Using Autodesk Build to Improve the Construction Process
Wellspring Construction Group, LLC. has over 50 years of design and construction experience with projects ranging from simple remodels to large commercial facilities. Prior to implementing the Autodesk Construction Cloud, Wellspring’s construction process was handled primarily through email, and it was hard to access files in the field with a VPN. “Everything was done via email, and we used a shared drive for our files. There was so much juggling needed to perform follow-ups, create reports, and then ensure those people receive those reports and drawings,” said Sean Walters, Project Manager at Wellspring.

When Wellspring initially reached out to Autodesk, ATG was presented as an option for financing and training, which prompted them to move forward with the partnership. Soon after that, Wellspring and ATG began the training and implementation process. Kyle Lee, Sr. Construction Solutions Specialist, held an in-depth training on Autodesk Build for the Wellspring team: “Kyle’s presentation and enthusiasm were great. He took us step-by-step, answered all our questions and really made us feel confident in implementing Autodesk,” said Sean.
Wellspring’s construction process has greatly improved since implementing Autodesk Build. Now, tasks that involve reports, sheets, files, issues, cost management and more are even easier. “We are using Autodesk Build, and the field guys use PlanGrid for the mobile version. This allows everything to be done in one place, which is fantastic,” said Sean.
“If you want to keep everything organized and centralized, promote on-schedule project completion, and give access to subcontractors so they can follow along with photos, issues or RFIs, Autodesk Construction Cloud would be the way to go. In order to learn Autodesk and have good customer service on top of what Autodesk offers, ATG is the way to go.”
