FY22 IMPACT REPORT OVERVIEW ENERGY & MATERIALS HEALTH & RESILIENCE WORK & PROSPERITY GOVERNANCE APPENDIX 31 Construction resiliency Returning to the workplace Worker and user safety, wellness, and resilience are key priorities During the COVID-19 pandemic, health recommendations changed for Autodesk and our construction customers. The Construction how people moved as they returned to the workplace. TheInfraWorks Resiliency Playbook includes examples, insights, and actionable Mobility Simulation tool models people’s movement, bringing steps about how to be more resilient in construction, covering data-driven insight to physical distancing needs and more issues such as creating stronger technology and data programs efficiency of movement through transit centers such as airports and making teams, business models, and processes more resilient. and rail stations. Indoor air quality and proper ventilation Futureproofing steps the Playbook recommends include: make a significant difference for employee and customer safety. ® ● Focus on standards, identifying inconsistencies in With Autodesk CFD software, computational fluid dynamics company practices and finding opportunities to develop simulation can be used for thermal and flow analysis to identify standardized procedures. areas of risk and then explore multiple mitigation strategies ● Create a culture of innovation by actively promoting out-of- for occupant safety—before making any physical changes to the the-box thinking, for example through company-sanctioned building and HVAC systems. Dynamo and Generative Design events such as a hackathon focused on reducing waste from in Revit bring informed decision making to design exploration, design and construction processes. whether for designing for the safe arrangement of desks, the width or spacing of aisles, or other needs. As more people return ● Embrace industrialized construction by utilizing innovative to the workplace, these types of design decisions take on new building techniques such as design for manufacturing and significance. Our offerings can help create more resilient spaces assembly (DfMA) and prefabrication. that support teams working anywhere. ® Construction IQ, in Autodesk Build and Autodesk Construction Cloud platform products, applies machine learning to transform Learn more data into simple and actionable insights. The daily risk assessment Transportation infrastructure feature uses text recognition algorithms to sort through hundreds of data points to categorize and prioritize the highest risk projects, Transportation infrastructure is critical to the health of subcontractors, and issues. When used as an assistant to manage communities. Improving these built environments can improve risk in conjunction with current safety processes and real-world health outcomes and reduce health disparities among residents; experience, Construction IQ helps project teams identify and for example, planners can ensure that major roadways aren’t prioritize risk factors every day. constructed too close to schools and communities more at risk for asthma. Planning processes that include capabilities to predict movement of people—such as Mobility Simulation—can help reduce traffic congestion (and decrease associated GHG emissions Worker and user safety, and air pollution) and ensure safe and accessible evacuation routes in the event of natural disasters. wellness, and resilience are key priorities for Autodesk and our construction customers.
