As-Builts: Dumb, Dumber or Intelligent

cosmic blue brainAll renovation projects must reference a set of drawings that show existing conditions. In our field, these drawings are referred to as “As-Builts.” The purpose of as-built drawings is to establish an accurate representation of the building and to acknowledge existing conditions. An investment in the development of as-built drawings at the start helps alleviate surprises during the construction phase and decreases your chances for cost increases due to unforeseen conditions, a real advantage for building owners.

O! We have seen some dumb ones! Garbage in, garbage out holds true. Inaccuracies, missing information and failure to note important features cost the project time and money.
