TL:DR – The Bridgit Bench and Autodesk Build integration allows contractors to automate the transfer key project data from Autodesk Build into Bridgit Bench. Our integration helps to centralize project pipeline tracking from bid to project completion. Other benefits of this integration include:
- Eliminate duplicate data entry and reduce errors
- Improve teamwork with a centralized, comprehensive view of project and resource demands
- Optimized project forecasts provide a clear view of the impact to your resource strategy
Depending on the software you’re using, forecasting the resource demands for construction projects can be incredibly challenging. Projects and resource allocations are often managed in a workforce planning solution (or spreadsheet), whereas project opportunities are tracked in a CRM tool. This increases your chances of having different data from one system to the next. This can result in contractors not fully understanding the impact their project opportunities will have on the larger workforce strategy.
On the other hand, well-integrated systems help to automate flow of key project data from one software to another. At Bridgit, we know the value of a tech stack that is speaking the same language and have built a number of integrations with the leading software being used in construction.

Autodesk Build is one of the leading applications being used in construction today. It helps track your upcoming projects, project opportunities, and bids. Bridgit Bench has built a low-code/no-code integration with Autodesk Build to pull key project information based on the current stage of your projects or project pursuits.
The benefits of integrating your resource planning with Autodesk Build
Projects are often won or lost in planning. An accurate, forward-looking project pipeline can help you distance yourself from your competitors. By integrating Autodesk Build with Bridgit Bench, you can automate the transfer of key project data each time a project is updated. Accurately forecasting your project demand also helps prevent your workforce planning from becoming reactive. When an opportunity or bid is likely to be won and pulled into Bridgit Bench, our integration helps to understand the impact awarded projects will have on the overall workforce strategy.
Some other key benefits of integrating Bridgit Bench with Autodesk Build include:
1. Better teamwork
With a well-integrated tech stack, contractors are able to create a centralized project and resource database. This database will provide a comprehensive view of your resource strategy, project pipeline, and be a valuable resource that your entire team can use to inform their work
2. Optimized project forecasting
Integrating Autodesk Build with Bridgit Bench helps you get started planning resources as soon as an opportunity is likely won. This helps to reduce any impact from last-minute changes and steers your workforce strategy in the right direction. Earlier forecasting also helps to understand the impact that each project opportunity will have on the larger workforce strategy.
3. Eliminate errors and duplicate data entry
By automating the flow of information, you can maximize your productive time by eliminating manual entries and cross-platform discrepancies.
A look at the Bridgit Bench and Autodesk Build integration
Autodesk Build helps you accurately track your upcoming projects, opportunities, and bids. By integrating with Bridgit Bench, you can automate the flow of project information into your workforce management system. Each time your projects are updated in Autodesk Build, those updates will automatically be reflected in Bridgit Bench.
Bridgit Bench customers are able to create custom integrations with Autodesk Build. This helps to pull project data only once an opportunity has been won, or has met a specific condition. For example, you may only want project data pulled into Bridgit Bench once the opportunity has a 25% win percentage. Contractors can then immediately understand the impact it will have on their team’s capacity and can start planning resources accordingly.
