Terms & Definitions
Construction administration (CA) - The fifth and final phase of a standard architectural project. Learn more here.
Submittals - Official documents used during construction administration to verify that materials, dimensions, and specifications are aligned with the design intent. It is a tool used alongside RFIs (Request for Information) to track changes after the design documents have been issued. Questions are tracked via RFIs. Submittals are sent because they require review/approval before teams can move forward. Both are documented and saved so that there is a paper trail for all parties to reference which decisions were made.
Upskill Your Knowledge
Plans, Elevations - Different types of orthographic projection used to communicate complex 3-dimensional objects on a 2d plane. These drawings omit perspective/distortion so objects can be expressed with true measurements. Software like CADTools gives Illustrator the ability to create dynamic objects to draft, annotate, and dimension drawings.
