Shop Drawing

and Drafting


We provide Shop Drawings for Contractors, Manufacturers & Fabricators

What are Shop Drawings?

Primarily, shop drawings required prefabricated parts or components. Drawings and specifications provided by architects and engineers are of the highest quality. They depict the general layout of major components with limited specifics. These drawings are not suitable for fabrication, manufacturing, assembly, or installation. Utilizing cutting-edge technology, we drew plans and devised a detailed construction procedure.
The shop drawings provide the manufacturer’s or contractor’s rendition of the construction documents’ information.
The shop drawing depicts construction documents that are typically detailed. It is designed to explain the fabrication and installation of the items to the manufacturer’s production and installation crews. The construction drawings include comprehensive shop and fabrication drawing solutions.
The style of the architect’s drawing differs from that of the shop drawing. The shop drawing focuses primarily on the specific product or installation. It excludes references to other products and installations unless their integration with the subject product is required.
Shop drawings incorporate the information provided by architects and engineers, as well as the applicable standards. It translates information for use by Contractors, Manufacturers, and Fabricators. It manufactures the components, assembles them, and installs them on-site. The shop drawings include more information than the architect/engineering drawings.
