The quality of construction documents is perceived to have decreased over the last few years according to professionals in the construction industry. Many feel that this decrease is due to the use of computer technology. This thesis strove to answer the question "Have construction documents improved with the introduction of computers or have they simply added to an already existing problem?" Through literature research, a survey, and follow-up interviews, the study concluded that communication was the main problem surrounding the quality of construction documents. Computers were also implicated as part of the problem yet also as a way to solve it in the future.
