In some instance, the client would ask me to prepare as-built drawings 
as part of the construction phase.  I would prefer the contractor doing 
as-built drawings rather than the designer.  Why? because, in my 
opinion, whoever does the as-built drawings is simply warranting every 
single nut and bolt were installed per details and spec.  The contractor 
should be the one warranting that.  In most design offices that I worked 
for in the past, the contractor would submit as-built drawings for the 
engineer to review.  When the owner insists on it, I would call it 
"record set", "construction set" rather than as-built.
Is it standard of practice for engineer to do as-built drawings?
