Developing Shop Drawings for a hotel building in Canada
To develop shop drawings for metal panels for a Hotel building in Canada
The client is a leading building envelope contractor throughout Canada and are leaders in creating Architectural Facades.
Tesla had to develop shop drawings for performed metal cladding, aluminum composite panels, and metal louvres. This included:
Reflected Ceiling Plans
Girt and Flashing Schedules
The client had provided us with the pdf files of the architectural drawings along with a sample drawing so that we can follow the client’s standards.
AutoCAD and pdf format of the shop drawings
The scope of this project though initially had multiple claddings, was reduced to just ACM wall and soffit cladding.
What made this project uniquely complex that most of its walls were of different thicknesses and thus it had become necessary to resolve and adjust the details.
The elevations were also not in CAD format and thus to increase efficiency, we decided to edit the image versions of all the elevations, insert them into CAD and detail out the necessary the areas and fade the rest of the image. This solved out our purpose to a great extent and was well received by the client.
Due to the consistent quality of work that Tesla delivered, the client outsourced many more projects.
