problem

The Problem

Throughout projects, snagging takes place to identify and correct defects. This involves collaborating with subcontractors and clients which means that information is often lost and miscommunicated.

 

solution

Solution with
basestone

With BaseStone, drawings are marked up digitally and snags (including photos) are recorded directly from the field. Snags are then assigned directly to subcontractors.

The Result

Snagging on BaseStone is proven to be 4 times faster than traditional paper-based methods. 

Tangible Benefits

Assuming engineers on the project snag once per week, there will be a productivity gain each month of 6 hours. 

Intangible Benefits

  • Reduced admin burden of printing drawings
  • Engineers are able to spend the additional time managing engineering issues on the project, helping to ensure that the project as a whole is not held up.
  • Reduces the risk of miscommunication as snags are all documented on the application along with photos, location and other details.
  • Audit trail.
  • Other benefits include reduced printing and paper costs which were not accounted for in this study but provide an additional saving and environmental benefit.
