Contractors and Construction Documentation

Contractors know that documentation requirements are changing how a project is built, managed and passed off to the owner.  The demands for accurate construction documentation are rigorous and getting more so.  Even if the ownership group and specification overlooks the construction documentation – a sophisticated contractor cannot ignore that we live in a litigious culture and a builder/contractor are all to often the target.

e-Builts benefits to our contractor clients include:

  • An inexpensive, dated and indexed series of photographs of all areas of a project.
  • Photographs are web accessible 24 hours from our jobsite visit.
  • The interface is an easy to understand and navigate 2-D plan showing photograph or scan data locations.
  • High Resolution allows for viewing any detail to 1/8” in any location/photograph.
  • Our photographs are measurable.
  • Photographs can be used for:
  • Progress Verification
  • Quality Assurance
  • Quality Control
  • Specification and Code Compliance
  • Supplemental Inspection Requirements
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Insurance Claim Verification
  • The service has no ongoing cost.  Once provided to the contractor the data can be hosted on a server, saved on a disc or accessed via the web.
  • Changes in scope can be surgical with the real condition of hidden components accessible on the photographs.
  • Enhanced communication – within 24 hours of jobsite photographs the entire construction team can view, zoom-in and verify.

  • Close-out packages – We have seen pallets of paper based close-out binders that are now being replaced with all of the same information called up from the e-builts photograph at the click of your mouse.
  • Contractor taken photographs or job records can be inserted into our interface to allow enhanced management or project record in perpetuity.
