New Hampshire-based Newforma, a provider of project information management (PIM) software for architects, engineers and contractors, has introduced a connector to Autodesk BIM 360 construction management software.

The latest release of the Newforma Project Center includes the anticipated connector for Autodesk BIM 360, construction management software that is part of Autodesk Construction Cloud, connecting data and workflows so users can collaborate more easily and drive productivity on their projects.

“The comprehensive view of the project record is so important,” said Greg Hempstead of Schmidt Associates, a full-service architecture and engineering firm. “Because there are different products focused on maximising collaboration in different ways, it’s nice to have a platform-agnostic way to see all these components together, including files from BIM 360, SharePoint Online and your different network folders. Using Newforma, our firm leadership and technical staff have the benefit of quick access to all information in a familiar environment.”

The connector allows project teams to access, share and work with information stored in both products and streamline RFI and submittal workflows between the design and construction teams.

“The pace of changes on construction projects and the need to communicate those changes across a wide range of stakeholders can make collaboration and information sharing difficult,” said James Cook, head of integrations at Autodesk Construction. “Integrating Newforma Project Center with Autodesk Construction Cloud’s collaboration unifies critical project information for customers so they can stay up to date and collaborate effectively across workflows.”

Slater Latour, chief marketing and product officer at Newforma, added: “Our continuing mission is to create solutions that deliver unprecedented value to the design and construction industry. The latest release of Newforma Project Center furthers our goal of bringing people, data and process together so our customers can provide better service to their clients and streamline project delivery.”

Newforma pioneered the PIM software category in 2004 and has been dedicated to improving project delivery ever since. Its software is used by more than 1500 architecture, engineering and construction companies around the world.
