We provide Shop Drawings for Contractors, Manufacturers & Fabricators

What are Shop Drawings?

shop drawings

Shop Drawings mainly required prefabricated parts/components. The drawings and specifications offered by architects and engineers are top-level drawings. They show the general design of major components with limited detail. One good not fabricate, manufacture, assemble or install from these drawings. We built drawings and generate an exact construction process by embracing the latest technology.

The shop drawings offer the manufacturer’s or the contractor’s drawn version of the information shown in the construction documents.

The shop drawing shows typically detailed construction documents. It is drawn to explain the fabrication & installation of the items to the manufacturer’s production crew or contractor’s installation crews. The construction drawings come with one-stop solutions for all your shop and fabrication drawings.

The style of the shop drawing is different from that of the architect’s drawing. The shop drawing’s primary emphasis is on the particular product or installation. It excludes notation concerning other products and installations unless integration with the subject product is necessary.

Shop drawings use the data by architects & engineers in conjunction with the required standards. It translates the information that Contractors, Manufacturers & Fabricators can use. It produces the components, assembles them and installs on-site construction projects. The shop drawings contain more data than the architects/engineers drawing.

Shop Drawings are usually required in the Product industry for:

  • Elevators
  • Structural Steel Trusses
  • Windows
  • Cabinets
  • Air Handling Units

Shop Drawings are also required for the MEP trades in construction, such as:

  • Ductwork
  • Piping
  • Plumbing
  • Fire Alarm
  • Electrical
  • AV
  • Public Health

How can we assist with your Shop Drawing requirements?

We create a complete set of shop drawings for the product industry and the MEP trades in the construction industry. To guarantee high-quality drawing and efficient project management, we liaise with all parties directly. We obtain the latest and relevant information.

More often than not, we visit the site to compare the information on paper to the real-world environment.

We help our clients through the approval process. Getting a quick review is essential during the approval process. Any method facilitates while providing ample opportunity for comment and complete distribution should be considered. Although a procedure may be specified in the contract drawings, most architects and engineers are open to suggestions and innovations that speed up the process.

Shop drawings are required, in various forms, depending upon the practice of the architect and engineer. The specification may require a specific number of copies. Our shop drawings offer the best design 2d drawings, including constructions project that helps in availing maximum benefits with reducing fabrication reworks. An example distribution of the completed & corrected shop drawings includes the:

  • Owner-file or inspection copy
  • Architect-file copy
  • Architect-field copy or inspection copy
  • Consulting engineer-file copy
  • Consulting engineer-inspection copy
  • Contractor-file copy
  • Contractor-field copy
  • Supplier-original copy or one copy

To assist with your shop drawing requirements, I recommend the following steps:

  1. Clarify the Scope: Understand the specific details and requirements for the shop drawings. This includes the project specifications, dimensions, materials, and any special considerations.
  2. Gather Information: Collect all necessary information, such as architectural plans, engineering drawings, and relevant design documents.
  3. Assign Responsibilities: Determine who will be responsible for creating the shop drawings, whether it’s an in-house team or outsourced to a third party.
  4. Utilize Software Tools: Use appropriate software tools for creating detailed and accurate shop drawings. AutoCAD, Revit, and SketchUp are commonly used for this purpose.
  5. Follow Standards and Guidelines: Adhere to industry standards and guidelines for creating shop drawings to ensure accuracy and compliance with regulations.
  6. Collaborate with Stakeholders: Work closely with architects, engineers, contractors, and other stakeholders to ensure that the shop drawings meet their requirements and expectations.
  7. Review and Revise: Conduct thorough reviews of the shop drawings to identify any errors or discrepancies. Make necessary revisions until the drawings are accurate and complete.
  8. Submit for Approval: Once the shop drawings are finalized, submit them to the relevant parties for approval before proceeding with fabrication or construction.
  9. Document Control: Maintain proper documentation and version control for all shop drawings to track changes and updates throughout the project.
  10. Provide Support: Offer ongoing support and assistance throughout the fabrication and construction process to address any issues or changes that may arise.

How much do Shop Drawings cost?

We offer fixed price quotations as we understand that our clients have to work to budgets. We do not believe that hourly rates indicate the quality of work, time frame or overall cost. We usually provide quotations from the Structural Engineers Drawings, Architects Drawings or Concept Drawings. Our designer’s intent to offer excellent steel detailers, steel fabricators, contract documents and more to ensure compliance with design and specifications.

Our Expert Engineers & Drafters are versatile enough to use any software that your process might require. We have successfully managed Drafting and Design projects involving software such as AutoCAD, ArchiCAD, Solidworks, Revit Architecture, Architectural Desktop, Microstation, and 3D Studio Max.Drafting Design Tools and Software
