How Hermanson Company Leverages Technology to Expand Services and Streamline Operations

Customer Challenge

Hermanson Co. provides mechanical contracting services primarily serving government and institutional sectors. Matt Cordova, Construction Technology Director, at Hermanson Co. understands that adopting new technology solutions is a dynamic endeavor and states, "Technology is always evolving and companies such as ours have to grow into it."

With that in mind, Cordova is leading the adoption of Autodesk Build and transitioning from Autodesk BIM 360 and Autodesk PlanGrid. "Every workflow had to be reimagined without disrupting day-to-day operations, which was a monumental task," Cordova shares.

Project Goals

Hermanson Co.'s decision to transition to the enterprise solution of Autodesk Build from Autodesk BIM 360 and Autodesk PlanGrid was driven by the objective of creating a new hub that enables accurate model coordination for the firm, clients, and subs. In addition to that, able to improved and automated document management. Besides that, able to streamlined communication with the field team. Eventually, all mechanical, electrical and plumbing will be hosted in the Autodesk Build platform for modeling, coordination and document management.


Autodesk Build delivers multiple strategic upsides for Hermanson Co., including:

  • Easier remote working
  • Improved visualization and coordination
  • Optimized clash detection and deviation analysis
  • Automation and accuracy
  • Paperless sites

"Teaching is the most important part of implementing any software because if people don't know how to use it, they simply won't," Cordova asserts. "Talk about it with your team. Ask what they want to be able to do, understand how they work. That's how it becomes part of your base."

Business Outcome

Hermanson Co. relies on their partnership with U.S. CAD to ensure smooth transitions whenever they make decisions to implement new solutions. Existing workflows in Autodesk BIM 360 and Autodesk PlanGrid needed to be re-thought-out and adapted to the Autodesk Build platform. Hermanson Co understands that this kind of evolution takes time but is confident in the direction they're headed.

"There's never a cruise control button," Cordova says. "We're going to use a given solution, for example, for the next three years, but not just how it is today. You've always got to be tweaking the software so it works for you and things like security patches are current."


"You've got to believe in the software you're investing in," Cordova concludes. "Do your research, get buy-in from the team that will implement said software and, most importantly, get buy-in from the end-users. If your entire organization is pointed in the same direction and believes in what you're doing, it makes new tech adoption, training, and implementation a much smoother process."
