    Arcadis was able to reduce the risk and improve productivity in the processing of hundreds of Change Orders for the California High Speed Rail project. The team struggled using SharePoint in managing the volumes of information and had no automated way for quantity verification. Introducing BUILD into this large infrastructure project provided a better platform in organizing the information and data. Adding Takeoff to the team’s workflow improved the productivity of verifying quantities of the submitted Change Orders, Takeoff improved productivity of the estimates by 50%.
