This division will assess objectives related to the integration and documentation of building systems, material selection, and material assemblies into a project. The division will focus on issues related to the development of design concepts, evaluation of materials and technologies, selection of appropriate construction techniques, and appropriate construction documentation. Candidates must demonstrate an understanding of and abilities in integration of civil, structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and specialty systems into overall project design and documentation.
Assessment objectives in this division are from five sections:
SECTION 1: Integration of Building Materials & Systems
SECTION 2: Construction Documentation
SECTION 3: Project Manual & Specifications
SECTION 4: Codes & Regulation
SECTION 5: Construction Cost Estimates
In this video, we take an inside look at the Project Development & Documentation, which covers topics related to the integration and detailing of a project’s systems, materials, and assemblies. Watch to learn more about division objectives, sample questions, and suggested references.
