Paper Is Out

A digital deluge is overtaking the commercial construction industry. Paper rolls of desktop-size blueprints are virtually extinct, pushed to pasture by powerful computers, sophisticated design applications and gigabytes of electronic files. Architectural renderings, along with the associated plumbing, ductwork, electrical and build-out plans are now drawn and revised electronically.

Ultra-sophisticated systems like fiber optics, networking cables and specialty gas lines must also be accommodated, further crowding already congested runs. Computer generated Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the new standard in collision detection and resolution. This vital technology works exclusively with data-intensive CAD files.

Meanwhile, construction site demands continue to intensify. Owners and financiers are mandating faster builds. Drawings are often just a step or two ahead of actual construction. Change orders present a never-ending stream of adjustments. Vast quantities of materials must be inventoried and staged, ready for use almost as soon as they are dropped. And site security presents an ever-present concern.

The challenge is enormous, requiring constant and immediate electronic communication between architects, engineers, superintendents, trade subs, and sometimes building officials, owners and financiers.
