Leave Your Paper Plans at the office
How is it that contemporary builders still bring huge sheafs of plans to site inspections? It makes today’s architects look less like Frank Gehry and more like Mike Brady. And carrying around large volumes of paper isn’t the only part of the inspection process that seems antiquated. By modern efficiency standards, the task of transcribing handwritten notes from plans to computer and then incorporating them into progress reports is also decades behind the times.
Enter the Construction Punchlist iPad app from Pathfinder.
Construction Punchlist takes full advantage of the iPad’s best features—its multitouch graphic interface and its capacity to process and transmit information—to save the building industry time, effort, and money. The app lets architects and building professionals bring all their plans (hundreds of pages of them) onsite in an easy-to-read rich media format they can scroll through, zoom in on and mark up. And because Construction Punchlist allows users to send the annotated plans electronically, reporting site details to owners, construction managers and contractors becomes more direct, more precise and faster.
Although plans are still the main way builders and architects communicate, little of the work is done by hand anymore. The computer has already simplified the design process to a tremendous extent. Pathfinder’s new iPad app brings this simplicity to the jobsite.
Construction Punchlist lets users annotate building plans and pass them along without transcription, without delay and ultimately, without compromise.
