This episode of the ProfitDig Construction Show is all about as-built drawings. If you are in the construction industry, it is critical that you understand this topic.
As-built drawings reflect how the project is actually built versus how it was shown in the original construction drawings.
When you make changes in the field that are different from the contract drawings, your men will make note of those changes - measurements, depths, etc. A project manager will then move that information onto a CAD file which is sumbitted to the GC. From there it is submitted to the architect or engineer or record, and finally to the owner. The as-builts must be accurate in order to properly reflect the actual work that has been done. If a problem arises, it allows the source of the problem to be more quickly located.
Listen in as a construction industry veteran, project manager and ProfitDig partner Jeff Spencer, tells you everything you need to know about is-built drawings.
