Traditional Approach: 6 couriered hardcopies Email / FTP sites Separate tracking/Log comparison Waste: Delivery time Lost or inadvertent deletion of Email Time spent tracking documents Working with the wrong file Confusing FTP sites
The Approach: Go digital The Technology: Utilize SharePoint to organize, distribute and track project documentation Sub Submit to Lewis Lewis Review Submit to Architect Arch Review Return to Lewis Lewis Return to Subcontractor Team Review Respond
The Result: Faster document review Reduction in Cost Report turnaround time Effective Meetings Less paper use Using Lewis SharePoint as a portal between the design team and contractor really helped to streamline the document exchange process. Given the compressed timeline of the GSA projects, I don't think we could have been able to meet the schedule without SharePoint. I would gladly use it again and would look for ways to implement a similar technology in my own organization. Whit Middlecoff, AIA GBD ARCHITECTS Incorporated
