Autodesk has signed its largest contract to date in the Asia-Pacific region, an enterprise licensing agreement to provide software and services to the leading global engineering, architectural and environmental consulting firm GHD. Autodesk, the global leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, today announced that it has signed an enterprise licensing agreement with GHD, a global leader in engineering, architecture and environmental consulting for the provision of autodesk software and services. The value of the deal exceeds AUD 5 million, making it the largest order win to date for Autodesk in Asia Pacific. “We are very pleased to strengthen our long-standing relationship with GHD with this global agreement,” said Paul Arthur, Director of Sales, Autodesk Australia and New Zealand. “GHD is a true Australian success story that provides innovative, first-class design solutions across five continents. We are excited that autodesk software and services will enable GHD to support their progress towards 3D design solutions, while adapting them to future growth. In 2014, GHD merged with Canadian company Conestoga-Rovers & Associates in one of the largest private equity transactions in the engineering and environmental consulting sector, creating a combined company of 8,500 employees. At the time of the merger, Conestoga-Rovers employed about 3,000 people, mainly in North America and the United Kingdom, while GHD employed 5,500 people on five continents.  The combined company became the sixth largest engineering office in the world with total revenue of $1.5 billion.  Also in 2014, GHD acquired the brand and business of the Australian architectural firm Woodhead, which was later renamed GHD Woodhead.   This new agreement gives GHD access to 25 autodesk products and more than 1,000 licensed jobs worldwide. . . .
