A construction management software and blueprint app.
PlanGrid Build from AutoDesk is a construction management software and blueprint app for delivering real-time project information to workers in the field. PlanGrid lets you mark up your plans with notes and photos, record issues that need to be resolved, link into contract documents such as RFIs or specs, and handover items with the click of a button.
The top features of PlanGrid can be broken down into four areas:
The cost of PlanGrid Build starts at $39/month for 550 sheets. The price of the software will increase depending on how many sheets you need, up to their Crane package which includes unlimited sheets for $119/month. All versions include unlimited projects, photos, and documents. You can try any version with a free 21-day trial.
We got introduced to PlanGrid from a job that was already using it with Interserve. We used it here from when we started to erect the prefabricated concrete walls. Using PlanGrid was great to collaborate between contractors. We would have at any time 120 people on the site, and upwards of 20 contractors were using PlanGrid at the same time.
PlanGrid was priceless on a job like this. Especially being able to take photographic evidence of our progress. It’s worth it’s weight in gold just for that.
Plangrid has been excellent in the field. I use it daily. I think a “next step” for section views (if possible) would be instead of just a hyperlink to the sheet…the pop up of said detail zoomed in. This would save going back and forth from detail to plan to detail to plan in some instances.
