Tape Measuring

As-Built Drawings | Record Drawings | Measured Drawings

Field Measurements and Notes of Existing Conditions:

We measure all existing structures on-premises, any existing interiors required, and take notes of all existing conditions. Each job will vary.

As-built drawings: are prepared by the contractor. They show, in red ink, on-site changes to the original construction documents.


Measured drawings: are prepared in the process of measuring a building for future renovation or as historic documentation. They are created from on-site measurements of an existing building or space.


Record drawings: are prepared by the designer and reflect on-site changes the contractor noted in the as-built drawings. They are often compiled as a set of on-site changes made for the owner per the owner-architect contract.

-TYPES OF PLANS-

‍Floor Plans: The basic layout of the walls, windows, doors, fixtures, and plumbing.

Interior Elevations: Starting at the finished floor elevation and stopping at the ceiling, interior elevations show individual walls in specific rooms.

‍Exterior Elevations: Provides key information about the building heights – overall roof height, windows, doors, decks, etc.

RCP (Reflected Ceiling Plan): It is referred to as a reflected ceiling plan since it is drawn to display a view of the ceiling as if it was reflected onto a mirror on the floor.

Roof Plans: A vital part of the planning stage for any new roof construction, and also for any renovation, repair, or extension work being performed on an existing roof.

Building Sections: A cut from the foundation through the roof. Includes walls, windows, doors, floors, ceilings, and observable major structural elements only.

Electrical Plans: Information about power, lighting, and communication for an engineering or architectural project. These are the existing conditions of the electricity (switches, Outlets..etc).

Basic Site Plans: Location of the house within an approximate property boundary. Highly detailed site plans are also available.
