- 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
