Shop drawings, typically produced by fabricators or manufacturers, are typically required for prefabricated components such as elevators, structural steel, trusses, pre-cast concrete, windows, appliances, cabinets, air handling units, millwork, sheet metal ducting, piping, plumbing, fire protection, and electrical equipment. Shop drawings can also be a manufacturer’s or a contractor’s drawn version of information shown in construction documents, and typically show more detail than construction documents.
Design Presentation is a US-based leading provider of Shop Drawings to Fortune 500 companies, government entities and thousands of small businesses around the world. We offer all types of shop drawing outsourcing services like curtain wall shop drawings, window shop drawings and entrance shop drawings. We provide shop and coordination drawings for ductwork fabrication, plumbing, HVAC piping, and electrical coordination.
A good shop drawing should include all the necessary details (drawn in AutoCAD or any other CAD format you specify) to describe your intent. If it needs to explain the fabrication and/or installation of items to the manufacturer’s production crew or contractor’s installation crews, then the drawing is usually very different from that used by the architect. The details will be generated from architectural plans and the developer’s instructions as to which system type to incorporate. All dimensions and details will be drawn as shown on your original sketch, unless otherwise instructed.
Our process involves inputs from contractors and suppliers who design the components for which they are responsible, and reconciling them with the inputs from the project architect, who designs every single connection and interaction between system and components. Our shop drawings show how the architect’s design is intended to be implemented by the contractor.
Send us your scanned sketches and we will process them and send you the resulting shop drawings within 48 hours, and even sooner if you are in a rush.
