Door Elevation Drawing Convention

Prior to this chapter production information has been the primary concern. It is this information both drawings and specification which represents the final commitment to paper of planning and constructional decisions arrived at during the earlier stages of the project. This final documentation is inevitably a time-consuming process, and if it is to be carried through smoothly and economically it is important that all the necessary decisions should have been taken before its commencement. It is...

4.5 Various plastic cut-out templates available commercially produce their own templates and these, of course, give an accurate representation of the particular fitting specified, but in their absence it is safer to draw the fitting to its true overall dimensions taken from the manufacturer's catalogue than to rely on a standard template which may deceive you into a situation where the toilet door fouls the lavatory basin which arrived on site larger than you had drawn it. Sheets of stick-on...

Architect Brickwork Drawings

The drawing at that scale meant that more information could be conveyed legibly than would have been the case had the size of the project necessitated the use of a scale of 1 100. So again a (2-) summary drawing sufficed for all the primary elements. A point is worth making about the way in which the brickwork was described in each case, because it illustrates the fundamentally common-sense way in which all such decisions should be handled. In the larger building there were four different types...

Standard Manga Head

3.4 The assembly is most sensibly regarded as having two window components, each being the largest single composite item within the supply of one manufacturer dimensional considerations apply only to the overall size of the frame, and it is the joiner who ensures that door and frame fit one another. This is not passing the buck. Rather, it is putting back in the right hands a buck which the architect should never have picked up in the first place. It is, of course, part of the architect's...

1.12 The complete primary structure of building drawings information demonstrating them. Figure 1.13, taken almost at random from such a drawing, shows the disadvantages. The sheet is cluttered with information, making it extremely difficult to read. The notes and references fill every available corner, and in an attempt to crowd too much information into too small a compass, the draughtsman has had to resort to a lettering style of microscopic dimensions. Any alteration to it would be...

Remember too that the building consists of more than that which can be seen above ground. One of the more useful aspects of a properly drawn set of elevations is that an indication can be given of the sub-structure, and of the building's relationship with the immediately surrounding terrain or pavings (2.17). We have mentioned sectional elevations, and we may as well deal here with general sections also, for in this context they serve the same purpose as the elevations, in that they present a...

2.1 Example of what can happen if site elements are not fully related. The manhole cover relates to neither the paving slabs nor the brick pavings The types of drawings which make up the complete set having now been identified, the next two chapters look at them in sequence to see the sort of information that each should contain. The drawings falling into this category will normally include reflected ceiling plan at all levels general sections and or sectional elevations The functions of the...

It is no use preparing your drawings on a well structured and carefully thought out basis if you are the only one who knows about it. Until such time as a standard drawing method becomes universally employed and recognised throughout the building industry and despite the increasing emphasis being laid on the Co-ordinated Project Information documents previously referred to we are still a long way from that it is incumbent on the producing office to give clear directions as to how its drawings...

To do so would be to invite the possibility of the estimator unintentionally including the item twice....

3.11 Assembly detail from PSA Standard Library. Its simplicity contrasts sharply with the complexity of the detail illustrated in 3.12. What they have in common is that each conveys clearly and precisely the information needed by the operative carrying out the assembly an appropriate scale for the benefit of the assembler. Figure 3.11, taken from the UK Department of the Environment's PSA Library of Standard details, is an assembly drawing. Figure 3.12, part of Foster Associates' highly...

Consider what elemental plans should spring from them. The CI SfB project manual offers a sensible method for identifying these. The complete range of elements in CI SfB table I is available, and offers a useful check list see chapter 1 . Generally speaking, however, few projects and then only those containing problems of a specialised nature will need to go beyond the much more limited range shown in table IV. Other location drawings Site plan, elevations and basic sections complete the set of...

1.19 The simplest possible sub-division of building structure 1.20 Sub-division of building structure into structural elements this is an over-simplification, and that a minimal sub-division of elements would look much more like 1.20. The elements here have one common feature they are all structural. We may introduce other elements, but it is apparent that we are then setting up another hierarchy of information analogous to the hierarchy established when considering types of information 1.21 ....

Complete Drawing Details Of A Precast Concrete Building

Component sub-component and assembly drawings A component may be defined as any item used in a building which emanates from a single source of supply and which arrives on site as a complete and self-contained unit, whose incorporation into the building requires only its fixing to another component or components. Thus, a window is clearly a component, as is a manhole cover, a door, a section of pre-cast concrete coping, a mirror. So, for that matter, is a brick. A brick wall would be an...

4.21 Examples of different types of hand lettering CLEAR LETTERING CAN BE PRODUCED AS EASILY AND AS SWIFTLY AS SCRATCHY LETTERS, BY USING THE CORRECT TECHNIQUES Horizontal guidelines are essential unless the draughtsman is very experienced and skilful. They may be drawn lightly in pencil for subsequent erasure when the lettering is in ink or may take the form of a closely gridded sheet laid underneath the tracing paper. The use of a blue pencil for guidelines ensures that they do not appear on...
