Approval of the Design

After all departments have agreed on the design and sent the drawings to the project, where they are reviewed according to Form (6a), the project manager must sure the design complies with the requirements of the owner and the specifications and standards that were agreed upon before it is sent to the owner through Form (9a).

When there are comments from the owner, the project man­ager will send the comments to the departments using Form (8a). Each department will review them and send them to the owner again. There is often more than one department responsible for this change which can directly or indirectly affect from the main activity of the work before the amendment.

The cost control department, for example, which would have to negotiate changes in the price of delivering the project according to the amended design, needs to determine any changes in cost resulting from the change in the original design.

In general, the feasibility study may also be affected by this change, and so the department that prepared it has to determine the direct impact on project feasibility — positive or negative — that would ensue as a result of the design change(s). This process is often finalized by a meeting between the owner and all the depart­ments potentially affected by the proposed changes.

All the changes and revisions are finally delivered upon comple­tion of the drawings, which are stamped win red and marked as approved for construction.
