Construction Document Production
Construction Document Production
At International Service Partners (ISP), we understand that each construction project is unique, but the path to architectural success is well-defined. Our architectural engineering and construction team is well-versed in helping you with every step of the construction process, encompassing the entire scope of the project. From floor plans & elevations to life safety calculations to wall sections to details, ISP progresses each project along while the AOR stays in complete control. No matter what design software your team uses (Revit, AutoCAD, ArchiCAD, Chief Architect, and more), the ISP team will create top-quality CD sets with your standards. At International Service Partners, our goal is to be an extension of your team! Here for you, to assist with a wide range of architectural and engineering services. All at a fraction of the cost, but without sacrificing quality!
The Process of Design: Construction Documents
Schematic design is the key principle for architectural engineering and construction success. This plan outlines the general idea or goal for the project, while the design development team will work in conjunction to refine it before the project manager takes on the scope of the project. Construction documents fill in construction specifications to allow the project to progress through the different stages.
In essence, the creation of the construction documents serves two major functions: to apply for and receive all necessary permits required for the project. While the design does not change between these two stages, two CD sets will need to be created — the Permit Set and the Issue for Construction Set. These documents bridge the gap between safety code compliance, contractor regulations, and design elements for functionality.
Construction Documents We Assist With
The CD sets consist of a variety of documentation including drawings, specifications, contract requirements, procurement requirements, modifications and addenda, and resource drawings including renderings. Here is a list of construction documents that ISP can assist with:
- Site Plan or Survey
- Demolition Floor Plan(s) & Elevation(s)
- Foundation Plan(s)
- Floor Plan(s)
- Framing Plan(s)
- Exterior Elevations
- Roof Plan(s)
- Building and/or Wall Sections
- Title sheet specs
- MEP details
- Structural details
- Electrical & Lighting Plans
- Plan & Section Details
- Door & Window Schedules
If building interiors are included in the scope of the project, then the following drawings may be included:
- Interior Elevations (bath accessory placement and wall tile layouts)
- Enlarged Floors Plans (plumbing and floor tile layouts)
- Selection Schedule (cataloging tile, countertop, and plumbing sections)
- Material, Fixture, and Appliance Specification
- Cabinetry details
- And more
With so many details that go into the creation of the construction documents, strong attention must be given to avoid any setbacks or delays due to incomplete drawings or information.
