Construction Documentation of a residential house
To prepare construction documents on AutoCAD for a residential home in Canada
The client is an Architectural Designing firm based in Canada.
The scope of the project was to create construction documents on AutoCAD for a residential home in Canada. The client availed Construction Documentation Services to obtain building permits. The client had provided us with an AutoCAD file of the architectural design along with a sample so that we can follow his standards.
The following sheets were created based on the client’s requirements:
A2 – Basement Plan
A3 – Ground Floor Plan
A4 – Second Floor Plan
A5 – Roof Plan
A6- Elevations- North & South
A7- Elevations- East & West
Walk-Out Wall Section
Basement Walk-Out Detail
Door- Window Schedule
A9 – Cross Section (1 in No.) & Construction Notes
Composed Sheets of Construction Drawings in .dwg format and PDFs
The client made several changes in the Structural planning during the course of the project. The beam layouts were changed. The joists were initially placed horizontally which were then changed to vertical layout and again to horizontal layout. This resulted in a lot of re-work from our end. The joist span was also changed several times during the span of the project.
The plans and elevations did not match at several places. We had to raise several RFIs and based on the response, we followed either the plan or the elevation.
We had to tag all the elements based on the sample file provided. This was a time-taking task.
Meeting a short deadline of 5 days was a challenge considering the numerous changes in the design carried out by the client. Our team worked over-time to achieve the deadline.
