September 8, 2017


How do you go about building your building data? Do you DIY or use a managed content provider? 

The MEP construction industry is a fast-paced industry that is rapidly developing new tools designed to increase profitability. The one road block MEP contractors consistently face in successfully implementing these tools, however, is quality content.

MEP companies spend an inordinate amount of time and money creating and maintaining libraries of components for design and prefabrication. 

This guide walks your through the differences between building and maintaining libraries of do-it-yourself (DIY) content and subscription-based managed content. 

In the guide you will find:

  • The definitions of DIY content and managed content
  • The advantages and disadvantages of each method
  • An easy to use ROI calculation to help you decide which method is more cost effective for your business.
