This course provides instruction for establishing a routine procedure in the review of a typical set of Infrastructure plans that could represent a local street, highway or other infrastructure improvement. The course uses a descriptive sampling of a variety of plan sheets, reviews the use of the sheet by various disciplines within the design teams, and suggests the expectations that a construction team might have for each sheet, thereby stressing the importance of a review that seeks to identify anomalies or contradictions within the plan set.

Completion of this course would provide the student an understanding of the usage and the reasoning that supports the need to review a variety of sheets in a typical set of infrastructure plans during their preparation. This understanding provides a basis for discussions with the other design team members on each assignment. The intent is to reduce the expenditure of budget on false starts. The knowledge gained from the course can provide specific direction to the various disciplines involved. The intended end result is a savings in both time and labor spent on corrections or revisions, and a reduction in construction change orders.

The course is applicable to design engineers and technicians, construction estimators and construction supervisory personnel. The student taking this course would be expected to be familiar with common plan terminology that might be found on a set of infrastructure plans.
