Architectural Working Drawings, Fourth Edition provides clear explanations of why these drawings are required, what they must contain to be relevant, the importance of understanding drawing intent and content, and how to combine individual drawings into meaningful and construction-ready sets. Using hundreds of real-world examples from a geographically diverse base, this book covers everything from site plans, floor plans, and interior and exterior elevations to wiring schematics, plumbing specifications, and miscellaneous details. Nearly 500 illustrations provide examples of the best and the worst in architectural working drawings.
