Jacobsen Construction’s standard process for starting a project often begins with rushing through creating the submittal log. Projects always come with tight deadlines, so while the submittal log they created was thorough, it left little time to analyze which items were truly needed or streamline the process.
More than half-way through a five-year project, a VP at Jacobsen began to question the process. Were all these submittals truly required? The team struggled to provide a clear answer on requirements and what was left to submit and felt as their database of submittals grew, their understanding of the actual requirements diminished. They needed a powerful tool that could help them take control of submittals and improve process efficiency.
Watch Mark Decker and two Jacobsen Project Engineers describe the benefits they’ve seen on individual projects and company-wide by using AutoSpecs and Closeout.
Mitigate Risk in a Bigger, Faster Project Environment
As the industry’s demand on general contractors increases due to larger projects, tighter schedules, and reduced budgets, the risk to the bottom line is greatly increased. This risk needs to be managed by the project teams who are being asked to do even more with even less. Pype provided a beneficial solution for Jacobsen to help mitigate that risk by saving time, improving quality of their submittal logs, as well as heightening the understanding of what was actually required on the project. Overall Pype delivered above and beyond what Jacobsen thought was available on the market.
