Autodesk launches online construction professionals community called  ‘The Big Room’

Autodesk Construction Solutions recently announced the launch of The Big Room, an online community that enables construction professionals to network with others in the industry and connect directly with the Autodesk Construction Cloud team. The Big Room is an online hub dedicated explicitly for construction professionals to expand their network and knowledge with others in the construction industry.

The Big Room is open to all Autodesk customers, whether new to the Autodesk Construction Cloud portfolio or a seasoned power user of Assemble, BIM 360, BuildingConnected or PlanGrid. Informedinfrastructure quoted Allison Scott, director, construction thought leadership and customer Marketing at Autodesk as saying that in the AEC industry, a ‘Big Room’ is where the essential collaboration of the team happens.

It’s a space where project team members can congregate and work through day-to-day challenges, so they can plan for smooth execution and delivery. It’s also more than just a meeting place. It’s an environment in which collaborators can exchange ideas, break down silos, and solve problems. 

Brian Binkley, director of design at Gephart Electric said that the Big Room is his go-to place for a community of friends across the industry who are looking to exchange ideas from prefabrication to implementing new technologies and share experiences along the way.

Community members can ask questions to a broad network to learn how other teams handle tough challenges, discuss and learn about upcoming trends or technologies, and more. It’s a way to discover other construction professionals’ views, insights, and opinions and make vital connections in the process.

By joining The Big Room online community, members can:

  • Grow their network with construction professionals from all over the world: With over one-third of new opportunities being borne out of the simple casual conversation, The Big Room takes the face-to-face interactions of the job site and office to a new virtual platform.
  • Ask questions and learn more about the industry: Autodesk’s online community helps professionals broaden their horizons, gain input from other experts in their field, and gives members access to the latest construction articles to stay on top of updates and developments in the industry.
  • Harness the full potential of Autodesk Construction Cloud: With candid insights on how others are using Autodesk Construction Cloud, members can get tips and tricks from product experts to get the most out of their solutions and be the first to know about updates and new features.
  • Learn and connect with others anytime, anywhere: Whether at home, in the office or in the field, members can participate in discussions, read articles or complete surveys anytime, across any desktop and mobile device.
  • Gamifying the community: The Big Room also offers challenges that allow community members to compete with their peers, accumulate points and earn rewards like swag, memorable experiences and other exciting prizes.
