Improve Handover with New, Easy-to-Use As-Built Export in Autodesk Build

During the handover phase at the end of a project, construction teams are often asked to provide as-built sets, which typically includes document drawings, RFI’s, and submittals. These as-builts can also be helpful during construction if teams need to onboard a new subcontractor or if a third party, like a local planning authority, requests this type of information in order to obtain a building certificate.

When it comes to putting together as-builts, it can be a very manual and time-consuming process. It’s difficult to track down and find all the related documents and versions needed and even harder to organize all of these files into easily consumable packages. Lastly, when you are doing all of this manually or in one-off exports, teams end up with a bunch of disconnected PDF’s making it harder for the recipient to find relevant information as they look through it (e.g. finding which sheet markups relate to which RFIs).

With the new As-Built Export tool in Autodesk Build, Project Admins can easily generate a set of as-builts including sheets, RFIs and submittals, then export for use in handover packages or other third party-requested deliverables. This feature will help eliminate time-consuming manual processes by:

Key Benefit of the As-Built Export Tool:

Instant accessibility to as-built information

With the ability to easily aggregate as-built information, teams no longer need to waste valuable time at the end of a project digging through files and drawings to find the latest version. 

Improved accuracy and speed of handover

With the ability to filter and automatically pull the right documents, teams will improve both the accuracy of information included in the handover package as well as the overall speed of getting handover done.

Improved owner satisfaction & repeat work 

When construction teams deliver as-builts with all the right information organized in an easily consumable way, owners are happier and more likely to do repeat work with the GC. Facilities teams also get what they need to confidently operate the building from Day One.

At the end of the day, we’re all working towards finding a better way to do what we already do. The As-Built Export Tool for Autodesk Build does exactly that. It’s a surefire way to make handover a much smoother process while enabling project stakeholders to easily supply important project information to third party requesters. If you’d like to request a demo, please contact us.

Please note for EMEA customers, this feature is a bit delayed and will be available by mid-September.
