Autodesk’s new headquarters for its AEC division

Autodesk eat it’s own dog food and will live in it too.

Autodesk is opening a 65,000 square-foot office building in Waltham, Mass., to serve as the new headquarters for its architecture, engineering & construction (AEC) division. This is where Revit is developed. (The office in Manchester will still be where it is where a lot of AutoCAD Architecture folks are located.)

The interior of the building is being designed and constructed with Autodesk's portfolio of products for building information modeling (BIM) and is the first project in New England to use the integrated project delivery (IPD) model, an innovative approach to design and construction that can accelerate project timeline and reduce costly errors.

The building is located at 1560 Trapelo Road in Waltham, Mass., and the interior was designed by architecture firm KlingStubbins and built by general contracting firm Tocci Building Companies. Using the Autodesk Revit platform for BIM, the firms were able to create coordinated, digital design information and documentation, and use that information to more accurately predict energy performance, as well as appearance and cost.

I think this is the building that one of the Google cars have taken a photo of.image

Or click here for Bird’s eye view on Live Search Maps. I think it now shows the old building though.
