Additionally, this project had some discrepancies in the project documents, specifically the location of a manhole that was designed in the over excavation area. Using overlays, the project manager quickly identified this issue and developed a solution with his team before it became an expensive problem. He estimates that identifying this issue early saved the project $20,000.
TraceAir is also an essential tool for tracking project progress. Weekly aerial images are accurate within 1/10th of a foot, identifying and preventing errors in the field before they become costly. On this project, the project manager was quickly able to see when the grading contractor erroneously excavated beyond the limit. By catching this error early, he estimated he was able to save the project $10,000 in rework costs.
