Pros and Cons of Electronic Communication on a Construction Project

Understand the important elements to consider when establishing and maintaining an electronic document management system.

A successful line of communication between the shareholder and design and construction participants on a project is an essential element in ensuring that projects are completed on time and within pre-defined cost parameters. Merriam-Webster defines communication as a process by which information is exchanged between individuals through a common system of symbols, signs or behaviors. In the design and construction process, this includes the exchanging of contract documents, drawings and specifications prepared to specify the scope of work and party contractual responsibilities, and the exchange of information that is developed throughout the design and construction process to either clarify expectations or document performance. The evolution of digital and electronic communication over the past 20 years has changed the manner in which construction project documentation is prepared, distributed and stored. This material will focus on addressing important elements to consider when establishing and maintaining an electronic document management system for use on your project.
