Some of Our Users

America's Building Records - The National GIS of Building Plans

The First National GIS System for Building Plans

Solving One of the Biggest Problems in the Building Industry
Loss of data and lack of transparency

Have you ever looked for building plans for an existing building and couldn’t locate any? We all keep the data we produce every day in our own digital systems or storage rooms. But none of us knows what everyone else produces.

The founders of ABR built a solution to solve this issue – a game changer for the building industry – the first national GIS for building plans – the ABR Drawing Vault.

How It Works
The ABR national GIS allows you to:

  • Securely store your construction data in a geo-targeted system
  • And not just you, but anyone in the Building Industry can store their data
  • And not just current and future data, but also historical documents and plans (through ABR scanning and mapping services)
  • And it allows all of us to request construction documents from each other

NEXT FEATURE: Location-Based Search

The National GIS for Building Plans Stores and Preserves Construction Data at National Level.
Explore Available Building Plans, Building Department Information, and Fire Hydrant Flow Test Information.

Construction Drawings and Building Plans

Building Plans and Construction Documents

The ABR Drawing Vault is a national GIS system dedicated to preserving building plans and construction drawings – a national digital construction archive, a drawing repository where users upload construction drawings and plans.

Municipality Building Department Information

Municipality Building Department Information

ABR’s Municipality Directory features information on municipality building departments such as: building code requirements, building permit requirements, applications and forms, licensing information, municipality contacts and more.

Hydrant Flow Test Information

Fire Hydrant Flow Test Information

Find existing hydrant water flow tests and use the data for reference only in your designs. Add your own water flow test results to eliminate paper clutter and build your own database of hydrant water flow tests.

The Power of Location-Based Search and Data Mapping

A Single Consolidated View of All Company Projects Available to the Entire Team Anytime, Anywhere

Have you ever had to reference spreadsheets, invoices, search through folders on your computer, or look through files in drawers in order to find some building plans or documents? With ABR’s location-based data mapping and search, you will never have to do that again.

With the geographic advantage, you will make smarter, more informed, and faster decisions. ABR delivers views of your construction data that help project managers, engineers, leadership, marketing, sales teams, and more.

Take Advantage of All Your Data Has to Offer.

How Location-Based Search and Data Mapping Works
Geo-Locate Construction Documents

Locating your own files and files others have shared has never been easier. Our interactive maps do the work for you.

  • Zoom in on a specific location and click to see the files available.
  • Need to see a list of all projects you did in an area? With one quick search you’ll have a list on your screen within seconds.
  • Narrow your search with filters and sorting features
  • Working on a project and you don’t know who has plans for the building? One of the greatest aspects of the ABR Portal is that you can find out who uploaded a file at a location and request access to download it.
