  • The first project completed with TPAS (Tablet PC Annotation System), the deliverables included both paper and electronic elevations and associated digital photographs.
  • Larry Gutterman, the project manager of the project for BBB says, “BBB found the export of data to spreadsheets to be quite helpful in validating the quantities of crack and spall conditions. This proved helpful when working with our client to evaluate the project’s scope against available funding.”
