PacXone for Building Design

Building Information Modeling (BIM) has changed how buildings, infrastructure, and utilities are planned, designed, built, and managed. With this in mind, BIM solutions require new insight into how business will deliver work to their clients. This presents new challenges to organizations as they adopt these new practices and technology.

PacXone is the ideal solution to help you implement and leverage the comprehensive CAD and Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools and workflows contained within the Autodesk Building Design Suite software.
