e-Construction and ROI

e-Construction practices are being successfully used in many state transportation departments, and the tools for implementing these paperless environments are commercially available and supported by the industry. The use of e-Construction practices continues to grow with more awareness brought by EDC-3 efforts and federal and state research. e-Construction will continue to be supported in the fourth round of the Every Day Counts Initiative (EDC-4) to go beyond paperless practices.

e-Construction is the collection, review, approval, and distribution of highway construction contract documents in a paperless environment:

  • Electronically capturing construction data
  • Electronic submission of all construction documentation
  • Increased use of mobile devices
  • Increased automation of document review & approval
  • Essential use of electronic signatures by all parties throughout the process
  • Secure document and workflow management accessible to all stakeholders on any device

FHWA has developed Addressing Challenges and Return on Investment (ROI) for Paperless Project Delivery (e-construction).

You’ll find sections on:

  • Plans, Specifications, and Estimates (Ps&E)
  • Electronic Bidding And Contractor Selection
  • Project Construction Management
  • Project Collaboration Tools
  • Digital Signatures
  • Project Inspection and Testing
  • Project Acceptance
