As-Built Documentation- What is it?
Why As-Built Documentation?
The As-Built model represents a structural system as it was built. The result is a uniform overall model that can be used as the basis for an operator model. The model is composed of the steps of As-Built documentation and As-Built control. The model, thus, describes the process and the subsequent actual state of a constructed building or facility.
The As-Built documentation of a construction site is always a major point of contention at the end of the project duration when construction companies have to hand over the data and information to the client. Often, this handover does not take place and cannot be fully guaranteed with conventional methods. The As-Built documentation ensures that the construction site is documented in the form in which it was built. On the other hand, the handover of the documentation to the building owner and later to the company can be carried out easily and painlessly for everyone. The AS-Built documentation also creates more transparency between the client and the construction company, as every detail has been documented and can therefore be more easily verified. Thus, the AS-Built documentation with the technical possibilities is not only new but also offers the possibility to fully satisfy all the stakeholders involved, regarding the building documentation in the future.

What are the Advantages of As-Built Documentation?
The connection to a defect management software enables the localization of defects in the BIM models and exchange via the BIM Collaboration Format (BCF).
The AS-Built documentation ensures a higher quality of the building, as fewer defects occur due to early detection.
Thanks to the as-built documentation, errors are identified and corrected at an early stage to avoid the costs of troubleshooting.
Control of Compliance With All Standards
The documentation gives a better overview of what is missing and which points need to be complied with.
Process of As-Built Documentation
Who is the As-Built Documentation For?
The documentation gives banks and insurance companies a rough indication of how much the project will cost and which insurances are necessary to optimally protect everything.
How is the Information in the As-Built Documentation Processed?
Granting Access to Stakeholders
People who are connected to the building can be given access authorization. This way, anyone can find and retrieve the information directly when it is needed.
Various forms of data can be stored in the model, such as written documents, audio or video notes, photos, etc.
The information can be precisely classified in terms of space and time. This creates a clear structure.
For international projects, the documents can be stored in several languages so that everyone can understand the information.
