Organize plan sheet sections to show a logical progression of the project work. Group plan sheets according to their type and give each section a sequential letter. Follow the section order shown below. On most projects reserve Sections A, B, C, and D for the categories shown. Use the remaining sections as necessary to fit the specific project requirements. Other sections may be added as necessary. Use an arrangement within the guidelines that best fits the project needs. For instance, on a project that consists only of scattered work sites it may be advantageous to use a section for each site.
Typically place tabulation of quantity sheets at the beginning of the section, followed by sheets showing the work. Place Standard Drawings and Details at the end of the section where they apply.
