This week we have been working on As Built Documentation for one of our outsourced Construction Projects.
As-built documentation is an essential component of a Construction project as it provides an accurate and up-to-date record of the finished work and the materials used in the construction process. It serves as a reference for future maintenance, repairs, and renovations.
Often As-Built Documentation is seen as an afterthought or an additional task to be completed at the end of the project. This is a pet hate of ours and should not be the case. The preparation of as-built documentation should be integrated into the construction schedule, with specific milestones for all handover information. This helps to ensure that the final As-Built documentation reflects the completed works and is available promptly for use by the relevant stakeholders.
