Users of Project Dox only need an e-mail address with Internet access to download a reader program that will allow them to submit their plans, correspondence and project changes. “All these details are kept in one location-plan checks, soils reports, architectural and structural plans – everything,” Walter said. “Everyone involved will be able to `talk’ to each other within that location, and they can leave `notes’ on the documents while keeping the original intact,” he said. Every time one of the parties working on the project uploads a document or makes a comment, an e-mail is automatically generated and sent to everyone involved, which speeds up the entire process. The city of Palmdale is one of only a handful of cities using Project Dox in the United States. It is funded through fees collected for the city’s Geographic Information System. The city of Palmdale’s building and safety department has launched a new, free Web-based program called Project Dox. This is an online program management system that allows the city, builders, architects, engineers, inspectors and contractors to coordinate and collect plan submittals to the city electronically. “We’re excited about the Project Dox system,” building and safety director Shane Walter said. “It will enable anyone who is building, developing or remodeling within the city of Palmdale to submit plans, check on status and correspond with building and safety at a much greater speed and without generating multiple paper documents,” he added. last_img
