Construction Documentation

Recommended Posts

Where is a good resource for looking at a good standard rule of thumb for construction documentation?  Ive noticed that the books I have on it, architecture firms ive worked at and interior design firms drawings vary so much.  Ive heard that the AIA has the best standard but when I checked online you have to become a member to get any info on CDs.  Im just trying to see how in alignment I am with a good standard of drawings.  Ive seen such a huge variation its hard to decifer whats a good standard.

 

Thanks!

This is a sheet I have used over the years. Was shared with me when I started out on my own. I'm sure I need to updated it again, the Feb update didn't fix some of the code changes.
