Podio for architects, engineers, construction managers
We are using Podio for LEED certification, a sustainability certification scheme developed by the United States Green Building Council. Yearly over 6.000 projects get certified worldwide and each project involves teams from different companies working together on a building project during a couple of years. A perfect environment for the use of Podio and that is why we decided to use Podio to make all these companies work together on building projects. But, I would be interested to know if there are any architects, engineering companies or construction companies or even building project management companies that are using Podio so we could share experiences.
Sounds like a really cool use of Podio - thanks for sharing :) This customer story might be interesting for you: http://blog.podio.com/2014/02/27/project-management-pioneers/

Hi Sara, thanks for your post. I looked at the customer story you pointed out. Overall it would be interesting to be able to connect to professionals within a specific industry. Within the AEC (Architects, Engineering, Construction) business Podio could be of great value but it is hard to figure out who is using it and how they are using it. Is Podio thinking about how this could be done or are there any plans to bring industry specific professionals together?
Great question :)
I think what you have done already (create a post in the Community) is a good start - hopefully other Podio users will find your post and be able to contact you based on this.
We don't have a real solution to this at this point, hopefully we can think about creating the option in the future - thanks for the input.

Hi Emmanuel, I just found this post and I have some experience within the Podio an AEC area, if you are interested in sharing experiences feel free to contact me.
I have a small arhitecture company and I use Podio to track all my plans submission at the local council.
for each project I track when the plans are submitted to council and when it has been collected. It seldom gets approved the first time. There are usually some changes and corrections required by different council departments. The plans get changed and submitted again. This can happen another second time before it is appoved.
The lifespan of such a plan can be between 2 months to a year, and with about 30 projects running one has to keep track. If the client needs to know when plans have been submitted or collected it is easy to get the dates.
I also have an independant consultant who does the admin at council. I created a workspace where I allocated jobs, and on a map where the documents need to be collected or submitted. I have also created a file category where I save the plans and a commentary section where the task is explaned. He can then access this info at home and plan his route and week.
I am not using Podio in the construction stage.
