As construction has become more complex, building codes and standards have also become more complex. Modern construction projects are data-intensive. There are construction documents (including drawings, contracts, specifications), manufacturer recommendations for various products, industry standards and a host of considerations during active construction. Having access to this information on a single device like the iPad allows construction managers, quality control professionals, field supervisors, design professionals and others to minimize risk in real time. While construction is certainly in a slump, the projects that are moving forward will likely see much greater scrutiny.
