Requirement

Visual information to provide finalised set of information to support construction / installation. Visual representations showing final co-ordination between relevant professions, such as architects and engineers, for area and relationships between other elements of the external works construction. Typical installation details produced separately linked to model element and adjacent constructions. Information to be updated to reflect ‘Final Construction Issue’.

Purpose of information

To be updated during the construction process to reflect the final design, and to provide a future reference to sit alongside the O&M Manuals.
