What is field verification and why is it so important?
Field verification (measuring) is the process of verifying the existing (as-built) conditions and documenting these actual conditions of any given structure, facility, building or residence. Many individuals / companies underestimate the vital importance of accurate, complete and usable as-built drawings. A good example of this is that because of the tedious nature of the process many firms or companies will send their entry-level colleagues to the measurement site armed only with a tape measure, clip-board, pencil and limited knowledge of proper data collecting techniques. Or conversely, will be forced to send their over-qualified designers and/or associates to collect the data, consequently sacrificing proper utilization of their more gifted talents like design, project coordination and working (construction) drawing production as a result. Either of these scenarios can result in additional follow-up visits to the site, project delays, errors during design, working drawing or construction phases and many other frustrating / costly events.
