Over the past several years, the role of the designer has changed significantly. In the past, the main task was to outline the project with a pencil on tracing paper. Today the work of the design office is supported by digital devices. Thus, the designer himself is able to create and print all the necessary engineering documentation. However, this does not mean that all obstacles and difficulties have disappeared from his work. In addition to drawing, modern designers are also involved in obtaining all necessary decisions, permits and agreements.
And this means that the number of documents needed to implement the project has increased significantly. "There are situations when the entire project documentation takes up the size of a delivery truck", says Michal Schmidt.
The key to success is therefore minimising time spent on printing and preparation of technical documentation. This is where modern technology comes in handy. How to do it efficiently is proved by the history of cooperation between Lafrentz Polska - one of Polish leaders of construction and engineering industries - and Canon.
