The quality and accuracy of The AEC Associates Architectural Construction Documentation plays a vital role in the successful completion of a building project. The different variety of techniques and methods implemented by AEC industry professionals over past few years has revolutionized the working of the industry, and Architectural construction documentation is no exception. The cutting-edge technology and sophisticated tools used during the pre-construction phase especially help bring greater efficiency and accuracy to the actual construction of the project.

The importance of documentation

One of the most important things to be carried out in the pre-construction stage of a project by the architects is Architectural construction documentation, which has a great bearing on the productivity and the final outcome of a building project. The quality of these drawings and other documents can, in fact, have the potential of making or breaking the whole effort of the design and construction teams. Advanced tools and techniques help architects produce precise, top-quality documentation that leaves little scope of confusion for the actual construction process.

Meeting the challenges

Several challenges are faced by the building professionals when actual construction begins on the site. It’s easier to meet these challenges with the assistance of advanced design development tools. Accurate documentation helps AEC professionals deal effectively with these issues through adoption and use of powerful design (drafting) and modeling applications.

Virtual design

Virtual design applications can save substantial amounts of time and money for professionals and the clients in today’s computer age. Accurate, error-free drawings and 3D models are prepared using CAD and BIM software, so any design inaccuracies or clashes among various design elements can be detected and fixed before final construction starts. This is not true just in case of accurate geometrical information about architectural, structural and other services details, but also about materials details, time schedules, bills of quantities and costing of the project etc.

Precise Architectural construction documentation provides extensive information about the building project, thus helping the AEC professionals to know about the project outcome in advance fairly accurately. It’s possible to visualize and predict onsite challenges and find solutions for them through good-quality documentation, which is very crucial for success of the project.
