Customer Challenge

Your profile differentiates you and provides critical information to customers about your expertise. This subsection is very important in that it is what customers see in search results. If approved, you will have the opportunity to finesse this after approval.

Rajat Buildtech, established in 2005, is a construction company and a part of the Rajat Group of Companies, which has been catering to various industries since 1975 in Raipur, Chhattisgarh. To achieve its vision of creating significant landmarks and contributing towards urban infrastructure development in the newly formed state, Rajat Buildtech used to employ separate teams for designing, planning, and budgeting.

Besides, most of their construction processes were manual and paper based. The teams working on the project would design traditionally through 2D drawings. This often resulted in multiple errors and improper collaboration between various design teams, which would often creep into the next stage without being noticeable right towards the end, resulting in multiple redesigns, adding to the costs and timelines.

Moreover, due to the mostly manual processes, the team at Rajat Buildtech could see only one drawing at a time, which would demand a longer timeframe for preconstruction planning. The team would often need to go the site to manually monitor each stage of the preconstruction work. On the budgeting front, manual take offs were used to calculate estimates of the construction budgets at various stages.

To solve these challenges, 5D VDC Services LLP used BIM 360 and ASSEMBLE software modules enabled by Autodesk to facilitate project delivery for the Rajat Buildtech Group to solve the challenge of manual preconstruction planning and design. 5D VDC Services, a services and software training partner with Autodesk India, is a digital-first construction consultancy that aims at delivering the promise of Virtual Design and Construction across all stages of construction life cycle. The team has emerged as industry disruptors, innovators, thought leaders, and technology evangelists, harnessing the full potential of BIM across the construction spectrum.

  • Removing guesswork and planning incompetence to get at a workable schedule.
  • For speed, accuracy, and convenience, the entire pre-construction process to be switched from manual to BIM and VDC in a matter of weeks.
  • Putting in place clash avoidance and detection mechanisms to avoid conflicts and rework in later stages
  • Enhancing decision-making and control of the design workflow using a centralized database and inch-to-inch detailing
  • Utilizing efficient project management systems to monitor adjustments, modifications, and implementation of costs in real-time, as well as key performance indicators like:
    • Percentage of project tasks completed on time
    • Percentage of unfinished jobs or missed deadlines for projects
    • Value as intended and price as incurred
    • ROI, for example, and so forth.


Describe the Autodesk Solution(s) and Provider Services delivered that most impacted the stated project goals. Best practice to describe their specific solution and service benefits (up to 3) that most favorably impacted the stated project goals.

5D VDC, a services and software training partner with Autodesk India, deployed Autodesk’s BIM 360 and ASSEMBLE software modules for delivering and achieving the client’s stated objectives and building a centralized reservoir of construction data.

BIM 360 is a construction management software enabling cloud-based design collaboration and coordination for planning and design teams, facilitating project delivery from early-stage design through to construction. Autodesk Assemble helps make any 3D-model based design construction-ready by conditioning and connecting BIM data to design reviews, estimating, scheduling, and work-in-place tracking.
