What is a Voluntary Document?

A Voluntary Document in the construction industry refers to a document that is not legally mandated but is often used to provide guidelines or recommendations to improve performance or efficiency in the construction process. These documents can serve various purposes such as setting industry standards, outlining best practices, facilitating coordination between different project stakeholders, or promoting sustainability. Examples of voluntary documents in the construction industry include technical specifications, quality guidelines, safety protocols, environmental guidelines, or even design criteria. While these documents are not legally binding, they often influence construction operations due to their direct impact on project quality, safety, and cost-effectiveness.
