What is an 'Instruction' or 'Site Instruction'?


A Site Instruction is a document issued by a Construction Manager (CM) or Owner to provide contractor(s) with clarification and requirements for performing work not included in the contract documents. Typically, a site instruction is issued for a minor change that is considered essential to the completion of the work but does not affect the contract price or project timeline. 

In the Procore application, there is a Project level Instructions tool developed to help users in Australia and New Zealand manage their site instruction documents. Instruction types can also be customised for your specific project environment to include architect instructions, client instructions, site instructions and more. You can also create a customised prefix and numbering scheme for each instruction type. To learn more, see Instructions.
