As a service to the transportation community, software company Pavia Systems has created a freely available database to connect transportation infrastructure community members with peers willing to share their experiences with the various e-Construction tools and methodologies.

Pavia offers its own e-Construction product for construction professionals in a software tool called HeadLight, designed for use by field inspectors to increase productivity and prevent losses. The company had itself collaborated with industry experts to develop its software solution.

A recent survey commissioned by the company indicated that 39 percent of industry professionals learn about new e-Construction management tools through word of mouth.

While word of mouth may suit industry insiders, many professionals exploring e-Construction for the first time don’t know where to turn with questions, the company said.

“This database allows transportation professionals to connect with experts who can assist them through the journey of e-Construction adoption,” he added.

The directory provides contact suggestions in the following categories:

  • 3D engineered models for construction;
  • Archiving EDMS;
  • Contract administration: budget tracking and projections;
  • Contract administration: schedules and projections;
  • E-Construction in general;
  • Electronic as-builts in the field;
  • Electronic contract specifications and special provisions;
  • Electronic document approvals;
  • Electronic document management system;
  • Electronic payroll verification;
  • Form automation;
  • Mobile devices, software and applications for field inspection and data collection; and
  • Pre-letting.

“There are a tremendous number of pathways an agency can take when implementing e-Construction initiatives,” explained Assistant State Construction Engineer Derek Case, PE, with the Washington State Department of Transportation.

“The ability to quickly identify and connect with peers who have gone before you allows you to focus your efforts and save considerable time you’d otherwise spend chasing your tail.”
