If you’ve ever stood on a steel beam high above a project site, needed to check your blueprints, and wondered if there was a better, faster way to access them instead of heading back to the trailer, you aren’t alone—and there is a better way.

Recently, Box announced two-times growth in year-over-year sales in the AEC (architecture, engineering services, and construction) industry. Companies like Atkins, Braemore Properties, CORE Construction, C.W. Driver, Dunn Building Co., Intergraph, Layton Construction, Lennar Corp., Mercury Engineering, The Weitz Co., and Webcor Builders have joined our growing roster of AEC customers that are looking to transform their companies.

Box gives them a simple, powerful way to centralize content, revisions, and comments, and make that information available anywhere, anytime—using any mobile device. No more shimmying down a steel beam back to the trailer.

Box also offers several key partner applications that make it easier for construction professionals to deliver projects on time and on budget, despite limited manpower, accelerated schedules, and limited or conflicting information.

One of these applications is from Gehry Technologies,, Los Angeles, Calif., the innovative technology development and consulting company connected to renowned architect Frank Gehry. Gehry Technologies is partnering with Box to make information-rich BIM 3D models available to everyone on a project—from the owner to subcontractors—via their AEC Toolkit. Users can now see a high level of detail within the BIM 3D models, allowing them to provide feedback and make informed decisions, regardless of platform or BIM 3D authoring tool, and without any software required.

Box has released a group of preferred Box OneCloud apps for AEC, which enables more accurate and efficient workflows. The Box OneCloud apps that are used the most by AEC firms are:

AutoCAD WS for viewing, editing, and sharing AutoCAD drawings with anyone, anywhere using a mobile device
FotoIn for embedding comments and information from the field straight into photos
PlanGrid for easily managing blueprints on an iPad
Procore for a centralized project portal to track and manage construction project information
PunchList for creating a report of issues or discussion items for any project
