How to Make a Construction Document In Five Steps

Construction document creation and management is easily one of the biggest time commitments for a company’s administrative team.

As a Construction Manager, you’ve got enough on your plate already. Gadzoom’s platform enables you to take charge of the issue and generate USACE and OSHA compliant documents in minutes. Here’s how to make yours in five simple steps:

Instead, our extensive library has done the leg work for you, mixing and matching components to meet your contract’s unique needs.

Step 3: Fill Out Your Contract Information

One of our platform’s unique qualities is its ability to save and infill your contract information throughout the construction documents you’ve selected. Simply answer questions one time when prompted, and we will take care of the rest! Your necessary information will auto-populate into each of the documents you are generating.

Step 4: Select Your Team

Another time-saving feature is how team member information is stored and selected.  Simply enter your roster with the names and important information for each of your team members one time. From there, you have the ability to select your team for each document  or project by simply clicking on the name of those you’re assigning to your project team.  

Step 5: Add Your Definables

Every job has its own combination of subcontractors, definable features of work, and responsibilities. At Gadzoom, we allow you to fully customize your construction documents by selecting and assigning definable features from our complete list of possible DFOWs.  Then assign Competent Persons for each task from your provided list of team members with a simple click. It’s that easy! With Gadzoom, you’re five steps away from saving your team countless hours of research and typing, enabling more time to be spent on effectively managing the project and increasing the bottom line.
