SHOP DRAWINGS are drawings, schedules,
diagrams, and other related data to illustrate a
material, a product, or a system for some portion of
the work prepared by the construction contractor,
subcontractor, manufacturer, distributor, or supplier.
Product data include brochures, illustrations,
performance charts, and other information by which
the work will be judged. As an SW, you will be
required to draft shop drawings for minor shop and
field projects. You can draw shop items, such as doors,
cabinets, and small portable structures (prefabricated
berthing quarters, and modifications of existing
buildings), or perhaps you will be drawing from
portions of design drawings, specifications, or from
freehand sketches given by the design engineer.
A WORKING DRAWING (also called project
drawing) is any drawing that furnishes the information
required by a Steelworker to manufacture a part or a
crew to erect a structure. It is prepared from a freehand
sketch or a design drawing. Complete information is
presented in a set of working drawings, complete
enough that the user will require no further
information. Project drawings include all the drawings
necessary for the different Seabee ratings to complete
the project. These are the drawings that show the size,
quantity, location, and relationship of the building
A complete set of project drawings consists of
general drawings, detail drawings, and assembly
drawings. General drawings consist of plans (views
from above) and elevations (side or front views)
drawn on a relatively small defined scale, such as 1/8
inch = 1 foot. Most of the general drawings are drawn
in orthographic projections, although sometimes
details can be shown in isometric projections. Detail
drawings show a particular item on a larger scale than
that of the general drawing in which the item appears,
or it can show an item too small to appear at all on a
general drawing. Assembly drawings are either an
exterior or a sectional view of an object showing the
details in the proper relationship to one another.
Usually, assembly drawings are drawn to a smaller
scale than are detail drawings. This procedure
provides a check on the accuracy of the design and
detail drawings and often discloses errors.
RED-LINED DRAWINGS are the official
contract drawings that you will mark up during
construction to show as-built conditions. Red-lined
drawings are marked in color red to indicate either
a minor design change or a field adjustment.
AS-BUILT DRAWINGS are the original contract
drawings (or sepia copies) that you will change to
show the as-built conditions from the red-lined
drawings. Upon the completion of the facilities, the
construction contractor or the Naval Military
Construction Force (NMCB) is required to provide the
ROICC with as-built drawings, indicating
construction deviations from the contract drawings.
All of the as-built marked-up prints must reflect exact
as-built conditions and must show all features of the
project as constructed. After the completion of the
project, as-built marked-up prints are transmitted by
the ROICC to the engineering field division (EFD).
ORDER OF PROJECT DRAWINGS
Project drawings for buildings and structures are
arranged in the following order:
TITLE SHEET AND INDEXContain
specific project title and an index of drawings.
(Used only for projects containing 60 or more
SITE or PLOT PLANS-Contain either site or
plot plans or both, as well as civil and utility
plans. For small projects, this sheet should
include an index of the drawings.
LANDSCAPE AND IRRIGATION (if
ARCHITECTURAL (including interior design
MECHANICAL (heating, ventilation, and air
