At the outset of every new facility, refurbishment, or improvement project for an existing building, the design phase is initiated. This phase involves the meticulous planning of how the project will be executed to meet requirements, codes, and standards. Although the design phase typically accounts for only three percent of the lifespan of a building, it lays the foundation for the years to come.

Each room serves a specific function, which in turn determines the type of opening and product that should be installed. Numerous parties are involved in making these decisions and ensuring desired outcomes. Each opening represents a design project, necessitating effective communication, coordination, and ultimate decisions.

Overtur offers a unified cloud-based platform during the design phase, providing access to the history of each decision throughout the opening life cycle. It provides capabilities for all project team members, including the design team working on new facilities, building owners who can provide comments on project requirements, integrators working on access control, and vendors and manufacturers of products who can offer consultative advice.
