Mortenson Construction Selects CTC as an Autodesk Partner and Custom Software Developer

CTC, Inc., a leading Autodesk Gold Partner in the Midwest region, has announced they are the Autodesk Partner for Mortenson Construction. CTC’s custom software development of Autodesk Revit add-ins takes projects through portions of the documentation process in less than 50% of the time that it previously took. Mortenson is able to use this time to focus on value-added activities such as validating accuracy and increasing review time with the project team to help eliminate production errors which could result in rework in the field.

“Right from the start, CTC reverse engineered previous fabrication models of ours and assumed nothing about our processes,” said Joel Jacobson, Integrated Construction Coordinator at Mortenson. “It was evident that the development team had a deep understanding of Revit and could make suggestions that help all of our teams. We made requests for the custom development of difficult functions and CTC delivered with confidence. The custom Revit add-in is decreasing the time spent on the drafting process and increasing the accuracy of the design, construction documents and communication between our teams.”

“We are excited to partner with a local company that can support all of our offices nationwide,” said Ricardo Khan, Director of Integrated Construction at Mortenson. “CTC has a proven track record of providing Autodesk customers the support needed and delivering results to their customers within the time requested. Our team members continue to learn from CTC’s educational resources and valuable conferences, like Midwest University. CTC is a terrific partner that helps us integrate Autodesk software in the most effective way.”

“Our involvement with the AEC industry and Autodesk customers has always included the desire to increase our customer’s productivity,” said Jeff Burbank, Product Manager for Revit Express Tools. “Mortenson is a great example of a CTC customer that has seen measurable results from using our Revit Express Tools. We look forward to future development of tools that help meet their needs and providing the support they count on.”

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
