New Construction Projects module

The new Construction Projects module provides instant access to ongoing construction documents to help facilities management (FM) professionals who are constantly challenged keeping track of information related to renovations and retrofits — especially closeouts.

When dealing with multiple renovation projects, facility teams are often last to receive closeouts. Without these documents, facility maintenance is basically guesswork, based on an often-confusing mess of as-builts drawings.

Jonathan Styrlund, vice president of Product Development, ARC Facilities, pointed out:

Facilities professionals can’t afford to wait months for construction closeouts. Operating without accurate information is risky, inefficient and costly. For the first time, facilities teams now have a single source of truth for accurate and current renovation project information. With Construction Projects, facility teams are assured that critical construction information is accessible where and when it is needed — accurate, accessible, and neatly organized.

How the module works

The solution will allow customers to organize, maintain and keep track of all construction drawings including specifications, RFI communications, submittals, and other project documentation. Project information is instantly accessible in an easy-to-use mobile application during construction.

Facility teams gain mobile access to building information during and after project completion and receive closeout packages at the end of projects.
