Dallas-based general contractor Rogers O’Brien (RO) came across inconsistencies, inaccuracies, and delays in creating their submittal logs. Spending valuable time and resources on a tedious task was usually relegated to entry level employees, who would need constant oversight and continued training to prevent mistakes. Then, once the log was created, it lacked uniformity and consistency, resulting in even more time lost and difficulties in deciphering it.
Todd Wynne, Director of Applied Technology, and Superintendent Jonathon Grammer, both having created submittal logs themselves, knew it would be difficult to find a solution. They started by looking to standardize their process and eliminate inconsistencies, but were at a loss when it came to addressing the time and human investment. That’s when they found Pype AutoSpecs.
Results from Pype
Once AutoSpecs was fully implemented and became part of the standard submittal log procedure, RO saw their time invested solely in submittal creation drop to just a fifth of what it was previously. With these improvements in specification and project manual processing the RO team has enjoyed more accurate project submittals in a fraction of the time due to the high level of accuracy built into the Pype algorithm. The data available in Pype provided team members with information they could trust, in the end allowing them to execute more efficiently.
