eSUB partners with Autodesk

We’re seeing more and more tech positions pop up in the built industry over the past year. eSUB, for example, is currently hiring for three open tech positions.

eSUB, a project management solution for subcontractors, is now compatible with Autodesk BIM 360, which will give subcontractors direct access to BIM on the eSub platform. Wendy Rogers, eSUB President and CEO, said, “Subcontractors have a unique position in the process of construction in which a majority are not included in the design and pre-construction phase. Our partnership with Autodesk is designed to break down barriers and provide subcontractors with more tools to help them mitigate risk on projects.”
