Construction Docs and Floor Plans

Learn highly sought after skills, and elevate yourself as an employable candidate in the construction trade by learning Construction Docs and Floor Plans.

A construction plan shows what you intend to build and what it will look like when you complete it. There are a variety of names for construction plans: blueprints, drawings, working drawings, and house plans. To the uninitiated, construction plans, with their many unusual symbols, can be daunting. As with any complex document, construction plans require skill to decipher. We teach you how to create these plans and how to incorporate the right codes to ensure you're communicating effectively with other teams on the building site.

Our program covers all the different types of construction plans, including examples, samples, helpful templates, checklists, and worksheets. We teach you how to get started with construction docs and discuss construction safety and quality plans. You’ll be a pro in under 12 months, we will show you the way.

You will learn about designing floorplans that include everything the interior designer needs to add their part, such as scale, window, door sizes, address, and north arrows. You will learn to read and understand exterior elevations that can also be important when you need to see the entire project and carry the design and flow throughout the entire building from the exterior and throughout the interior. Not to mention, you'll also need to learn about electrical plans and layouts so the designer can carefully convey where to put different fixtures and lights.

Here at SID, we teach the takeoff equation that is used an industry practice for architects. The takeoff equation helps the designer understand how much material to order, and how to price the material for financials and budgeting. You will learn how to read, and create a finish schedule. Installers will be able to create schedules and around your plans. A finish schedule is used on a project mainly by installers. It is a large format sheet that lists each room in the house and what is being placed on the walls, floors, ceilings, and built in elements like fireplaces. This includes paint, wallpaper, tile, hardwood, carpet, stone, etc. this ensures that the installer doesn't put product in the wrong location (example: if they put the floor tile in the bathroom that was meant for the kitchen.
