During construction documentation we prepare drawings, specifications and schedules that define the detailed requirements for the construction of the building or fit out to be used in the construction process. Drawings are the illustrative component of the documentation. Specifications and schedules are written documents pertaining to building materials, equipment and construction systems that outline the standards to be met and describe the quality of materials, finishes and built work.
When complete, these documents allow a builder(s) to provide a more accurate quote on the cost of the works. The quality of these documents pertains to the accuracy of the final build cost, so it’s imperative to get a good set of documents for a water tight contract and few (if not no), hidden surprises along the way.
