"Brad, you have a phone call."
That’s a phrase that Bradley Utz, Construction Manager for the City of Terre Haute, is used to hearing. Because of his high level of visibility on projects and access to project information, he’s often called upon to provide project updates or answer contractor questions about pay estimates, change orders, etc. Providing this information takes time, and Utz wasn’t always available to find an answer.
“Depending on what they were asking for, I’d have to be at my computer to get it for them. So if I was in the field, I’d have to make a note, get back to the office, hopefully remember, then print it off and get it to them,” said Utz.
