To build a safe and standard structure, we have brought together certified and qualified Professionals to give an outstanding building design and build a safe structure for our clients.
Our Professionals includes Architect, Structural engineer, Mechanical engineer, Electrical engineer, Quantity Surveyor, Land Surveyor and Soil engineer.
Building design starts in the heart of the person who want to build the structure, he then give the Idea to the Architect who will bring first rough sketch of the what the has in mind to him/her, the person will look at it with the help of the architect, the person may make some corrections and suggestions before the final draft of what is called Architectural drawing.
These are some drawings that must come first before building any on the site. The drawing includes
An architectural drawing or architect’s drawing is a technical drawing of a building (or building project) that falls within the definition of architecture. Architectural drawings are used by architects and others for a number of purposes: to develop a design idea into a coherent proposal, to communicate ideas and concepts, to convince clients of the merits of a design, to enable a building contractor to construct it, as a record of the completed work, and to make a record of a building that already exists.
Architectural drawings are made according to a set of conventions, which include particular views (floor plan, sections and elevations), sheet sizes, units of measurement and scales, annotation and cross referencing. Conventionally, drawings were made in ink on paper or a similar material, and any copies required had to be laboriously made by hand. The twentieth century saw a shift to drawing on tracing paper, so that mechanical copies could be run off efficiently.
The development of the computer had a major impact on the methods used to design and create technical drawings making manual drawing almost obsolete and opening up new possibilities of form using organic shapes and complex geometry. Today the vast majority of drawings are created using CAD software.
This is the most important document in getting building approval at the state town planning office.
Below are the examples typical Architectural drawings
Structural drawing, a type of engineering drawing, is a plan or set of plans for how a building or other structure will be built. Structural drawings are generally prepared by registered professional structural engineers, and informed by architectural drawings. They are primarily concerned with the load-carrying members of a structure. They outline the size and types of materials to be used, as well as the general demands for connections. They do not address architectural details like surface finishes, partition walls, or mechanical systems. The structural drawings communicate the design of the building’s structure to the building authority to review. They are also become part of the contract documents which guide contractors in detailing, fabricating, and installing parts of the structure.
Below are the examples of structural drawings
A mechanical system drawing is a type of technical drawing that shows information about heating, ventilating, and air conditioning. It is a powerful tool that helps analyze complex systems. These drawings are often a set of detailed drawings used for construction projects; it is a requirement for all HVAC work. They are based on the floor and reflected ceiling plans of the architect. After the mechanical drawings are complete, they become part of the construction drawings, which is then used to apply for a building permit. They are also used to determine the price of the project.
An electrical drawing, is a type of technical drawing that shows information about power, lighting, and communication for an engineering or architectural project. Any electrical working drawing consists of “lines, symbols, dimensions, and notations to accurately convey engineering’s design to the workers, who install the electrical system on the job
A complete set of working drawings for the average electrical system in large projects usually consists of
- A plot plan showing the building’s location and outside electrical wiring
- Floor plans showing the location of electrical systems on every floor
- Power-riser diagrams showing panel boards
- Control wiring diagrams
- Schedules and other information in combination with construction drawings.
Electrical drafters prepare wiring and layout diagrams used by workers who erect, install, and repair electrical equipment and wiring in communication centers, power plants, electrical distribution systems, and buildings.
A plumbing drawing, a type of technical drawing, which shows the system of piping for fresh water going into the building and waste going out, both solid and liquid
Plumbing drawings show piping plans, piping schematics, materials, and fixtures used in the installation of all piping, fixtures, and appliances associated with sanitary and storm drainage, venting and water supply.
For renovation or alteration projects involving plumbing changes or additions, Plumbing Drawings must include information on the existing system sizes and materials.
Additional drawings, showing the building fire protection systems used for the suppression of fires (e.g. sprinkler, and standpipe systems), are required (where applicable).
Drawing requirements for Plumbing drawings (including fire suppression systems) include, but are not limited to, the following: Site Service Plans showing,
- Sanitary Sewer to the building (size, location & material)
- Storm sewer to the building (size, location, & material)
- Water main to the building (size, location, & material)
- Fire hydrant locations
- Plumbing plan drawing (showing piping, sizes, & fixtures) * Isometric drawing (showing sizes, waste, vent, and stacks)
- Schedules (showing fixtures, loading, water supply demand) * Drain and stack hydraulic calculations
- Fire Suppression Systems showing,
- Sprinkler plan (sizes, layout and head location) – Sprinkler material, specification, & hydraulic calculation – Standpipe plan (sizes, layout, and cabinet location
