Über diesen Titel
For busy architects like you who operate in a tight, deadline-driven environment, Fred Nashed’s Time-Saving Techniques for Architectural Construction Drawings is a real godsend. By introducing you to proven management techniques and offering you a number or effective shortcuts, this uniquely practical, self-contained handbook helps you dramatically shorten the time you’d otherwise spend laboring on construction drawings. The book begins by applying a project team management approach to the process of putting a set of construction drawings together, which enables you to plan and organize the sheets more efficiently, monitor the project more effectively, and allows all team members to fulfill their potential. The second chapter focuses on office drafting standards, including drafting guidelines, sheet formats, sheet numbering, overlay drafting, and dimensioning. Here, the book provides time-saving methods of assembling details, including the use of CADD, and offers numerous and some unique schedules and forms that can be used to quickly organize project information. In chapter three, the book helps you complete such time-consuming tasks as building code analysis and the proper use of the Underwriter’s Laboratories book, with the help of a Building Code Analysis Form and UL Column Fire Proofing Table — methodical, easy-to-use tools that help you quickly develop details. The chapter goes on to provide a quick reference to information on the building envelope and other useful technical items. The final section then provides you with a wealth of ready-to-use standard details that can be modified and "sticky-backed" to the project sheet, saving you hours of tedious work. The dozens and dozens of details range from stairs, ladders, and elevators to a variety of partitions to doors and door frames. Now you and every architect, project manager and team leader can focus your energies and your time on the more demanding aspects of your work when you take full advantage of the practical, one-stop coverage in Time-Saving Techniques for Architectural Construction Drawings.About the Author:
