ELPN: Drawings 101 - How to Read a Drawing Set

If you’ve ever gazed in despair at an enigmatic 1,000-page set of construction drawings, this training is for you! Drawing sets – the giant bundles of technical drawings used for permitting, construction, and maintenance – have a language and structure of their own. This training will help you navigate through them with confidence to find the information you need. We’ll cover the basics of how drawings are organized, dated, and revised. The speakers will also cover tags, schedules, and detail references so you can find doors, equipment, materials, and other common items. This training will culminate in a test of wits and strength in a drawing-reading exercise. The intended audience is folks who need to read drawings occasionally and don’t have a formal background in building design or construction, but all are welcome!
