NASA Sustainability Base: Autodesk Casestudy

William McDonough + Partners, AECOM, and Swinerton Builders use Autodesk software to help develop NASA Ames Research Center's new Sustainability Base, one of the federal system’s greenest facilities.


Swinerton has fully adopted model-based coordination. In past projects, these bimonthly coordination meetings required members of the contracting team to gather in a conference room around a light table. "A single meeting could last up to five hours, not including travel time," says Gonzales. With help from Navisworks Manage, Swinerton and the subcontractors were able to conduct online coordination meetings that typically lasted no more than 90 minutes. "Use of Navisworks Manage is standard practice at Swinerton. It provides a tremendous competitive advantage."
