An electrical drawing, is a type of technical drawing that shows information about power,lighting,and communication for an engineering or architectural project.Any electrical working drawing consists of "lines,symbols,dimensions,and notations to accurately convey an engineering design to the workers,who install the electrical system on the job".
* A plot plan showing the buildings location and outside electrical wirings and other information in combination with construction drawings.
* Floor plans showing the location of electrical systems on every floor.
* Power-riser diagrams showing panel boards.
* Control wiring diagrams Schedule.
* New houses will show the water service location and pipe size on the site /grading plan.
* Renovations and additions to existing dwellings may continue to use the existing water service.
* Plumbing riser diagrams are not required,except for unusual features such as solar water heating systems.
* All projects will show plumbing fixture layouts as part of the architectural plans.
Electrical Layout Drawings
you are planning any kind of development having a drawing that shows every last
detail will save you money in the long run. When you are planning a new kitchen
for example getting the right number of switch sockets and there exact
positions on the wall above the worktop, behind the fridge or inside a cupboard
really should be designed sooner rather than later. Design changes during any
construction are expensive but in a kitchen where the cables need to be chased
into the walls and then tiled or painted is often very messy and complicated
and therefore very expensive. A simple layout showing location of sockets,
switches lights and consumer units can be an invaluable tool and save you a lot
of money and time during the construction.
· Heating & Plumbing Layout Drawings
with electrical work, plumbing and heating is better carried out during the
main construction. Alterations after completion or changes to the existing
layout are often followed by an expensive invoice. We strongly recommend that
any work for your heating and plumbing is worked out on paper first rather than
left to the building contractor on site. Hiding ugly pipes with boxing in a
room is not a great solution when you consider that pipes could be inserted
into a floor or ceiling void if the designer is instructed to oversee these
elements as well. Plumbing and electrical layout drawings can typically be
produced as part of the whole design package or added not too much later than a
few weeks before construction starts on site.
