Introducing… Vizzn’s Drawing Overlay Feature that Enables Estimators to Literally “Walk the Drawings”
Estimating in heavy civil construction is not for the faint of heart; it is a high risk, high reward endeavor. A single estimating error can either send your profits out the window or inadvertently hand a lucrative contract over to the competition.
Think of this crazy scenario …. An estimator goes to a construction site with a paper copy of the drawings under their arm. Upon arriving, the estimator attempts to translate in their minds-eye how these drawings and the actual site itself correlate. Imagining the drawings into reality is a very difficult task for even the cleverest of estimators. An error in this imagining exercise can be very costly; misinterpreting the proximity of structures, environmental challenges, the need for removal and reconstruction of roads and sidewalks, conflicts with overhead powerlines, or misunderstanding site boundaries, are just a few common estimating mistakes waiting to happen.
Bidding like this today is not only dangerous but it is also unnecessary thanks to Vizzn Inc., and its unique and innovative solution called “Walk the Drawings”. With this game changing feature, an estimator can open any set of drawings on their phone and literally walk those same electronic drawings as they actually walk the physical site itself. In other words, as the estimator physically moves across the construction site in the real world, their electronic icon (avatar) moves across the corresponding electronic drawings on their phone. Now the estimator can see that the tie-ins are under existing asphalt! Also, while walking the drawings, the estimator can label any challenges by simply clicking their avatar and it will post that geo-stamped location complete with corresponding notes and photos straight to the drawings for later review and analysis. Vizzn is the only software providing this unique technology for the heavy construction industry.
Vizzn Inc. has extended the Walk the Drawings mapping feature to enable site leaders to optimally design their site layouts for optimal construction efficiency. For example, a Vizzn user can label the best locations for haul roads, access points, equipment laydown areas, material storage spots and any other job details that might improve site efficiency. Placing these details on the drawings translates into actual placement in the field and at those exactly identified locations. This mapping feature can also be used to documenting extras billings, quality control or environmental challenges. And these are just a few of the many possibilities available with by this technology.
