The Exhibits

Floor Plans and Elevations

Final iteration of drawings, usually the result of the Construction Drawing Agreement.  If the plans have been generated elsewhere, the title, date, and iteration of the plans is noted in the Construction Agreement.

Initial Specifications

This is a copy of the specifications developed using the process outlined here.  It represents only the known specifications at the time of contract, of course, and allows for additional changes.

It is important to include these initial specifications as they form the basis for any changes made in later iterations and formalized in the Specification Changes document.

Variance From Initial Specifications Listing

The “Variances From Initial Specifications Listing” worksheet is used to document the changes from the Initial Specification which you know the client is requesting prior to the contracts being signed. 

These items become the content of the first Specification Changes document, which is part of the initial contract process and is signed along with the contract documents. 

Specification Change Document

The Specification Change Document should be used to memorialize all changes made to the the Initial Specifications worksheet.

Follow the instructions provided to set up the dashboard and create each group of specification changes in this application.

Specification Change 01 contains all changes from the  “Variance From Initial Specifications Listing”, and is presented at the contracting session.

Following this system will help in training the Client in the specification change process.
