As-built drawings should be prepared for all repaired and new structures on the RHD Road Network and archived for future reference.
Definitions :

As-Built Drawings – are drawings prepared by the contractor after completion of construction. These need to incorporate all changes made during construction in the original drawings, and will be subsequently checked and approved by “Engineer” to the contract.

Responsibility :

Method :


When construction of a structure is complete and accepted by “Engineer” the contractor should prepare as-built drawings. The contractor will collate all the official notes regarding any change in the design issued during construction period and will incorporate these in the as-built drawings. The contractor must also visit site to ensure all such changes are reflected in the drawings. Once the drawings have been prepared, they will be sent to the respective “Engineer” to the contract for review and approval.


Upon receipt of the as-built drawing, “Engineer” will verify the drawings with the official notes issued time to time regarding any change of design and office record of actual construction accomplished. These drawings should also be checked on site against the bridge/culvert as constructed. He may ask for any clarification or modification. Once satisfied with the submission, The "Engineer" will accept these drawings, keep record in his office and send to the EE- BD for archiving.
