Abstract: Plans and specifications sufficiently communicate the scope of most construction projects. But what about projects that produce multiple kinds of structures that must tie into existing infrastructure in previously developed or sensitive locations? Reviewers beginning with plans and specifications risk missing the big picture: Attributes of the planned assets, basis of the planning, and the circumstances of the construction. The presentation will present a standardized framework for efficiently reviewing the scope portion of a complex construction project during, for example, a peer review. The framework has three sections and thirty-three subsections. Standardization eases the task faced by projects of assembling complete documentation while simultaneously easing the burden on reviewers by placing content in an ordained order. This flexible framework accommodates all construction projects regardless of maturity level, anticipated cost, location, acquisition strategy, or types of assets the project will construct. With the big picture understood, reviewers can delve into the details through plans and specifications or the work breakdown structure dictionary.
