We create Shop Drawings for Contractors, Manufacturers & Fabricators
What are Shop Drawings?
Shop Drawings are usually required for prefabricated parts/components.The drawings and specifications provided by architects and engineers are a top level drawing, showing the general design of major components with limited detail. One could not manufacture, fabricate or assemble/install from these limited drawings.
Shop drawings use the information by Architects & Engineers in conjunction with the required standards and translate this into information that can be used by Contractors, Manufacturers & Fabricators to produce the components, assemble them and install them on site. The Shop Drawings therefore contain far more detail than the Architects or Engineers Drawing.
Shop Drawings are usually required in the Product industry for:
- Structural Steel Trusses
- Air Handling Units
Shop Drawings are also required for the MEP trades in construction such as:
- Fire Alarm
- Public Health
How can we assist with your Shop Drawing requirements?
We create full sets of Shop Drawings for the Product Industry as well as the MEP trades in the construction industry. To guarantee a high quality drawing and efficient Project Management we liaise with all parties directly (if required) to obtain the latest and relevant information.
More often then not, Jensen Consulting will visit site to compare the information on paper to the real world environment.
How much do Shop Drawings cost?
Jensen Consulting offer fixed price quotations as we understand that our clients have to work to budgets. We do not believe that hourly rates give any indication of quality of work, time frame or overall cost. We are usually able to provide quotations from the Structural Engineers Drawings, Architects Drawings or Concept Drawings.
