Access, installation, and maintenance projects require more than physical grit. Logistics and project management skills require heavy lifting, too. Civil contractors want to win more bids, track progress, and analyze their spending in real time. 

Managing large construction projects requires quite a bit of juggling to stay on schedule, under budget, and in compliance with environmental regulations. Without the right support, PMs could drop the ball. 

Luckily, there are several construction project management tools on the market today to help PMs make informed, calculated, and cost-saving decisions. Here, we break down some of the most practical, intuitive, and revenue-building construction project management tools out there so you can hit the ground running on your next cost-savings initiative. 


1. Autodesk Construction Cloud

Autodesk construction takes all of the grunt work out of project management so you can focus on what matters most. With Autodesk, general contractors get ahead of bids so you can win more work and connect with your crews without cutting corners or going over budget. 

Whether in the field or in the office, teams collaborate via faster, more sustained technology adoption. Autodesk breaks down data silos so all teams are up to speed on the project status and can assess final project outcomes based on the same set of analytics. 

After identifying the best builders and vendors based on specific project requirements, it’s time for crews to roll up their sleeves. Autodesk’s project management capabilities allow PMs to streamline workflows and meet team needs more efficiently. 

Connect RFIs across the lifespan of the project to improve workflows and reduce the risk of data loss. Centralize meetings, link to meetings, and track project progress with markups. PMs can publish and access drawings from the field, collaborate with advanced markups, and auto-sync with mobile devices.
