Today’s construction projects are more complex than ever, requiring project teams to assess a myriad of project requirements. With specification documents exceeding thousands of pages, generating submittal logs is a tedious and time-consuming process that can delay the start of a project by weeks. As any construction project management team knows, manually creating and inputting submittal logs is also a process prone to error.
To the relief of construction project teams everywhere, there is now a way to automatically generate submittal logs. A new integration with Autodesk BIM 360 allows them to then be seamlessly imported and managed within BIM 360 Docs.
Streamline Construction Project Management with Pype
Pype's software allows users to generate detailed submittal logs in a matter of minutes
Pype makes construction software that enables project teams to start projects faster and finish stronger. Pype’s AutoSpecs software allows users to generate detailed submittal logs in a matter of minutes, not weeks. Aside from getting projects started much more quickly, AutoSpecs helps improve accuracy, ensure contract compliance, eliminate human data entry error, improve the accuracy of bids in preconstruction, and put your team to better use.
AutoSpecs’ powerful algorithms extract, validate, and categorize project requirements to generate submittal items. The patented software uses machine learning to identify action, information, closeout submittal, quality assurance, quality control, mock-up, test and inspection requirements and display them in an easy-to-understand format. Once generated, it also keeps track of spec changes between versions when you upload new specs, automatically identifying and updating the changes.
In addition to AutoSpecs, Pype also offers Closeout, software that simplifies and tracks the closeout process. Pype eliminates the pain of creating accurate and comprehensive submittal registers at the beginning of a project, and tracking and compiling hundreds of closeout submittals during closeout.
Pype AutoSpecs and BIM 360 Docs Integration
The integration between Pype and BIM 360 eliminates the tedious process of entering submittal items manually
The new integration between Pype AutoSpecs and Autodesk’s BIM 360 Docs eliminates the tedious process of entering submittal items in BIM 360 Docs. Users can generate a submittal register in minutes, import it directly into BIM 360, and seamlessly maintain and manage the submittal register via Pype and BIM 360.
When an owner or architect provides a spec book to the general contractor, it’s usually a massive PDF document. Pype can easily narrow down spec sections to provide individual sections that help with bid and scope management with subcontractors. Those spec sections and requirements overviews are then easily exportable into BIM 360.
“The Pype Autospecs platform helps project teams using BIM 360 to identify not only all submittal requirements but all Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) items required from the project spec. You can now manage your spec driven QA/QC contractual obligations in BIM 360 with our integration."
