Paul Rice, Building Official, Gig Harbor (10 minute interview)
The "compare feature" saved one developer from making a $450,000 mistake. The structural and architectural drawings did not match in one critical area of the structure. No one saw this mistake including the architects, engineers and contractors. We found the mistake in less than a minute using Spacedox's compare feature.

60% faster using Spacedox. 2 sets of plans were submitted for the same basic restaurant, one to Spacedox and the other by paper. The Spacedox review took 1.5 hrs. The paper review took 4 hours. A big time savings is how the markups and comments are made in Spacedox. Every comment with Spacedox is easy. i.e. Make comments directly on the plans- arrows and clouds. There is no confusion for the applicant. In a paper review the grid location has to be described in the review letter. These explainations can also lead to clarifying phone calls from the applicant.
