Surprises always turn up when walls get torn down at construction sites. The unknown or unexpected can result in countless changes to plans as projects get underway. The larger the site, the greater the number of red-line changes. Without quick approvals of these red-lines, construction projects can be delayed and costs can rise.

Prepare for when plans change

Getting all the red-line changes to the main office is time-critical — for the approval of the modifications, to assign designers to update the CAD as-built plans, or to keep a record. To expedite the process, construction experts rely on the Colortrac scanner to capture and share as-built changes as they occur in the field. With a simple press of a button, the red-lines are captured with amazing accuracy. The SmartLF Scan! scanners come with presets and can accommodate a range of document sizes up to 36 inches wide.

Keep the right tools within reach

The Colortrac scanner can be taken anywhere for on-site scanning. Technical drawings can be scanned in seconds and emailed back to the office for quick approval and revision.

By keeping the SmartLF Scan! on site, construction crews are able to spend more time on their craft and less time waiting for approvals. New drawings can be returned electronically and shared with the on-site team as they are required. The recorded as-built plans can also be shared with the accounting department at any stage of the project.
