Our Strategies of Recording As-Built Drawings | Record Drawings
We ensure accuracy following the guidelines:
- Cross out words like‘equal to’& replace with specific information during construction
- While adding details to drawings, we ensure the same scale as used in original drawings
- Keep old details, instead draw score lines or “X” through them to make the changes clear
- Provide details of changes in fabrication, installation, location, sizing, material, etc.
- Give necessary information on contractor’s designed systems
- Include elevations & grade modifications on pipe utility, earthwork, etc.
- Record surprising obstructions on-site
- Create complete as-built drawings, not merely a collection of pages containing changes
- Ensure supplemental pages containing plan modification are sealed & signed by registrant author
- Include changes arising out of the final inspection process.
- Record Drawings uses red for deleted items, green for added items & blue for special information
- Refer to specific actions instead of referencing change-order numbers or associated documents
- Use a written explanation to describe changes, avoiding abbreviations & clear lettering
- Add revision notes to affected section view, general notes, profiles & schedules
- Maintain consistency while adding notes & using the same figure to denote changes
- Add associated shop drawings necessary as an appendix to As-Built Drawings
- Update the index sheet to show the latest drawing addition
- Make specific notes on underground utilities, showing exact location, depth & materials
- Stamp title sheet once finished with “Record Drawing As-Built,” including contractor’s details
- Prepare a PDF of As-Built Drawings for emailing, posting to cloud storage, or copying to CD

As-Built BIM Modeling Software
Using the blueprint , we let out redline drawings in the field along with other mark-ups. Our mark-up tools used by bim engineers and architects include highlighters, arrows,clouds & text comments, in a wide array of colors.
We also use a construction softwares help clients attach files & photos on construction drawings. This helps team members to see every information. Managing as-built documentation lies at the core of our construction management technique. Other applications used by us include PlanGrid, ArcGIS and FieldWire.
