The heart of the book is a valuable checklist of details needed to coordinate construction drawings for buildings. It is very easy to use: for example, if designing a roof, architects can simply consult the "Roof Plan" line on the appropriate cross-check matrix, and they will be directed to a number of sections in the book detailing how to relate the roof to the floor, interior elevation, or HVAC system.
These sections tell in concise outline form what to look out for -- are floor framing elements to be removed or saved; do interior ceiling decorations abut the roof frame; does HVAC equipment require a roof opening?
Cross-Check will help architects and builders spot and prevent oversights and coordination errors, in addition to saving time at the job site. It is a handy-size book with a flexible binding, small enough to take along on the job -- and get those plans and specs right. A great companion to Fred Stitt's Working Drawing Manual.
