The traditional method of conducting and responding to site inspections is long-winded and predominantly manual for builders. Using a paper or spreadsheet system to log defects or breakdowns is grossly inefficient and risky. It can involve duplicated data entry, wasted time and information errors. Plus, giving the right people real-time visibility over defects, snags or punchlists is difficult. Time lags and misinformation can have a costly affect on managing the project.
The other issue for builders is ensuring maintenance work during the DLP period is scheduled to meet compliance regulations. The risks posed by any maintenance delays can be substantial.
