Kathy’s Construction Document Tips

Over the years, I’ve accumulated a few helpful tips for completing construction documents that I’d like to share.  These mainly apply to a Bid project; for example: an addition to an existing building.

Organize: On paper, or with a sketch software program, sketch what drawings, details, and schedules are needed, and place each on their proper sheet.  This will give you a good idea on managing your time.  Expect changes.
