Esri’s software, ArcGIS, is the most powerful mapping and analytics software in the world. We pioneer problem solving through GIS and recognise that the digital revolution in the construction industry, driven by BIM processes, requires geospatial and design data to be used together. As the global market leader in GIS we have partnered with Autodesk to put GIS and BIM at the centre of construction projects. Together we are driving smarter decisions, optimised designs, accelerated project approvals and reduced cost, to create smarter cities and a resilient infrastructure. 


Skanska, Costain and STRABAG Joint Venture

The Skanska, Costain and STRABAG Joint Venture (SCS JV) has improved collaboration on a multi-billion pound engineering project, by integrating 3D GIS and BIM models to create one of the most advanced 3D mapping systems in the UK.

Location and design working to address global challenges

Esri and Autodesk have joined forces to advance infrastructure planning and design,
building the bridge between BIM and GIS mapping technologies. The partnership
helps to connect "Make Anything" with "The Science of Where" through more tightly
integrated BIM and GIS workflows, enhancing how infrastructure assets are
planned, designed, built and operated.
