The Proof is in the Precision
Architectural design and construction is a complex process, with numerous necessary diagrams paving the way. With no cookie cutter.
Success depends in part on accurate and detailed architectural drawings to represent the project plan in all its scope.
Done from all angles and every perspective the architectural drawings help you understand exactly what is happening, and when. It gives you useful tools for knowing the next step and clarifying questions at any point along the construction journey.
“Thank you for the sneak peek! How exciting.
I can’t even stand it, I am so excited. My heart is pounding.
This is the kind of physiological reaction you look for, yes? It is very cool to see our house with another story on it, in all the various incarnations.” – R.B.
Know the Plans
We prefer to keep you on-board as we progress with the vision for your deluxe quality custom home. If the requirements seem bewildering, here’s a quick guide to tell you precisely what page we’re on. Literally.
Depending on your particular project, we will produce all or many of the following types of architectural drawings:
|A plan view from above the building showing the roof outline, including slope, drainage, and features such as chimneys, vents and skylights.|
Exterior and interior elevations
|A flat view of a building seen from one side. Each elevation is labelled in relation to the direction it faces, so the ‘north elevation’ of a building is the side that most closely faces north.|
|“Sections” represents vertical planes cut through the structure; in the same way that a floor plan is a horizontal section viewed from the top. In a section view, everything cut by the section plane is shown as a bold line, often with a solid fill to show objects that are cut through.|
|Much like a typical map, a view from above showing the arrangement of spaces. This horizontal section shows features such as walls, windows and door openings.|
|Fully and clearly defined requirements for engineered items, these are a graphical language that communicates all needed information from the engineer who designed, to the professionals who will do the construct.|
|Shows the whole context of a building, including property boundaries, means of access to the site, and nearby relevant structures – along with roads, parking areas and hard landscaping. Site plans show services connections, such as drainage and sewer lines, water supply and electrical cables. We also provide landscape drawings along with the architectural drawings if required by the project.|
|Shows arrangement of existing land, structures and buildings. Architects need an accurate set of survey drawings as a basis for their working drawings, to establish exact dimensions for the construction work, using surveys measured and drawn up by specialist land surveyors.|
Permit sets include
|Show a small part of the construction at a larger scale, much like an inset on a map. They can also show small surface details, such as decorative elements. A full set of construction details needs to show plan details, as well as vertical section details in order to see the construction in three dimensions.|
|Shop drawings are produced by the supplier or manufacturer, and are typically required for prefabricated components, such as windows, appliances and air handling units. Installation and coordination shop drawings of the MEP(mechanical, electrical and plumbing) trades—such as plumbing, fire protection and electrical are critical.|
|Once your home’s floor plan and exterior elevations are established, one of the next stages is to draw the electrical plan. Any special electrical outlets or fixtures for the custom home design are included here.|
|Mechanical systems drawing shows information about all HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) work. Mechanical drawings become part of the construction drawings used to apply for a building permit|
With architectural drawings you clearly see your dream home materialize … from the inside out.
