Enabling a Common Data Environment for Streamlined Communications

Customer Challenge

PowerHawke, Inc. specializes in commercial electrical distribution systems with a focus on safety, preventive maintenance and renewable energy. As a subsidiary of Phalcon Electric, PowerHawke is able to draw on a variety of expertise across eight different companies including Harlan Electric, McPhee Electric, J. E. Richards and Ravex. As the organization expanded both physically and virtually, PowerHawke required a system to connect field and office personnel to speed project delivery, streamline communications and consolidate project data.

Project Goals

Common data environments are becoming a necessity within the AECO industry as they allow internal staff and external stakeholders to collaborate throughout the project lifecycle. PowerHawke set their software goals accordingly, requesting a partner that could pair them with a platform for providing models to field personnel, creating daily status reports and storing communication records. This would ensure a single source of truth amongst project teams, office and field professionals, and clients.


Autodesk Solution Provider Microdesk began working with PowerHawke in 2016, initially supporting their onboarding of BIM 360 Glue. Over the past several years, the electrical contractor has added BIM 360 Docs, BIM 360 Coordinate and BIM 360 Field, culminating in the addition of Autodesk Construction Cloud’s BIM Collaborate Pro at the beginning of 2021. The combination of these powerful Autodesk tools and Microdesk’s technical expertise has allowed PowerHawke to connect project models to field personnel, coordinate clash-free models, enhance daily reports, and improve communication throughout the project lifecycle.

Business Outcome

With the common data environment in place and a variety of Microdesk-demonstrated software to leverage, PowerHawke’s project teams are more aligned. They are able to quickly communicate for better project decisions, correct project data, and collaborate anywhere at any time.


The construction project lifecycle involves several stakeholders from contractors and engineers to project managers and owners. Ensuring visualization into each phase is critical to successful project delivery, and forward-thinking firms like PowerHawke utilize every opportunity to streamline collaboration and coordination. Allowing Microdesk to showcase the versatility of leading Autodesk software like BIM 360 Field and BIM Collaborate Pro ensures PowerHawke will effectively maintain communication with clients, stakeholders and internal personnel from conception to handoff.
