AEC Collection / Infrastructure design

Deliver better infrastructure, together

Why civil engineers use the AEC Collection

  • Curved highway with light vehicle traffic surrounded by trees and rolling hills

    Make better design decisions

    Work with connected tools for concepting, design, analysis, and optimization to better meet design requirements and enhance client satisfaction.

  • A man and a woman in an office talk while viewing a model of a highway on laptop

    Streamline team coordination

    Adopt integrated workflows that enable design teams to work more efficiently across locations and disciplines, minimizing disruptions throughout the project.

  • A half-built concrete arc supported by scaffolding with a crane in the background

    Keep constructability top of mind

    Coordinate effectively from design to construction to reduce risks, minimize RFIs, and ensure constructability.
