Construction Documentsalso called Working Drawings or Contract Documents

Construction documents are used by a project owner (designer’s client) in obtaining overall project bids, which are project cost estimates, from contractors and are later on used by contractors to obtain price quotes from subcontractors.

The construction documents define the quantities and qualities of, and relationships among, all materials required to construct a project; they establish the contractual obligations for the client and the contractor, and they define the roles of the construction team members.


What are construction documents

What Are Construction Documents

  • A set of complete construction documents is made up of two to three components. The largest component is the set of drawings. The set can range from a single sheet to potentially hundreds of sheets, and can include drawings that address the architecture, interiors, plumbing, mechanical systems, structural, and landscape designing for the project.

  • The drawings typically begin with the sheets of ‘A’, Architectural, followed by ‘S’ for Structural, ‘I’ for Interiors, ‘P’ for Plumbing, ‘E’ for Electrical, ‘M’ for Mechanical, et cetera.

  • Another component commonly included in a set of construction documents is the specifications manual, or “spec book.” The spec book is a written project manual that covers products, materials and methods to be used in constructing the project.
