What is a Sketch Log

Definition of Sketch Log in Construction

The sketch log for a construction project is a management tool that is used by general contractors or construction managers to manage the sketches issued by the architect, engineers of designers on the project. Sketches are vehicles to solving issues on a construction project. In some cases the architect or engineer may develop a sketch out in the field to describe a solution to a problem. In other situations, a formal sketch is developed and submitted in a formal manner to all associated parties that will need the information provided on the sketch to construct the project. The proper management and dissemination of sketches is an important facet of construction management and the sketch log is a tool to keep all the information regarding these sketches in current and in easily accessed fashion.
