Request For Information
The Request for Information (RFI) section was the first feature we created in BuilderStorm in response to a specific request from a client. From there, further features were requested and the result is the complete solution you see today.The RFI feature in BuilderStorm will manage your project’s request for information procedure and replace the many different ways these are carried out today. We envisage our system becoming the industry standard for construction RFIs. Improved speed, communication and clarity, combined with the fact that everyone is working on the same platform, will vastly improve your existing RFI system. You can replace Word documents – that need to be opened, edited, saved, attached and sent – with our simple RFI interface.

Reliable and extensive RFI functionality
As each RFI is created, it is assigned a unique reference number. You can add attachments and specify a due date for the response. You can also forward the RFI to anyone within the project and they will receive a notification that a new RFI has been issued.
The feature uses our unique colour-coded padlock system to track the status of your RFIs so you can see at a glance how your project is performing. A chart will be visible in the homepage overview showing the ratio of open/closed and ontime/late RFIs.
Each RFI is stored for the duration of the project, meaning you don’t need to hunt down emails, printed documents or phone records to verify when a RFI was created or resolved; all the information is ready to view on BuilderStorm.
Users with the permission to respond to RFIs can add text and attachments, and other users can add comments to help resolve any issues or ask for more clarification. As response deadlines approach, relevant parties will be notified that an answer is required; this will help improve response times and ensure your project progresses as smoothly as possible.
