    New Dropbox offerings for architecture, engineering and construction

    Slow adoption of new technologies is costing architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) businesses who are struggling with digital transformation and the shift from a 2D to a 3D world, according to Dropbox. Construction in particular is considered one of the least-digitised industries in the world, according to the company. For these reasons, Dropbox has further expanded its partnerships for AEC industries.

    Aconex

    This partnership provides integrated cloud-based collaboration solutions to the construction and engineering industries.

    Capabilities:

    • Manage draft versions of drawings on Dropbox before distributing the final versions to the construction teams via Aconex
    • Upload Dropbox drawings to the Aconex document registration before distributing the information according to specific project processes

    BulldozAIR

    A two-way sync with documents stored in Dropbox folders planned this year will give construction professionals a more streamlined process for project management.

    Capabilities:

    • Upload, save and update plans, documents and reports directly from Dropbox to BulldozAIR
    • Automatically save BulldozAIR site reports to Dropbox, keeping everything up-to-date and available to your teams, on-site and in the office

    Fieldwire

    Dropbox has partnered with Fieldwire, a centralised, mobile-first platform for construction crews to access and manage project documentation and communications.

    Capabilities:

    • Upload, access and modify the latest documents in Fieldware through a two-way integration with dropbox to ensure all team members and external collaborators are working off the same set of documents
    • Use Fieldware’s markup tools and task management capabilities to track on-site changes and assign work to team members. The set of plans – with redlines and progress photos – is then synced with Dropbox to share progress with the wider project team in real-time

    PlanGrid

    The integration with Dropbox lets you upload your plans directly to PlanGrid and back to Dropbox.

    • Save as-builts and snapshots back to Dropbox to access them on any device or platform
    • Build and collaborate from anywhere with real-time access to construction information generated from PlanGrid in Dropbox
    • File uploading integration with Dropbox ensures you are in sync
