Construction documentation notepack

A comprehensive, well-coordinated set of construction documents is essential in achieving project success. Accurate and detailed drawings, schedules and specifications improve built outcomes, enable efficient construction and build strong relationships between all project stakeholders. Included within this notepack are resources beneficial for all architectural projects and design teams.

The notes included within this pack are not exhaustive and are based on existing content in Acumen. The collection of notes should be considered an initial guide to assist practitioners to navigate a number of topics and subjects relevant for projects being documented. Every project has unique requirements that must be considered by practitioners which is beyond the scope of this notepack.
