ASI: Architect’s Supplemental Instruction
5 years ago No Comments

(pronounced like the initials: ay-ess-eye)

In the world of construction administration, an architect or interior designer may need to issue an ASI to clarify some part of a set of contract documents, whether within the contract drawings or the specifications. As long as the contractor reviews, agrees and accepts that the clarification will not result in a change in contract sum or contract time, then the ASI will be logged, noted and closed. However, if the contractor takes issue and indicates that additional funds or time will be involved, then the ASI will remain open and will have to be resolved.
