Trenchlesspedia explains Design Specification
Engineering documents that create the framework for a trenchless project are very important for the control of work quality and the requirements that a contractor must adhere to. They also provide a sense of security to the contractor, solidifying that the scope of the work has been properly assessed and that competing contractors are bidding on a similar basis.
A design specification is an engineering document containing all the fundamental information required to do the work, including the desired method to be used, the geological conditions that are likely to be encountered and the environmental and safety requirements.
