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.
The NMDOT plans to start training on the Autodesk BIM software in early 2013, with application on projects expected to begin in mid-2013. Recently it used Autodesk Infrastructure Modeler, a solution that helps engineers and planning professionals create, evaluate, and communicate visually rich infrastructure proposals for more informed decision-making, to generate 3D visualizations for the Cambray Bridge replacement and I-10 roadway rehabilitation projects.“New Mexico’s decision to standardize on Autodesk solutions adds them to a growing list of major U.S. departments of transportation, such as Caltrans, that have made the move to Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions,” said Lisa Campbell, Autodesk vice president of engineering and infrastructure. “We’re seeing rapidly expanding interest within the transportation community for the Autodesk BIM for infrastructure solutions, which help designers and civil engineers in both consulting firms and government agencies plan, design, build and manage more sustainable infrastructure.” About the New Mexico Department of Transportation The New Mexico Department of Transportation is comprised of the General Office in Santa Fe, three Regional Design Offices, and six district offices, which include 82 maintenance yards and more than 20 construction offices.
