I'm getting conflicting information about record drawings vs as-builts.
In one ARE source, 'record drawings' are the contractor's responsibility on-site, to document changes as they happen during construction. This wouldn't be the architect's role, since he is not on site as frequently as the contractor, and not as aware of all the in's and out's of the build.
In other ARE sources (+ quick google searches), 'record drawings' are an additional service performed by the architect.
In previous internships I remember taking surveys of recently built projects, and they were called as-builts.
Can somebody clarify the "NCARB" answer to this?
