Technical drawings are a graphic representation of the real world or planned structures and buildings. They are an essential tool for communication between designers and developers that explain complex systems and ideas.
Engineering drawings are different than architectural drawings. Artistic drawings express emotions, and creative architectural drawings aim to plan spaces for comfort and ease of use. An architect will deal with building presentation and aesthetics—how the building fits into the surroundings to be pleasing for the eye.
Contrary to artistic drawings, structural engineering drawings deal with scientific and objective problems. Technical drawing aims to present a solution to the technical problem with clarity, leaving no space for ambiguity. To keep the high quality of our drafts, at Clear Engineering Solutions Ltd we use the most recognised drafting standards in the UK under BS8888-2017.
For every project, we sketch a set of high-quality design CAD drawings to include all of the following:
- All critical dimensions with tolerances (Δ+/-)
- Steel profile sizes
- Steel and timber connection details
- Masonry details
- Applicable side notes
- Customised notes for contractor
- Scales and perspectives
- We ususally use 1:50 scale for plan view
- 1:20 for section view
- 1:10 for steel and timber connection detials
- Details of the client, architect, contractor
- All drawings are in metric system (milimiters, meters, kilometers)
