To reduce inefficiencies and utilize new technologies, P1 is replacing stacks of paper drawings at many project sites with electronic plan documents that can be viewed on tablets in the field.
P1 has also integrated our SharePoint project management system with Bluebeam, a PDF solution that is used by construction, architecture and engineering firms to mark up and edit electronic documents. This allows P1 to provide up-to-date project information to the project foremen, at their fingertips.
Field personal view documents on their tablets and information is updated every 24 hours when the two systems synchronize. Foremen can also mark-up drawings to communicate changes to their crew and document “as built” conditions.
Having project information on tablets gives field personnel easy access at any location, on site. P1 has also built several BIM Boxes, or mobile technology centers, that project electronic documents on large TV screens. BIM Boxes are beginning to replace plan tables at many project sites.
