I do Metal frame, Drywall hang/finish Division 9
When bidding a project, where do I find the materials needed for the project.In the plans it says 3 5/8 stud, 5/8 drywall. My question is where do I find the gauge and type of drywall? is it in the spec book?

If you have the specs for the job, you are the only one on this forum that can look for it.

It might also be listed on a "detail" drawing somewhere in the plans.
