Construction drawings are sometimes referred to as working drawings or building drawings. They are used by all involved in a project to work on the actual building of the design. The main purpose of construction drawings (also called building plans, blueprints, or working drawings) is to show what is to be built, while the specifications focus on the materials, installation techniques, and quality standards. Most of the designers put their basic construction information in the drawings and use the spectacles to complex materials, techniques, & standards to be met. Others pack their drawings with written notes that cover many of the problems that are frequently contained in the spectacles. In some situations, you’ll find the same information in both places. If there is a spectacle between the specs and drawing, the spectacles generally override the plans, at least legally.

They outline the size and types of materials to be used, as well as the general demands for connections.

These drawings play a crucial role in the success of any structural construction and bidding process It provides a platform for planning and estimating cost for each phase of construction.

The structural drafter is responsible for producing working drawings that clearly describe the schedule and material involved for each phase of construction.

To generate accurate construction drawings the drafter must have thorough domain expertise knowledge of local building codes and relevant industry experience.
