Abstract

Awareness and attention towards the factors affecting the design and contractual documents assists the construction stakeholders to plan effectively before commencing project design phase.Attention & ability, claims & conflicts, changes & challenges, disputes & delays, escalations & efficiency, performance & position, status & situations, accord & satisfaction, variations & variety and several others are major concern in construction project. These are attributed to ineffectiveness and inefficiencies of construction process.One of the crucial tools to manage project concerns is project documentation. Major input for many of the construction process is design drawings and documents. The quality of the design and documents produced, procured and practiced have major influence on the performance and efficiency of construction projects in construction phase. It is vitally important that ill effects of inadequate design documentation quality be identified and discussed. The objectives of this study are to investigate & identify the effects of sufficiency of project document, especially in the areas of project planning and monitoring with focus on cost, time and quality. The intention of this study is to look at areas of application of the results obtained from this action research as a beneficial proposition to all the stakeholders in a project.
