Abstract:
Construction drawing clarity is one of the most important factors that contribute to a successful construction project. A missing key piece of information, an unclear note, or a misunderstood detail could potentially add weeks to a project and lead to thousands of dollars in extra costs. One vital class of information is the reinforcing bar callout on the drawings.
