Win More Work with Innovative Approaches to Project Proposals
Thursday, June 27th, 2013

How can you make your project proposals stand out in order to win work without losing time and money?

In this presentation, you’ll learn about new ways to quickly create more realistic proposals of design alternatives that demonstrate a better understanding of project needs, more clearly explain project designs, and help you win work.

Get to 30% Design Faster
Thursday, August 8th, 2013


Once you win an infrastructure project, how does your team provide owners, review agencies, clients and other stakeholders with a more solid understanding of your design intent?

This webcast presentation will present innovative approaches that show how you can easily combine 2D CAD, GIS, raster, and 3D models, enabling you to accelerate your infrastructure design process. It will also show how you can easily use rich visualizations to validate design decisions faster.

Get to “Yes” Faster with Agency and Community Stakeholders
Thursday, September 12th, 2013


Review agencies need to understand and approve projects before they can be built, but the approval process is often slow and linear. Non-technical public stakeholders, such as surrounding residents and business owners, struggle understanding 2D plans and their confusion can lead to expensive roadblocks.

Learn how you can use compelling simulations and animated 3D visualizations to better communicate project alternatives and community impact in a format that is more interactive and easily understood by agencies and non-technical audiences alike.

The Autodesk BIM Specialist Certification for Roads and Highways: A Quick Spin
Thursday, October 24th, 2013


Learn more about the Autodesk BIM Specialist Certification for Roads and Highways using the Autodesk® Infrastructure Design Suite 2014. We’ll give you information about:

• The authorized training guide

• The certification exam

• Learning objectives

• A BIM workflow for road and highway design

Using the training guide, you will learn how to employ a BIM process using the tools in the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite in order to more fully realize the benefits of this intelligent, model-based approach: better understanding of the project, improved accuracy and efficiency, and more agility to respond quickly to changes at anytime, anywhere.

Practical Workflows for the Civil Engineer
Thursday, December 12th, 2013


You are already creating rich 3D models, but how can you more fully leverage this model to enhance every phase of infrastructure project workflow?

This webcast will show you how to use your rich, 3D models to gain greater visibility into projects, develop deeper insights into constructability, and identify and resolve issues virtually before breaking ground.
