Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) , the leader in cloud-based design and engineering software, announced that the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT) is the latest state DOT in the U.S. to expand their use of Autodesk software to include Autodesk Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for road and highway design projects statewide.

“We are looking forward to implementing the Autodesk solutions,” said Alvin Dominguez, P.E., NMDOT Cabinet Secretary. “The New Mexico Department of Transportation expects to pay for the software within two years of full implementation through cost savings realized in the reduction of change orders. The use of 3D modeling capabilities will improve our public input on projects promoting positive customer relations and needed transparency throughout our project development process.”

Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions now accessible to the DOT include AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 software, Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler 2013 software, Autodesk BIM 360 cloud services, Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2013 software, AutoCAD Raster Design 2013 software, and AutoCAD 2013 software. Many of these products are available as part of the Autodesk Infrastructure Design Suite 2013.

The adoption of BIM processes is expected to yield a wide range of benefits for the NMDOT, including ease of doing “what if” analysis on every project regardless of size; ability to use intelligent 3D models and visualizations to help address environmental concerns and sensitivities; and the ability to tie materials quantities and cost estimates to design models, helping to automatically update reporting when model changes are made. Once fully deployed, the Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions will also aid in virtual construction, to allow for improved verification of construction methodologies; improved analysis; and simulations of construction sequencing to help manage existing traffic throughout the construction process. The NMDOT also expects to employ the Autodesk BIM solutions to support Automated Machine Guidance (AMG) site preparation to help accelerate overall construction by minimizing survey labor time and machine fuel consumption costs.
