What is a Draw Request?
A Draw Request, in the realm of construction, is a formal process involving a requisition for payment for work performed on a specific job or within a specified period on a project. This request is typically submitted by contractors or subcontractors to the project owner or financier to cover labor expenses, material costs, and other related construction expenditures. A Draw request initiates a draw inspection where a third-party inspector confirms the validity of the claim. These requests aid in maintaining project transparency and ensure that funds are allocated appropriately in line with the progress of the project. This process is pivotal in effective construction project financial management.
