How JengAI Rescued a NY Sub from a $120,000 Oversight

A Must-Read for Every Construction Professional

In New York, where construction never stops, a story comes to life that many in the industry can relate to: The stress of tight deadlines, the task of understanding detailed plans, and the occasional slip-ups we all make.

Any seasoned construction professional knows the mantra all too well – the details make or break a project. Architectural blueprints, with their unique quirks and nuances, hide symbols and notes that, when overlooked, can result in costly mistakes.

The oversight that almost was

In the middle of a huge tech renovation in New York, a subcontractor faced a challenge. The blueprints? Extensive. The team? Their finest. Yet, nestled within the vast array of pages was a nuanced note about SS-2 material for windowsills, a detail that almost escaped their scrutiny.

Then JengAI's AI-driven Bid Triage & Project Analyzer came into play.

JengAI's Automated Project Analyzer processed the plans and immediately detected this. It identified 6 floors and 122 windows with this material, an expensive marble, in the project

When the calculations were redone, the sub realized that close to $120,000 was missed! This amounted to almost 10% of the total bid amount and would have had a significant impact on their profit margin.

This is not the first time such a problem has come up. Our estimators are fantastic but many times certain details can be overlooked – they are human. Gamyte has saved us from making some very costly mistakes.

The value of time

Monetary savings aside, JengAI showcased its prowess in efficiency. Rectifying the error, revising plans, and team huddles added more hours to an already exhaustive schedule. JengAI streamlined the process, championing time efficiency.

The estimating team told us after that they would have saved 20 manhours plus the 4 hours they spent on the missed symbol had they used JengAI's Automated Project Analyzer.

The human touch

"Our team, with all their expertise, are still human," shared the subcontractor's lead. "In our industry, even minor oversights can have major consequences. JengAI became our trusted ally, ensuring precision."
