All facets of the installation are to be coordinated. A scale drawing of the area to be installed is required to determine type of carpet, carpet quantities, quantity per dye lot, installation method, cushions, adhesives, transition moldings, wall base types and other accessories, and to identify the proper location of seams.
On new construction, provide architectural drawings that define the entire installation area with space names or numbers and a finish schedule of flooring style, patterns, colors and installation methods. On existing structures, provide new measurements and shop drawings.
Consideration should be given to carpet and adhesive conditioning, material delivery considerations, material reclamations and other trades’ schedules.
