Field Manual

TheField Manual was developed specifically for field construction personnel who are responsible for the successful implementation of the Regional Construction Standards.

Field Manual CoverThis Field Manual contains information extracted from the Regional Construction Standards, Fifth Edition, which is frequently needed in the field, including:

  • a Measurement and Payment Section, which consolidates all Regional Construction Standards Technical Specification Sections in one section;

  • a Standard Details Section, which provides reduced images contained in the Regional Construction Standard; and,

  • a Conversion Table for facilitating mathematical conversions that are frequently needed.

The Field Manual was especially prepared to be adaptable to job specific requirements. Reusable binders are provided to allow insertions for items not contained in the Regional Construction Standards, such as Standard Details specific to a locality or a project.
