Key project documents

Pre-construction

  • Project concept drawings
  • Site plan approval
  • Building permit
  • Financing

Master Document Register - The MDR is basically a list of all the documentation deliverables for a specific project, with additional information on each of these documents, for example: 

  • Identification information (number, title, discipline, document type)
  • Document’s status and progress information (revision index, date, status, etc)
  • Information on expected delivery dates
  • Information on actual delivery dates 

Construction documents

  • A0 Sheets – Cover sheet for a permit set or construction set. These project information documents serve as cover sheets for a permit set or construction set. They lay out the general scope of work, including a site plan with the general condition of the work site, and plans that show fire protection and accessibility.
  • A1 Sheets – Demolition. Demolition plans show the current state of the structure and indicate what must be demolished as part of the construction project.
  • A2 Sheets – Floor plans. Also known as blueprints, floor plans are working drawings that show an aerial view of each level of the building. They include building dimensions, interior walls, exterior walls, and relevant fixtures.
  • A3 Sheets – Elevation drawings or Section drawings. Elevation drawings are architectural drawings that show cross-sections of a building. Also called section drawings, they show ceiling heights, wall construction, foundation plans, and framing plans.
  • A4 Sheets – Finish plans (reflected ceiling plan) An architect or design team provides these plans to show what materials will be laid atop the core structure. A4 sheets include a reflected ceiling plan, which shows the ceiling as viewed from the floor, including any lighting fixtures. These sheets also show the location of power outlets, and they make reference to what's known as a finish schedule (found later in the plans).
  • A5 sheets (interior elevations): A more detailed variation on the A3 sheets, these elevations might show furniture, light switches, and wall finish types.
  • A6 sheets (schedules): In the construction industry, the word "schedule" refers to lists or spreadsheets of certain materials. Construction sets and permit sets feature door schedules (showing all the doors that appear on other sheets) and window schedules (showing all the windows that appear on other sheets).
  • S sheets (structural drawings): These building design drawings are the work of a structural engineer, who has a different role than an architect. The structural engineer’s S sheets show the structural schematics of a building, including concrete footings, wall-to-roof connections, joist layout, and any specially engineered pieces in the building's framing. Complex projects may require greater levels of detail in these engineering drawings.
  • M sheets (mechanical drawings): These types of drawings show mechanical systems in a building, most notably an HVAC system (which controls heating and air conditioning and is required in most new homes and office buildings).
  • P Sheets (plumbing drawings): These show the location of pipes, water tanks, and plumbing fixtures. Plumbing systems include vents that cut through the roof and allow sewer gases to safely escape the building.
  • E Sheets (electrical drawings): These drawings show detailed information about a building's electrical plan.
