Autodesk Plans Pype Acquisition to Transform Construction Workflow with AI

July 24, 2020 / Roopinder Tara

Autodesk has announced its plans to acquire Pype, a DC-area based startup that has created AI-based software to manage spec books and submittals, documents common to the construction industry. Submittals are composed of shop drawings, cut sheets and other data, in paper or digital form, and are shared between engineers, architects, contractors and architects.

Pype's main products, from what we can gather on their website, are:

  • AutoSpecs, which creates a draft submittal by reading specs, including action submittals, product data, closeout submittals, tests & inspections, and more.
  • CloseOut provides a portal for collecting closeout documents and compiles a “digital turnover package.”
