Conservative Estimates

Overtime the continued access by engineers, architects & printers cause drawings to deteriorate, discolor, tear, or even lose pages. Often times it is the most critical sheets in a set that suffer the most damage from continued access. Water, heat, moisture, sunlight and environment also cause significant damage to drawings.

Disaster Happens

Many factors combine to keep drawings from providing a useful life. Beyond the natural and inevitable effects of time like fading, your drawings are subject to fires,  water damage, floods, earthquakes and other natural disasters.

Doing it yourself. Some things to consider.

Scanning drawings yourself has the appeal of maintaining perfect control of your construction drawings at all times, we understand that appeal but there are definitely some costs to doing it yourself too.

Our Process

Our in-house archivist starts by physically inspecting your construction drawings for damage, discoloration, fading, noise and paper type. Our professional Oce large format scanners are custom calibrated for each drawing set and if needed fragile drawings are encased in protective vellum sheets to ensure the highest quality digital images when scanned.


After scanning, more than 10 fields of information are indexed including: the sheet number, sheet description, drawing type, architect of record, revision date, building or project and more. This allows our users to find individual drawing sheets very quickly based on the meta-data collected.
