Design that builds
To help Bolster Contractors deliver financially-guaranteed construction results, we ask that architects produce their drawings according to a simple set of standards.
Clean & Complete
Drawings clearly show only what is actually being built while including a complete list of all fixtures, finishes and accessories (Bolster GCs produce shop drawings).
Dimensions vs. Scale
Drawings have very clear dimensions and do not require the GC to scale (Scaling driveways is one thing, scaling custom cabinetry is another).
Drawings must include clear general conditions and written specifications so that GCs know exactly what they are bidding on.
Here is an example of what Bolster considers a good set of drawings (thank you Agustin Ayuso!)
