This comprehensive manual on interpresing construction documents covers both the graphic and written sets and demonstrates how they relate to each other. Complete sets of construction documents for three actual building projects are offered on folded 11 x 17" sheets, and in a companion CD-ROM. Incorporating the relevant terminology and practical applications of sustainability and BIM software, this book covers the most current ways construction documents communicate information.
