Intelliwave Technologies has announced enhanced integration between SiteSense and Autodesk's BIM 360, enabling construction teams to gain critical insights on material status and availability.

The integration includes three new major benefits for SiteSense and Autodesk customers, keeping their field and office workflows connected in a single ecosystem:

  • Access critical project data in one place BIM 360 users can now add a SiteSense Partner Card to their BIM 360 Project Home dashboard
  • Connect inventory to engineering requirements SiteSense users can now attach critical project documentation from BIM 360 such as bills of materials, drawings and work packages to SiteSense Material Needs documents
  • More streamlined model reviews Navisworks users can sync SiteSense material inventory status into project models to allow for quick conditioning and visualization for upcoming execution tasks

Customers can maintain "exceptional project visibility" to make informed decisions efficiently and remain coordinated across their teams to reduce miscommunications, saving time and money.

"The Autodesk team continues to show construction projects the value of digitization starting from design and engineering, all the way through construction and handover, via a wide breadth of product offerings and capabilities," stated Dale Beard, CEO of Intelliwave. "We look forward to providing Autodesk users with accurate real-time data from SiteSense that will ultimately allow project teams to make better informed decisions throughout the project's lifecycle."

Intelliwave Technologies was formed in 2007 to provide new solutions in the construction industry to help increase "Time on Tools" for craft labor and improve site safety. The result was the creation of a revolutionary web and mobile-based software solution in one encompassing brand, SiteSense.

"With increasing digitization and complexity in design and construction, project teams must frequently tie together data and documents from multiple systems," stated James Cook, head of integrations at Autodesk Construction Solutions. "Connecting materials data from SiteSense to Navisworks models and BIM 360 construction management workflows helps all project stakeholders collaborate more effectively and make informed decisions throughout the project lifecycle."

Autodesk recently completed its $1 billion acquisition of Innovyze, which elevates its status as a leading global provider of end-to-end digital solutions - from design to operations - of water infrastructure, accelerates Autodesk’s digital twin strategy, and creates a clearer path to a more sustainable and digitized water industry.
