Construction Documents are the basic means of communication in the construction industry.  The key to properly interpreting construction documents lays in understanding the basic framework of a full set of documents.

 

A complete set of construction documents is comprised of two equally important and linked components:

Specifications

and

Drawings

The full-day seminar will include review and discussion on both components; their importance, priority, details, information and influence on the construction industry.

 

This seminar will be broken into 2 content blocks for complementary content in the morning and afternoon, which together will provide the basics needed to effectively use construction documents to the benefit of operations and the projects as a whole.  Attendance for the entire seminar is required to receive recognition for completion.
