Furthermore, what really are the types of the drawings typically produced by these talented Engineers:
It is also commonly called Tender Drawings. It is produced using the conceptual design based on the criteria set by the owner, consultant or designers in accordance with the international codes and standards. These drawings are also the basis for the bill of quantities necessary to estimate the cost of the project.
These drawings are produced by the contractor to define the detailed plan and constructability of the design drawings. It is commonly drafted with utmost details such as precise clearance measurement, length, elevation and sizes of the materials to be used for the installation, taking into consideration the approved specification and standards. The approved materials and equipment by the consultant and the owner shall also be included in this drawings.
As Built Drawings
These are the drawings already installed, inspected and approved at site. The Site QC Engineer or the Project Engineer will conduct red line of the shop drawings to indicate the actual field installation. It may or may not change the drawn shop drawings. These drawings are submitted as part of the handing over after the successful commissioning of the project and stamped as AS Built.
To sum it up, each drawing as shown above is equally important that complete the process of project completion. It complements each other, provides direction and reference to any succeeding steps in the construction and project management.
