Connect & Construct Chronicle OTC Edition 4 Wednesday, March 6, 2019 Meet Dustin DeVan, Head of BuildingConnected Dustin's View "It's an exciting time of growth and innovation for the ACS organization. As the newest member of the Autodesk family, we are excited about BuildingConnected's sales, success, and marketing teams getting more engaged, building relationships across the organization, and gaining valuable insights and learnings at OTC." Customer Success Highlight McCarthy McCarthy saves 8 Man-Hours per day using BIM 360 Design during their major Washington University construction project. This tremendous saving was realized by their use of BIM 360 and the help of a stellar account team. Let's let Alex Belkofer, VDC Director at McCarthy Building Companies, tell you all about it. "As a national builder, we know there are a lot of eyes on companies of our size and what we're doing. We are very passionate and intentional about what we put out there for the market to see. We're not putting stuff out there just because it's cool. We're truly trying to test the latest and greatest applications that we believe are most beneficial for us to deliver value to our clients at a higher level. On the Washington University East End Transformation Project, I looked at how we leveraged BIM 360 Design, Point Layout, and Navisworks. Without these tools and workflows, our BIM Execution on this project would not have been as effective." Congratulations to the account team led by Nancy Brown and Shane Vella - way to make our customers successful and realize the value of BIM 360! Image courtesy of McCarthy Building Companies, Inc.
