Problem:

  • We generate many drawings with vast amounts of blank space and every time we revise, add information or update them we generate yet more paper copies.
  • Offgassing from PVC ring binders
  • Badly or unco-ordinated sets of documents

Solution:

  • Provide as many documents as possible in electronic format so the recipient decides whether they read them on screen or print them
  • Provide 3D Model files and let the contractor decide where to generate a section and print their own drawings
  • Deliver documents via a Web server with electronic document management
  • Set out document with narrow margins, to reduce the number of pages
  • Print specifications double sided,
  • Don’t shrink the font size, it must still be readable
