Project Requirements

The residential projects varied in size from 500 sq.ft. to 10,000 sq.ft. and the construction plan set included floor plans, exterior elevations, foundation plans, roof framing plans, cross sections, electrical plans and detail drawings. Client was looking for a partner who could help them develop/draft a typical construction plan set in AutoCAD. Many of these plans (complete construction sets) were sold online.

Project Challenges

Project Challenges

  • Minimum 10 construction documentation (CD) sets were expected to be delivered every month. Average timeline for each project was 4 to 5 days.

  • Most of the drawings in a set were dependant and sequential. Hence assigning more than one architect on a single drawing was not possible.

  • Last minute changes in design were done.
