When revisions are made by revising and re-issuing the existing structural Design Drawings and/or Specifications, a unique revision number and date must be added to those documents to identify that information as the latest instructions until such time as they may be superseded by new information. The same unique drawing number must identify each Design Drawing throughout the duration of the project so that revisions can be properly tracked, thus avoiding confusion and miscommunication among the various entities involved in the project. When revisions are communicated through the annotation of Shop or Erection Drawings or contractor submissions, such changes must be confirmed in writing by one of the aforementioned methods. This written confirmation is imperative to maintain con- trol of the cost and schedule of a project and to avoid potential errors in fabrication. 3.6. Fast-Track Project Delivery When the fast-track project delivery system is selected, release of the structural Design Drawings and Specifications shall constitute a Release for Construction, regardless of the status of the architec- tural, electrical, mechanical and other interfacing designs and Contract Documents. Subsequent revisions, if any, shall be the responsibility of the Owner and shall be made in accordance with Sections 3.5 and 9.3. Commentary: The fast-track project delivery system generally provides for a con- densed schedule for the design and construction of a project. Under this delivery system, the Owner elects to Release for Construction the structural Design Drawings and Specifications, which may be partially complete, at a time that may precede the completion of and coordination with architectural, mechanical, electrical and other design work and Contract Documents. The release of these structural Design Drawings and Specifications may also precede the release of the General Conditions and Division 1 Specifications.

PAGE 57 APPENDIX Specifications to the Fabricator for ordering of material constitutes a Release for Construction. Accordingly, the Fabricator and the Erector may begin their work based upon those partially complete documents. As the architectural, mechanical, electrical and other design elements of the project are completed, revisions may be required in design and/or construction. Thus, when considering the fast-track project delivery system, the Owner should balance the potential benefits to the project schedule with the project cost con- tingency that may be required to allow for these subsequent revi- sions.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
