Join Jim Rogers for an in-depth discussion in this video Changing the way RFIs are handled with PlanGrid, part of Construction Industry Weekly.
- [Instructor] In an earlier episode of this weekly series…when we were talking about going digital with our drawings,…we created a sample project in Plan Grid,…and then viewed those drawings on an iPad.…Now I'm going to jump back into that project,…and see how we can rethink our RFI process…when we go digital.…Now RFIs, or requests for information,…are as common on a construction project as plan revisions.…Throughout the project we see RFIs sent…between the trade contractors and the general contractor,…and then from the general contractor to the designer,…and this has typically involved something like an RFI form…or cover sheet where the person looking for information…gives a description of their question,…and then probably attaches that RFI form to a plan sheet…or a copy of a cutout view of that plan sheet…where they clouded some issue that needs clarification.…
Then the RFI form is used to track the progress…and who's okay with what when, and what the answers are.…Now this is definitely a process that can be improved,…
