List the types of information found in the title block on the floor plan page.
- Is there a grid? What system is used for identifying the grid lines?
Yes, dashed lines are used to form a grid. The lines are identified using a letter to number system
-Location -Drawing issue (number) -Date issued -Project number -Architect -type of drawing (floor plan/section etc)
Why might this information be important? It helps identify the location of the site, contact information to answer further queries and helps in getting the most up-to-date information about the site ( date issued)
DRAWING CONTENT - PLANS
- What type of information is shown in this floor plan?
Rooms: their sizes, locations Scale Access points Doors Functions of rooms (e.g. study) Services (e.g. mechanical, fire, lighting) Wall depths Ceiling
- Why is some information found in General Notes? Examples of information on the general notes are legend and disclaimers. The notes are used to identify general information that applies to all the drawings
- What is the purpose of the legend? It’s purpose is to identify types of materials, structures and systems used in the construction
- Why are some parts of the drawing annotated? Illustrate how the annotations are associated with the relevant part of the drawing. They are annotated to provide additional information such as, door numbers, function and room numbers that the basic drawing cannot
- Provide an example of the dimensions as they appear on this floor plan? What units are used for the dimensions? 1:100 :dimensions Units: mm (millimetres) provide.
- Illustrate how the locations of sections are identified on the plan. What do these symbols mean?
- Are some areas of the drawing clouded? Why? No, because the building has no revisions.
DRAWING CONTENT – ELEVATIONS
- What type of information is shown in this elevation? How does it differ from the information shown on the plan? It means that there is another drawing (A4.01) on which section (AA) is detailed facing West
It shows external finishes such as masonry, concrete walls, and window type. And Levels:
- Illustrate how references to other drawings are shown on the plan. What do these symbols mean?
GL – ground level FL – floor level RL – relative level BL – basement level
It differs from the plan because it gives more detailed information about each individual level
It means that room A4.09 is on drawing JJ -
- How are windows and doors identified? Provide and example of each. Is there a rationale to their numbering? What do these numbers mean? Can you find the answer somewhere in the drawings?
Are dimensions shown? If so, how do they differ from the dimensions on the plan? Provide an example of the dimensions as they relate to the elevation. Yes, they differ from the dimensions on the plan as they are more detailed to the single building
If numbers were provided the windows would be numbered clockwise around the building
- Illustrate how floor levels are noted on the plan? They are noted as F.L G.L : ground level B.L : basement level
- What types of levels are shown on the elevations? Illustrate how levels are shown in relation to the elevation.
GL – ground level FL – floor level RL – relative level
BL – basement level
- Is there a grid? If so, how / where is it shown?
- Illustrate where this elevation is located in relation to the plan? Drawing not included
4 - Is there a legend? What does it identify and how is it used? Yes, it is used to identify specific materials used in the building
DRAWING CONTENT – SECTIONS
- What type of information is shown in this section? How does it differ from the information shown on the plan and elevation? It provides cross sectional information about the internal structural systems and surfaces. Cross sectional information is not provided on the plan and elevation.
- What types of information on the elevations are expressed using words? Illustrate how this is done. Additional information on the reason for certain decisions are expressed using words. In example. ‘to align with step face’, and to identify other necessary information not shown through the legend
- Are dimensions shown? If so, how do they differ from the dimensions on the elevation? Yes, they are the same as the elevation dimensions - What types of information on the sections are expressed using words? Illustrate how this is done. Functions of rooms e.g. chapel
- Illustrate how the doors and windows are identified on the elevations. - Illustrate how the section drawing differentiates between building elements that are cut through and those that are shown in elevation (beyond).
- Are any parts of the elevation clouded? Why? No, because there are no revisions.
- Provide examples of how different materials are shown on the sections. Sections are shaded in, but no material hatch shown
- Find where this section is located on the plans. Drawing not provided
DRAWING CONTENT – DETAILS
- What sorts of things are detailed? Section details : ‘carpet floor finish’ Plan details: raw materials
- Are the details compressed using break lines? Why? Yes, to show different sections references to other plans
- Provide examples of how different materials are shown on drawings at this scale.
- Find the locations of these details on the plans, elevations and sections. No back referencing. Pages are missing
