A part of the design process for a land development project is both the implementation of what is shown on the plans and the construction of the project. This means that the plans should contain enough information for a contractor to be able to build what is in the plans. This information would include the applicable construction details.

The following are two books regarding site design and details that I would recommend.

1) Site Design and Construction Detailing by Theodore D. Walker

This book provides discussion about site work as well as associated examples of construction details.



Check out current pricing on Amazon.


2) Site Construction Details Manual by Nicholas T. Dines and Kyle D. Brown

This is a good book to use as a reference for site construction details.


Check out current pricing on Amazon.
