Abstract

This paper reviews the sustainability initiative enacted by a Phoenix General Contractor and how the initiative transformed the procedure used for document distribution on a 750,000 SF healthcare facility. The research identified how a simple workflow modification substantially improved the documentation management for the construction team, impact project quality and efficiency. The methodology used through a Building Information Modeling file sharing website enhanced document distribution and control, reducing costs and staffing typically associated with document control.
