Whether you’re building a tree house in the back yard or a skyscraper in Dubai, time and money will be important factors. The best way to save on both is with accurate and legible floor plan drafting.
When drafting a floor plan, each small detail is essential as mistakes made at one point can expand as the project develops out from that point. Every factor in the construction and materials must be considered when drafting an accurate floor plan. For example, a bathroom drywall will be a different thickness than a living room drywall, so this small difference in measurement must be included in an accurate floor plan. Differences caught at the planning stage are much easier to fix than when they are caught at the construction phase. Floor plans that are meticulously drawn and reviewed will save on revisions during the construction phase that can be costly and cause delays.
Floor plans are vital at each phase of the construction and each contractor and subcontractor will be working from these finely detailed plans, so legibility also is key. For instance, an electrical contractor will need to be aware of areas the plumbing contractor will be working, so their paths do not accidentally cross. All this is considered in the drafting of the floor plans, so contractors need to be able to read and understand these details as they do their work – again avoiding costly changes and delays.
The last factor that can affect your construction project is the speed at which floor plans can be drafted. Getting the floor plans created quickly during the design phase is important, but so is making changes that might occur during construction, as clients frequently request changes. When changes are necessary, new floor plans can be adjusted quickly and presented to all the parties involved in construction to ensure no delays and costly mistakes from someone working off an older floor plan.
