QR Code Research Survey

Dr. H W Chris Lee, assistant professor in the School of Civil and Construction Engineering at Oregon State University, has contacted us to help with a research survey.

The research project is titled Investigating the Feasibility of Using Quick Response (QR) Codes for Construction Document Control in Highway Construction, and is supported by PacTrans’ Small Projects (visit for more information). ihr_qr_code_ohne_logo100x100

Your feedback will help Dr. Lee and his research team acquire the needed data to study the feasibility of embedding QR codes in highway construction documents such as plans and specifications.

workzoneThe anticipated benefits of this project include:

  • Electronic documents can be regularly updated on a web portal.
  • A field user can easily validate the hard copy available by scanning the QR code using a mobile device such as smartphone or tablet.
  • The use of QR codes would reduce the need of carrying hard copies of the documents to the construction sites.

This research aims to improve the document control process in the construction industry.

Your participation and support will help the OSU School of Civil and Construction Engineering recognize the potential benefits of and barriers to using QR codes in construction projects.

The information you provide will be kept confidential to the extent required by law.

Please complete the survey by Wednesday, May 21.
