Arora Engineers uses Autodesk Docs to Collaborate on Delivery of JFK Terminal 8 Renovation
Arora Engineers is a revolutionary firm that delivers MEP design and pre-construction services by emphasizing the technology and processes that connect systems infrastructure, improve operations and longevity and make life safer and easier for those who use it. In this capacity, Arora Engineers was asked to provide its services for the Expansion and Renovation of the JFK Airport Terminal 8 project. To do this, Arora planned on using Autodesk Revit and other BIM technology tools, but it was also looking to optimize the process of collaborating with the other trades involved in the project.
Arora Engineers needed to find a tool that enabled it to work collaboratively with architects, builders, and other trades. It needed to be able to allow for the resolution of RFI’s, issues, and clash detection. The ideal solution would be inexpensive, as there was no additional funding for it, and be cloud-based so as to not require investment in any additional hardware technology. Additionally, it had to be easy to learn and use, as there was no appetite from the team for a steep learning curve.
Arora Engineers explored the feature set of Autodesk Docs and found that it works seamlessly with Revit and AutoCAD, the two main design tools used in the project. Arora Engineers found that Autodesk Docs’ cloud-based environment allowed the entire team to manage its files without making any significant changes to the project’s structure. Using Autodesk Docs allowed the company to quickly resolve RFI's and issues. It was the perfect technological solution to address the workflow needs of the project.
By implementing Autodesk Docs’ project and file management solutions, the company was able to resolve the project’s challenges more quickly and efficiently, in collaboration with all other trades. This was nearly invaluable for such an aggressive design-build project schedule that seems to be more the rule than exception these days.
Arora Engineers uses Autodesk software and works closely with Microsol Resources for insights, licenses, and technical support. Autodesk Docs, AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks and Dynamo proved to be ideal tools for Arora Engineers. Autodesk Docs is now used in several other projects where collaboration with other firms is essential.
