This information protects the company's assets by preserving important decisions, warranties, certificates and reports made during the construction process. In the event of determining accountabilty or even in use for litigation the information is critical. As maintenance issues arise and as the need to remodel emerges, having timely access to information saves time and costs.

What is the cost of DR's service?

Usually the general contractor absorbs the cost of our services. Traditionally, general contractors provide closeout information as part of his contractural obligations to the owner or tenant. But to the general contractor there is a labor/material cost associated with copying, organizing and distributing to the various parties multiple copies of each drawing set and 3-ring binders. The cost of shifting from hardcopy to digital is not significantly more; the cost of producing a digital closeout record is comparable to the cost of producing and distributing multiple hardcopies.
