What is a Submittal?
A submittal in the construction industry refers to the documents or materials that contractors present to architects and engineers for approval during the course of a project. The submittal process ensures all products and materials meet the quality and specifications outlined in the contract, helping to maintain standards and avoid costly revisions or errors. These documentations can include shop drawings, material data, samples, and product data. The submittal process is essential to avoid any potential discrepancies or misunderstandings, and it has to be accurately managed to guarantee the project's success.
