Architectural Drafting in Southwest Florida

Architectural Drafting Services that Help Contractors Communicate Better

We’ve found architectural drafting to be a major benefit in our construction projects. Nothing is more frustrating than trying to explain a simple building feature or layout to a client who can’t visualize the options. A picture is worth a thousand words, right?

If your client is confused, then you can’t keep moving forward on your project. If your team is confused, they’ll waste time working in the wrong direction. 

Architectural drafting is an essential tool for contractors in Southwest Florida (and everywhere else). By using our architectural drafting services, contractors can visualize the project and communicate with their team more effectively. Most importantly, they produce projects with accurate specs and jaw-dropping results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Contractors use a variety of architectural drawings to help them visualize and build structures. Some of the most common types of architectural drafting used by contractors include:

  • Site plans: Site plans show the overall layout of the property, including the location of the building, driveways, walkways, and other features.
  • Floor plans: Floor plans show the layout of each floor of the building, including the dimensions of the rooms, the location of doors and windows, and the placement of furniture and equipment.
  • Elevations: Elevations show the exterior of the building from different sides, including the roofline, windows, and doors.
  • Sections: Sections show a cutaway view of the building, revealing the interior construction.
  • Details: Details show close-up views of specific features, such as windows, doors, and electrical outlets.
  • 3D models: 3D models are becoming increasingly popular as they allow contractors to visualize the project in three dimensions.

The specific types of architectural drafting that a contractor uses will vary depending on the size and complexity of the project. For example, a small residential project may only require site plans and floor plans. But, a large commercial project may require all of the types of drafting mentioned above.
