Managing the multitude of documents generated on every project is a challenge.
Kahua’s Document Management suite streamlines and enhances the tracking and management of all construction documents. With collaboration, configurability, tasks, notifications and mobile access you have the power you need to reduce risk and improve project deliverables.
Eliminate the Submittals Paper Trail
The submittal review process is critical to ensuring that a project’s deliverables conform to the owner’s expectations reflected in the architect’s specifications. The submittal process affects cost, quality, schedule and ultimately project outcome. Large projects can involve thousands of submittals, including shop drawings, samples and material or product data, and management of the process can be a cumbersome and time consuming effort.
The Kahua Submittals application provides a powerful, efficient way to track the entire submittals process from vendors to the Architect of Record, including any project participants. Collaboration and workflow enable you to leverage the knowledge of the entire project team to minimize project delays and defects.
Get The Last Steps Right And Everyone Can Leave Happy
After substantial completion of your project, effective, efficient creation and management of the punch list is critical to ensure that all project participants understand the details of what is remaining. How effectively this process is managed can affect owner satisfaction and contractor profitability.
The Kahua Punch Lists application speeds the creation of your punch list and allows you to easily manage all punch items recorded on your project to facilitate the successful completion of your project.
Keeping track of daily project activity is important to effective schedule management, and critical in protecting the legal interests of all project participants.
The Kahua Daily Reports application provides a powerful, collaborative way to efficiently log daily information on labor, equipment, materials, weather and more. With Kahua, you’ll never be left wondering exactly what happened, and when.
Critical path materials and equipment need special attention to maximize labor utilization and minimize schedule delays.
Kahua’s Material Tracking application allows you to identify, track and manage the fabrication and shipment of critical materials and the delivery of critical equipment to keep your project on schedule and under budget.
The goal of the RFI process is to resolve any gaps, ambiguities or inconsistencies associated with your construction documents. Resolution in the bidding process or early in construction can reduce the cost of corrections, and increased efficiency in the process can avoid costly delays.
The Kahua RFI application provides a comprehensive RFI solution for contractors, architects, engineers and owners to accelerate the submission and resolution of any questions relating to the construction of your project.
Information recorded from the field is critical to ensuring that work is being completed in accordance with contract documents. Field observations help architects and engineers continuously keep the owner up to date on the progress and quality of work, and create a record of on-site safety, quality and design observations.
The Kahua Field Observations application is optimized for mobile data capture to allow you to capture observations directly in the field, without having to go back to the office or construction trailer. Capture, manage and archive all field observations to minimize project risk.
Issues are any problems or conditions that can have a potential negative impact on your project. Most project issues are, by their very nature, unexpected. How quickly and efficiently you resolve issues will have a big impact on project schedule and budget.
The Kahua Issues application enables you to easily log, track and resolve unforeseen items that occur on your project. Integrated with the Cost Management suite, Issues are used as a precursor for any change requests and change orders that might be issued.
Project meetings can be a valuable mechanism to evaluate progress, resolve issues and set objectives. Yet if not managed well, they can also be a huge waste of time. The value of your project meetings is often determined by how well you manage the process and data associated with those meetings.
The Kahua Meetings application automates and simplifies the process of setting up and executing your meetings and helps deliver better outcomes by improving your ability to track and manage meeting action items.
You often are what you are perceived to be. Even when you are doing a great job, you need to make sure your project communications are of the highest quality.
The Kahua Communications application simplifies the management of inbound and outbound project communication, and makes it easy for you to drive consistency and accuracy in the format of your company and project communications.
