Free Virtual Event: Winning with Digital Preconstruction 

July 22, 2020 McKenzie Gregory

 On August 6th, Autodesk Construction Cloud is hosting our first-ever virtual event dedicated entirely to preconstruction.  

From 9 am (PT) – 12 pm (PT), you can attend live sessions covering:  

  • How to get the most out of digital opportunities in preconstruction  
  • Key insights from a survey to over 1,000 precon professionals  
  • Deep dives into model coordination, quantification, bidding, and qualification  
  • Recommendations from experts on how to successfully navigate the digital journey  

Save your spot now—it’s completely free to join, and the best part is you can enjoy each session from the comfort of your home office.  

Why Attend? 

We surveyed over 1,000 preconstruction professionals and found that technology has become core to how preconstruction teams operate, with 62% of respondents agreeing that technology leads to more successful outcomes. Yet, only 37% reported that they’re taking full advantage of the software currently available to them. How can preconstruction teams maximize the value of their digital solutions to work more efficiently and produce better outcomes? 

During this virtual event, industry experts and leading construction firms will dive into: 

  • Why digital preconstruction technology is key to becoming more resilient in today’s industry and improving project outcomes  
  • How preconstruction professionals can get more from the digital tools already available to them and successfully advocate for the ones they need to do their jobs more effectively  
  • The best ways to ensure lasting adoption of new tools within teams, across departments, and from external project partners 

Plus, we’ll share exclusive insights from our survey to over 1,000 preconstruction professionals!
