This presentation provides instruction for establishing a routine procedure in the review of a typical set of Infrastructure plans that could represent a local street, highway or other infrastructure improvement. The course uses a sampling of plan sheets, reviews the use of the sheet by various disciplines within the design teams, and suggests the expectations that a construction team might have for each sheet, thereby stressing the importance of a review that seeks to identify anomalies or contradictions within the plan set.
Completion of this course would provide the student an understanding of the usage and the reasoning that supports the need to review a variety of sheets in a typical set of infrastructure plans during their preparation. This understanding provides a basis for discussions with the other design team members on each assignment. The intent is to reduce the expenditure of budget on false starts. The knowledge gained from the course can provide specific direction to the various disciplines involved. This knowledge can help prepare questions for the client from a pro-active position. The intended end result is a savings in both time and labor spent on corrections or revisions, and a reduction in construction change orders.
This course draws on the author's extensive experience in the review of plans and provides project execution tips that can save your project cost and schedule. Several low cost activities on the front end of a project are covered that will prevent costly last minute changes.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
