Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors

Architecture/Interior Design

"Well thought out and addresses almost all of the major topics that interior designers need. I was elated with its comprehensiveness."
–Martin Zelnik

As interior designers assume an expanding role coordinating interior projects, producing construction drawings has become even more integral to their job. Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors: Basic Skills, Second Edition, provides interior designers with the information and skills they need to create construction documents that clearly communicate the interior space of new construction, remodeling, or installation projects.

In a highly visual format, complete with the authors′ drawings as well as those from practicing professionals, this book acquaints the reader with drafting fundamentals and conventions; drawing types, plans, and schedules; and computer–aided design (CAD). The book is organized in two parts:

Part One discusses graphic language as a communication tool in design and architecture

Part Two details the construction document process, from overall concepts and organization to current practices and topics such as floor plans, sections, elevations, millwork, schedules, finish and furniture plans, lighting and electrical plans, HVAC and plumbing plans, and preparing specifications

This updated Second Edition features expanded coverage of the preparation and communication of construction documents in digital formats; drawing interior wall and partition types; field measuring existing buildings and interiors; as–built drawings; demolition plans; fire and life safety plans; sustainability and LEED standards; as well as a new companion Web site supplying template grids for schedules and contract documents for practice exercises.

An essential reference for designers and students preparing interior construction documents, Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors: Basic Skills, Second Edition will also serve as a valuable study reference for the contract documents section of the NCIDQ exam.
