window size as that for a project specification. Use the same numbering and
identification data as required for typed pages and cross-reference in the
technical paragraphs. Refer to Appendix U for a sample sketch sheet.
Sketches must have EFD approval prior to inclusion in specifications. Sketch
changes should be incorporated in the as-built drawings.
