'A model consisting of documentation, non- graphical information and graphical information defining the delivered project.
“As-built” is defined as the record drawings and documentation defining deviation to the designed information occurring during construction at the end of the project.
“As-constructed” defines the defect and deviation to the designed model occurring during construction. The “as-constructed” model and its appended documentation are continually updated through re-measurement as construction progresses. This allows for deviation to be reviewed with respect to the following packages and making knowledgeable assessment of impact and resolution.'
