In heavy commercial construction the biggest challenge in reading prints is the ability to combine print information from a variety of sources required for construction.

A new chapter discusses a set of included plans detailing the Spokane Intercollegiate Research & Technology Institute. In addition, expanded sections covering removal of contaminated soil, tilt-up construction, engineered wood and exterior insulation and finish systems (EIFS), pre-engineered metal buildings, exit devices, and metal detectors are included.
