Private Planroom

Private Planroom is a service provided by the Builders Exchange that allows general contractors, construction managers, architects and engineers to distribute plans and specs electronically, saving the cost and hassle of reproduction and distribution. With Private Planroom, document access is provided only to the subcontractors and suppliers who have been given an access code by the general contractor. The system also includes an Invitation to Bid feature that makes it easy to inform selected subcontractors and suppliers about the project and a bidder tracking log to show which subcontractors and suppliers accessed the project documents online. Private Planroom can save both time and money by streamlining the document distribution process. General contractors, construction managers, architects and engineers interested in the system should contact us for more information, while subcontractors and suppliers can simply go to our Private Planroom page to register for immediate access.
