During an industry-wide labor shortage, time and efficiency are critical for construction professionals. When using AutoSpecs, we’ve found... getting accurate results within minutes is truly a wow moment.

Pype, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) family of products for the construction industry, announced today its enterprise partnership with Hawaiian Dredging Construction Company, Inc. (HDCC), a full-service general contractor serving the state of Hawaii since 1902.

HDCC came to Pype seeking an intuitive solution that could streamline the process of creating submittal logs. The general contractor was following a standard procedure of creating the logs from scratch using spreadsheet software, and the process took up to a month of skilled work to complete for large projects.

“For every construction company today, time is an incredibly precious resource,” said Sunil Dorairajan, co-founder and CEO of Pype. “At Pype, our goal is to utilize artificial intelligence and machine learning to create structure from unstructured data to mitigate project risks. If we can add capacity to a company by making contract compliance data more accessible, they can better invest their employees’ skills to execute projects more effectively and positively affect the bottom line.”

Since deploying AutoSpecs, HDCC reports they have been able to reduce the time spent on developing submittal logs for large-scale projects from one month of skilled work to one week.

“Being able to wrap your head around submittals earlier in a project’s life cycle is a benefit to the entire team,” said Christopher Baze, BIM manager at Hawaiian Dredging Company. “During an industry-wide labor shortage, time and efficiency are critical for construction professionals. When using AutoSpecs, we’ve found the turnaround from initially uploading a PDF to getting accurate results within minutes is truly a 'wow' moment.”

Pype was recognized as one of Builtworld’s top 50 software companies in 2018 and has become a staple in construction compliance and risk management. Pype’s software integrates with other platforms, such as project management and document management tools, and its solutions are currently used by over 150 of ENR’s top 400 companies. They have recently secured several large enterprise wins, including Haskell, PARIC Corporation, GLY Construction, and Spawglass.
