April 20, 2009 -- How green are your submittal and RFI processes? In a time of increasing focus on the environmental impact of commercial buildings, a new whitepaper from Submittal Exchange discusses how the construction communications process offers a significant opportunity for green innovation, with time and cost savings benefits for all of the participants.
In the whitepaper, “Five Guidelines for Green Construction Administration,” architects, engineers, contractors, construction managers, and facility owners can learn how to measure the success of their current processes and find ideas for improvement by understanding the essentials of effective green construction communications.
By switching to green communication processes, the industry can save 1 million trees per year and reduce carbon emissions equivalent to removing 50,000 cars from the road. Contractors, designers, and owners can save $1 billion per year in shipping costs alone by eliminating wasteful, inefficient practices.
