CASE 962-D - A Guideline Addressing Coordination and Completeness of Structural Construction Documents

Since the mid 1990's, owners, contractors, and design professionals have expressed concern about the level of quality of structural construction documents. They have observed that the quality of these documents has deteriorated, resulting at times in poorly coordinated and incomplete design drawings. Inadequate and/or incomplete design drawings often result in inaccurate competitive bids; delays in schedule; a multiplicity of requests for information (RFIs), change orders and revision costs; increased project costs; and a general dissatisfaction with the project.

In an effort to address these concerns, the Council of American Structural Engineers (CASE) has prepared this Guideline. This book discusses the purpose of this guideline, the background behind the issue, the important aspects of design relationships, communication, coordination and completeness, guidance for dimensioning of structural drawings, effects of various project delivery systems, document revisions, and closes with recommendations for development and application of quality management procedures. A Drawing Review Checklist is attached.

New for 2013 was a top to bottom comprehensive update that included important added insights on coordination and completeness including issues involving BIM and alternative project delivery.

A companion document is also available: CASE Tool 9-1: A Guideline Addressing Coordination and Completeness of Structural Construction Documents
