Architectural Drawings

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, section etc.), sheet sizes, units of measurement and scales, annotation and cross referencing.


Structural Drawings

A 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.


Electrical Drawings

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 an engineering's design to the workers, who install the electrical system on the job".

Plumbling Drawings

A plumbing drawing, a type of technical drawing, shows the system of piping for fresh water going into the building and waste going out, both solid and liquid. It also includes fuel gas drawings. Mainly plumbing drawing consist of Water supply system drawings, Drainage system drawings, Irrigation system drawings, Storm water system drawings. In water supply system drawing there will be hot water piping and cold water piping and hot water return piping also. In drainage system drawings there will be waste piping , Soil piping and vent piping. The set of drawing of each system like water supply , drainage etc is consist of Plans, Riser diagram, Installation details, Legends, Notes. Every pipes should me marked with pipe sizes. If the drawing is detailed , fixture units also should be marked along with the pipe. If it is shop drawing, sections also should be shown where there pipes are crossing. Each pipes with different purposes will be displayed with different colors for ease of understanding. Drainage pipes should be shown with slope.


Elevation Drawings

An elevation is a view of a building seen from one side, a flat representation of one façade. This is the most common view used to describe the external appearance of a building. Each elevation is labelled in relation to the compass direction it faces, e.g. looking toward the north you would be seeing the southern elevation of the building. Buildings are rarely a simple rectangular shape in plan, so a typical elevation may show all the parts of the building that are seen from a particular direction. Geometrically, an elevation is a horizontal orthographic projection a building on to a vertical plane, the vertical plane normally being parallel to one side of the building.


Quantity Survey

A Quantity Surveyor (QS) is a construction industry professional with expert knowledge on construction costs and contracts. They are not to be confused with Land Surveyors or Land Survey Engineers.

Services provided by a quantity surveyor may include:

  • Cost planning and commercial management throughout the entire life cycle of the project from inception to post-completion.
  • Cost management process, Asset capitalisation, Value determination.
  • Production of company pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) documentation in line with company policies.

Construction

Construction is the process of constructing a building or infrastructure. Construction differs from manufacturing in that manufacturing typically involves mass production of similar items without a designated purchaser, while construction typically takes place on location for a known client. Construction as an industry comprises six to nine percent of the gross domestic product of developed countries. Construction starts with planning, design, and financing; and continues until the project is built and ready for use. Large-scale construction requires collaboration across multiple disciplines. A Projects manager normally manages the job, and a construction manager, design engineer, construction engineer or architext supervises it. Large construction projects are sometimes referred to as megaprojects.


As Built Drawings

Plans are a set of drawings or two-dimensional diagrams used to describe a place or object, or to communicate building or fabrication instructions. Usually plans are drawn or printed on paper, but they can take the form of a digital file. These plans are used in a range of fields from architecture, urban planning, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, industrial engineering to systems engineering. Plans are often for technical purposes such as architecture, engineering, or planning. Their purpose in these disciplines is to accurately and unambiguously capture all the geometric features of a site, building, product or component. Plans can also be for presentation or orientation purposes, and as such are often less detailed versions of the former. The end goal of plans is either to portray an existing place or object, or to convey enough information to allow a builder or manufacturer to realize a design.


Remodeling & Alterations

Renovation (also called remodeling) is the process of improving a broken, damaged, or outdated structure. Renovations are typically either commercial or residential. Additionally, renovation can refer to making something new, or bringing something back to life and can apply in social contexts. For example, a community can be renovated if it is strengthened and revived. Technology has had a meaningful impact on the renovation process, increasing the significance and strength of the planning stage. The availability of free online design tools has improved visualization of the changes, at a fraction of the cost of hiring a professional interior designer. The decision regarding changes is also influenced by the purpose of renovation.


Consulting of Residential & Commercial Projects

At Residential Consulting our cornerstone is a thorough inspection and extensive narrative report. Our inspection and report system typically require more time than most in the industry. Our goal is to provide the best inspection and report available. We urge our clients to attend the inspection and gain a better understanding of the individual characteristics of their home so that they may protect their investment. Our report includes valuable maintenance information specific to the property being inspected. A commercial building is a building that is used for commercialuse. Types can include office buildings, warehouses, or retail (i.e. convenience stores, ' big box ' stores, shopping malls, etc.).
