The risk of time delays, inaccurate costings, disputes and the need for amendments during construction may be reduced if the parties to the building process insist on good documentation.

This bulletin updates and replaces Bulletin 505 Acceptable plans and specifications.

This bulletin covers: 

  • Why produce plans and specifications?
  • Defining good documents
  • Common omissions
  • Project information memorandum
  • Building consent applications
  • Pricing and tendering
