Abstract

The Australian construction industry has been portrayed by industry analysts as being uncompetitive and inefficient, with current design and documentation quality being of major
concern to many parties within the industry. As design and documentation quality has a major influence on the overall performance of construction projects, any improvement in quality should lead to corresponding improvements in the efficiency of the construction process. Designers provide the graphic and written representations that allow head
contractors and trade contractors to transform concepts and ideas into physical reality. How effectively and efficiently this transformation occurs, depends largely on the quality of the design and documentation provided. Inadequate design and documentation leads directly to
delays, rework and variations – contributing to increases in project time and cost – and indirectly to increases in the workload of project personnel, adversely affecting their ability to perform effectively and efficiently.
