CHULA VISTA, Calif., Sept. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Inertia Systems, a location-driven construction management platform, today announced the launch of its patent-pending Intelligent Construction Drawings (ICD) technology that for the first time enables proactive, data driven, and connected smart construction drawings to mitigate mistakes throughout the construction process and improve job site productivity.

Advances in construction have offered solutions like augmented reality, 3D building, drones, and robots that are completely changing the industry. However, despite more jobsite technology available now than ever before, working with construction drawings has remained a manual and inconsistent process. Typically conducted through static PDF documents, on-site project teams can waste hours each week manually adjusting individual sheets or objects within a construction drawing, with guesswork often leading to avoidable mistakes that cost teams both time and money.

Inertia’s ICD technology leverages the power of Building Information Modeling (BIM) in a new way to grant construction teams a more powerful way to access and manage information throughout the complete construction process. This new technology analyzes construction documentation and data to produce high-fidelity object-linked smart construction sheets, allowing users to assign records to items, rather than areas. By creating these smart objects and self-aware visualization, high-value construction sheets are delivered to the field without the need for 3D modeling, enabling construction teams to implement smarter, faster decision making. Inertia’s ICD facilitates the intersection of data, workflow, and teams while democratizing information across the jobsite. Combining data, information, and daily activities together to become any given project’s Common Data Environment (CDE), ICD provides all stakeholders both timely and instant access to information, data, updates, and more.
