Architectural Drawings for Building Construction

Architectural Drawings for Building Construction


For the successful completion of any construction project, construction documents such as drawings, sketches, and plans are necessary. 

Several different types of drawings could be used on your site.

The perspectives of individual customers and buildings differ from buildings to buildings. Even the budget of the project can change the drawing requirements of the project.

What are Architectural Drawings?

An architectural drawing is a technical drawing of a building or civil building project that architects and designers use to develop a design idea.

Drawings are the most basic means by which an architect expresses concepts to clients. These sets of drawings aid in explaining the benefits and drawbacks of a design.

Architectural drawings aid a building contractor in the structure's construction. Drawings are often prepared to keep a record of a completed civil building project.

The elements listed below are often included in a detailed list of drawings.

  • Layout Out Plan

  • Project Layout

  • Elevation Drawings

  • Sectional Drawings

  • Working Drawings

  • Opening Schedules

  • Drainage Plan

What is meant by a layout plan?

It is the process of transferring dimensions from the layout design to produce the physical positions of a building's corners and walls. It is also known as the setting out plan or demarcation plan to the ground.

The layout clearly defines the outline of the excavations and the centre line of the walls, allowing the construction to proceed smoothly.

What are Project Layout Drawings?
Project layout drawings are also known as floor plans. A floor plan is a sketch that illustrates the arrangement of a house or property from the top down. i.e. a bird's-eye view.

Floor plans display different walls, windows, doors, and stairs, as well as permanent installations such as bathroom fixtures, kitchen cabinetry, and appliances.

What Is an Elevation Drawing and Why Do You Need One?

An elevation sketch is a two-dimensional drawing of a three-dimensional space created using an orthographic projection.

It could be a two-dimensional representation of a wall or a sequence of walls with increasing degrees of specification used in interior design.

An interior elevation plan is also known as a section drawing. It also contains vital information provided by the designer with a front or side perspective of space.

From the final elevation drawing, one can easily figure out the positioning of elements like furniture, fixtures, ceiling height, and other decors.

What exactly is a section drawing?
Sectional drawings are used in architectural drawings to represent a cross-sectional view of a building that is perpendicular to the horizon line.

In other words, a section drawing represents a vertical cut through an object or structure, usually along the principal axis.

The section drawings represent both the internal and exterior profiles of the object, as well as the inside space. This also includes the wall that separates the inside from the exterior, providing an unusual view of the subject.

What exactly are working drawings?

Working drawings are often called construction drawings. Construction drawings are the precise representation of what is to be built.

These drawings include all revisions from beginning to end and are suitable for use by contract builders.

What is the definition of a schedule?

A schedule refers to a chart or table that describes the windows, doors, finishes, lintels, footings, piers, and other elements of a construction project. A window schedule is a diagram that depicts each window opening in the project as well as all of its particulars.

Schedules are employed in all types of construction settings, and they essentially make it easier to disseminate detailed descriptions, measurements, and materials that are included in all of the basic goods on the job site.

The estimator may easily propose the hardware schedule to a variety of hardware vendors to obtain comparable prices by using a timetable.

The Importance of Drain Drawings?

Drainage plans are crucial papers that should be on every job site. All of the drains on your property should be included in your plan. It should distinguish between filthy and surface drains.

You may need to perform detailed research and develop a new drainage plan if the plan is too old or the information it contains is outdated. Double-checking your plan for accuracy and completeness is critical.
