ProjectWise’s Geospatial Management Extends Searchability Of Philadelphia Water Documents

The Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) is a municipal utility providing a population of nearly 1.7 million people in three eastern Pennsylvania counties with integrated water, wastewater, and stormwater services. The utility is responsible for planning, design, construction, operation, and maintenance of the necessary infrastructure. By integrating the rapidly growing ProjectWise data management system with the city’s geospatial database and Capital Program Integrated Tracking (CAPIT) database, the department improved the ability to search for and locate CAD files and construction photos. The USD 65,000 project significantly reduced the expense of recreating lost CAD files, which cost roughly USD 30,000 to produce.
