As you well know, one of the most important services a municipal engineering firm can provide to municipalities is construction inspection. The problem is how time-consuming this process tends to get. Traditionally, on-site staff is required to track project information on paper reports. Next comes transmitting the reports back to the office, when time permits. Preparing record drawings happens once the project is complete. The final step is locating valuable office space to store the as-built drawings. Then do it all over again for the next project. There must be a better process.
And there is, through eFieldReporting™. Developed by Ruekert/Mielke, this innovative tool provides your municipality with electronic documentation of all construction inspections, cutting down on process time and providing more accurate and comprehensive results. Best of all, you can easily access eFieldReporting™ to check the process of your projects daily, via an internet connection.
Our clients agree that the eFieldReporting™ process is more efficient than traditional inspection forms, saving time and money while providing their staff with a tool to manage projects with more information. We enjoy how the technology lets our construction review technicians complete digital working plans in the field, allowing information like photos to directly link to the corresponding construction report. By linking the project bid tab, standard drop down menus provide consistent data entry and quantity recording.
Some additional benefits that our communities have experienced from our construction inspection include:
- Accessible data
- On-site digital working plans
- Reduced record drawing costs
- Photos of key project components integrated directly into reports
- Database collection of attribute data for GIS incorporation
- Interactive record drawings with construction inspection reports embedded and linked to GIS utility features
Not only can eFieldReporting™ reduce record-drawing costs by 75%, it also provides more consistent reporting. Streamline your construction inspection process today with our higher quality, more efficient, data-performance system that helps you save time, money and energy.
