Lynn Stetson of Builders Exchange sees best project offering ever in 2015

Robin Roenker with The Lane Report wrote an insightful article on the state of the construction industry in Kentucky.

Our own Executive Vice President, Lynn Stetson, was interviewed for the story. Here is an excerpt:

Louisville-based Builders Exchange of Kentucky, a 1,000-member construction trade association that tracks commercial construction project trends across the state, has reported on a total of 2,255 construction projects listed for bid through the end of August 2015, an increase of 9 percent from the same point in 2014.

“We are on pace to report on 3,110 projects by the end of this year, which would be the most in our 88-year history,” says Lynn Stetson, Builders Exchange of Kentucky’s executive vice president. Builders Exchange totals include commercial construction projects across the entire state of Kentucky, as well as Southern Indiana and small regions of West Virginia and northern Tennessee, Stetson said.

IPIN Tip of the Month: Batch Selecting Plan Divisions in One Click

In our recent survey, one of the most frequently requested features that was cited as missing from the IPIN system was the ability to batch select multiple plans by division with one click for downloading or purchasing.

You spoke and we listened: members can now select multiple plans under each discipline in one click of the mouse.

This new feature is easy to learn and can potentially save your index finger from a lot of extra clicking.

 

Step 1. Navigate to the “Plans” page of the project.

Step 2. Click the empty box to the left of the division you would like to download or purchase. This will add a checkmark to every plan underneath that division. You can also deselect or add individual pages within the division or other divisions.

Step 3. Once every desired plan has been checked, click the “Download PDFs”, “Download TIFFs”, or “Purchase Plans” icons at the top of the page to download or purchase the selected plans in the selected format.

That’s all there is to it!
