Join the Small Firm Forum for a group discussion of how to produce better construction documents. This is a roundtable discussion—prepare to share tips and opinions while learning from your colleagues.

It is easy to get into a routine when working on construction documents for your projects. While this is generally efficient, we might benefit from revisiting our methods.

What is the best way to organize sheets, notes, schedules, etc? How much detail is appropriate for any given project and client? What level of specifications makes sense?

Is there a way for small firms to arrange a peer review of their drawings for a set of fresh eyes?

And, since the person we are trying to communicate with is the general contractor, are there new ways of doing CD’s that would make their life easier?

Learning Objectives

  1. Participants will gain information on the level other architects detail their drawings.
  2. Attendees will learn how other architects write specifications.
  3. Participants will gain an understanding of how to make CD’s more helpful to contractors.
  4. Attendees will learn how to do peer reviews of CD’s with their colleagues.
