Building drawings lack construction and/or detailed material information used for construction. Contractors employ many experienced and highly paid resources to develop complete list of Bill of Materials (BOM), procure material from 100s of different suppliers, and track 1000’s of order activities. This is a cripplingly manual and error-prone process that leads to costly mistakes and over ordering. On a typical construction project, 15% of material is wasted and additionally up to 20% of project’s labor cost can be consumed for handling material. That is a trillion dollars ($1T) wasted annually globally.
