Show Notes

Document Review 101: My top 10 RFIs that mitigate changes and accelerate the schedule! 

Project document errors and omissions can, in some cases, cost a project millions of dollars above contract and may extend the schedule well beyond the substantial completion date. I’m happy to guide you to be the hero of your project by double-checking:

  1. Room Number Changes 
    • Affects fire alarm programming
    • Affects lighting control programming
    • Affects panel directories
  2. Distribution 
    • Copper vs. aluminum
    • Feeder sizes schedule vs. breaker
    • MLO vs. MCB 
  3. Mechanical 
    • Voltage
    • Amperage
    • Em vs. Normal
  4. Fire Alarm
    • Duct smokes
    • Pulls at exits
    • Systems integration
  5. Electrified Door Hardware 
    • Electrical vs. security and access control
    • Electrical vs. door schedule
    • E-details vs. door hardware spec
  6. Food Service

    • Stub / device / disco
    • NEMA config / 3w vs. 4w
  7. Exterior Device Elevations 
    • Light fixtures
    • Receptacles
    • Card readers, cameras, FA devices.
  8. Interior Device Elevations
    • Specialized rooms with millwork/casework
