Building Office

Use smino for searchable, seamless and legally compliant documentation of your construction projects. Learn more
Commercial construction matters are usually handled by communal or state and federal offices. These building offices are responsible for all construction measures in their respective areas. In doing so, offices take over the planning of the buildings and the construction supervision. Urban land use planning, which is an essential planning instrument for urban development, is also the responsibility of the building offices. BWith smino, you as an employee at the building office have all building matters clearly summarised in one software solution.

Make communication in the building office and with other project partners as simple as possible. In the building office, you work with a wide variety of public agencies on a daily basis.

The efficiency of their contact management and exchange is significantly increased with smino. Your control and monitoring tasks can also be simplified with smino. As a result, construction administration becomes clear and structured. This includes the monitoring, management and maintenance of new buildings.

As a building office, you also track and review building regulation tasks and building applications. This task also falls within the remit of the building supervisory authority, which is often the same as the building office. At smino, all data is stored in compliance with data protection regulations and can be retrieved at any time. This way, you never lose track of the commercial construction measures in your area of operation.
With smino, no information is lost. In the meantime, your building office is spared the time-consuming and impractical task of storing numerous documents.
