  • Conformance of the scope of work with building permit and zoning approvals
  • Completeness and adequacy of plans, specifications, contracts, and other construction documents
  • Adequacy of the overall budget
  • Distribution of costs included in the line item construction budget
  • Proposed construction schedule
