Site-Specific Wiring Diagrams - Do You Do Them Or Not?

I deal with some pretty complex systems. I get pushback from integrators who do not have the will or skill to create termination drawings for their field technicians and for engineers like me to make sure that the actual wiring will meet the intent of the contract documents. Do you require such drawings before your tecs begin wiring? Why or why not?
