Autodesk has today made waves at the American Institute of Architects’ 2014 conference by unveiling Project Skyscraper, a cloud-based tool that enables real-time collaboration between architects, engineers and contractors on the Autodesk 360 platform.
The software, set for a full commercial release at the tail-end of 2014, has been designed to address the inefficiencies that crop up in large projects with multiple stakeholders. Email, Autodesk argue, is no substitute to a proper collaborative solution.
Project Skyscraper will empower teams with the ability to search and provide feedback on project models on any device, meeting the needs of the modern construction industry.
In beta already, Skyscraper has reportedly had a good reception from its testers. Kyle Bernhardt, the head of cloud services at Autodesk, told In The Fold that “our production beta customers are already reaping those benefits, and we look forward to delivering an entirely new form of collaboration to our AEC customers.”
Also at AIA 2014 was the open-source Dynamo project, which Autodesk reiterated their commitment to.
