ShapeDo Wins Built Intelligence NEC People “Innovation of the Year” Award for 2017

Written by Amy

A construction software company, ShapeDo provides project management software centered around automatic drawing overlay and comparison. By comparing any two drawings and highlighting any differences automatically, project managers can identify and react to design changes in real time.

“We were seeing  hundreds of unnoticed changes in drawings stretch project out by months and cause them to run grossly over budget. By using ShapeDo to identify these changes, construction professionals gain an unprecedented level of control over their projects and, therefore, costs.” – Ari Isaacs, ShapeDo CEO

Although newcomers to the UK market, ShapeDo has already seen success in its native Israel, counting the two largest construction companies in Israel – Shikun Binui and Electra – among its customers, and has been used in projects including the Ramon International Airport in south Israel, the Tel-Aviv light rail, Route 6 highway, and the Haifa port.

By leveraging ShapeDo’s visual communications tools and easy project controls along with the quick identification of drawing changes, customers have obtained a profit increase of up to 1.5% of project scope.

“We were receiving 50-100 Drawing updates every month, but with ShapeDo we could actually control the details. Their software made it realistic to review every single drawing down to the last detail, and act wherever there were issues. We issued 10 times as many RFIs and change orders, we had far fewer disputes, and we were actually spending less time doing all this! While there are always some surprises, we now generally discover them on time and get them resolved instantly” – Ido Klein, VP of Business Development, Mifram Ltd.
