2.


Analyze different drawings and see how information is referenced throughout a set of Construction Documents.
3.


Evaluate the similarities between all sets of construction documents submitted for building permits.

4.


Recognize the need for consistency in presenting information in all types of Construction Documents.
5.


Gain experience understanding how 3D model presentations within a set of construction documents makes the construction documents easier to understand the project.

What you learn: This class expands upon the materials which were learned in PFC 101, Introduction to Blueprint Reading. In this course, you will focus on a representative sample drawings from a mixed-use, hotel/retail/parking building. We will go through architectural, engineering drawings as well as review some project specifications.

Please look at the "Syllabus" section to see the specific topics covered in the course.

Prerequisite: PFC 101, Introduction to Blueprint Reading, or equivalent. All students are expected to have a working ability to read in English and an interest in learning basic drafting procedures, the development of Construction Documents and relevant terminology.

Course Description: This is a hands-on intermediate course in Blueprint reading.

Understanding how to read a set of construction documents is important to people working in the construction industry.

"Blueprint" is the historic name for construction documents. Contractors build the design and follow the construction processes detailed in the "blueprints."

The course will utilize lectures (videos), hands-on demonstrations and practical exercises to familiarize you with the art of blueprint reading for a mixed-use commercial project.

The course will review set a set of construction documents for a mixed-use commercial project which includes a hotel, retail and parking.

At the conclusion of the course, you will be able to make the connections and references between multiple documents contained in a set of blueprint drawings and will be qualified to enroll in the AutoCAD courses.

Course Project: Reviewing the construction documents for a mixed-use commercial project.

Grading: Class participants will receive a grade based on their competency proven in the assessments (quizzes and tests) and their participation in the discussion forums.
