In 2018, Autodesk made a huge splash in the construction industry by acquiring PlanGrid, BuildingConnected, and Assemble. In 2019, the company combined all of those acquisitions and their native BIM 360 application in Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC). Now, Autodesk is on the move again with a new acquisition and investments into a couple of other construction tech companies.
Announced yesterday, Autodesk has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Pype, a construction technology that uses artificial intelligence to simplify submittal logs, the closeout process, and project turnover. Last week, the company also announced strategic investments into Bridgit and Factory OS.
