Digital transformation isn’t a change that happens overnight. In fact, the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry has already experienced three waves of digital transformation, each building on the previous one.

The first wave, the movement to CAD, was driven by the widespread use of personal computers. The second, the movement to BIM (Building Information Modeling), was catalyzed by the global economic downturn of 2008 and the increase in BIM mandates from governments and private owners. And the most recent wave, cloud collaboration, has been dramatically accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Around the globe, AEC firms are shifting to a digital-first mindset, using BIM-based software in concert with technologies such as the Internet of Things, extended reality, and predictive analytics to reduce risk, grow their businesses, and improve sustainability. This e-book - to download here - highlights inspiring examples of digital transformation, projects that exemplify the convergence of BIM and multidisciplinary technologies. The projects are also past winners or nominees of the Autodesk Excellence Awards.
