Autodesk BIM 360 is used as a CDE (common data environment) as a central repository where the construction project information is situated. It is the single source of information for the project, and is used to collect, manage, collaborate, and share project information with the project team. By integrating this with the Novorender open APIs, all this information will be automatically synced daily. The relevant files from BIM360 (left hand side of the image below) can easily be selected into Novorender (Right hand side of the image below). This streamlines systems and processes used within and between the Bane NOR and all sub-contractors.

When the CDE is updated throughout the project lifecycle, Novorender will make sure the participants always are looking at the latest versions. This will enhance collaboration and increase security and the auditability of data.
