff at PlanGrid is really committed to helping me in any way possible. Took the time to make sure I knew how to successfully succeed at using this tool. Very Pleasant experience. If thinking about how to speed up the production and planning of a project, I highly recommend this application system. Good job guys.

Great option if team is fully committed, not for everyone

I am an HVAC contractor. I was was talked into using this by a builder I worked with in order to “play ball”. Initially, I was stoked about this. We took the training, and I thought this was the best thing I had seen! Then we started using it, and I quickly realized it’s only a timesaver if everyone on the team (builder side & fellow subs) use it, otherwise it is a management headache for the few dedicated people that are committed. I burned out after a couple projects, and now use something else that fits why I do at a lot lower cost, and is not tied into a closed ecosystem. This only works well if the entire team uses it, otherwise you are back to static PDF’s & chasing plan revisions. Some of the tools are great like the measuring tools. Others that are basic drawing tools for highlighting/markups are very outdated, limited & clunky to use. The worst part of this is the contract. If you decide you don’t want this anymore, make sure you give the required 30 day notice. When I inquired to how to cancel, I was told that I was stuck with it because I didn’t give the required notice, and was referred to the contract. Nice. Of course we are stuck with the contract, but when the response I receive is a “gotcha” it didn’t improve my outlook on their customer service

I like it, and I’m not ashamed.

PlanGrid has moved from something I casually asked if we would be using on a project to the standard- every project I am on is now on PlanGrid. Passing information between the field and the office has never been easier; fumbling around with full size prints is a thing of the past.

Is this app perfect? Not quite. Is it light years ahead of where we were even 2 years ago? Yes. Yes it is. If I could give a 4.5 star review I would, but all of my suggestions so far have at least gotten a response, many have been implemented. Thanks PlanGrid!
