An electrical drawing, is a type of technical drawing that shows information about power,lighting,and communication for an engineering or architectural project.Any electrical working drawing consists of “lines,symbols,dimensions,and notations to accurately convey an engineering design to the workers,who install the electrical system on the job”.
A complete set of working drawings for the average electrical system in large projects usually consists of:
* A plot plan showing the buildings location and outside electrical wirings and other information in combination with construction drawings.
* Floor plans showing the location of electrical systems on every floor.
* Power-riser diagrams showing panel boards.
* Control wiring diagrams Schedule.
* New houses will show the water service location and pipe size on the site /grading plan.
* Renovations and additions to existing dwellings may continue to use the existing water service.
* Plumbing riser diagrams are not required,except for unusual features such as solar water heating systems.
* All projects will show plumbing fixture layouts as part of the architectural plans.
- Electrical Layout Drawings
When you are planning any kind of development having a drawing that shows every last detail will save you money in the long run. When you are planning a new kitchen for example getting the right number of switch sockets and there exact positions on the wall above the worktop, behind the fridge or inside a cupboard really should be designed sooner rather than later. Design changes during any construction are expensive but in a kitchen where the cables need to be chased into the walls and then tiled or painted is often very messy and complicated and therefore very expensive. A simple layout showing location of sockets, switches lights and consumer units can be an invaluable tool and save you a lot of money and time during the construction.
- Heating & Plumbing Layout Drawings
As with electrical work, plumbing and heating is better carried out during the main construction. Alterations after completion or changes to the existing layout are often followed by an expensive invoice. We strongly recommend that any work for your heating and plumbing is worked out on paper first rather than left to the building contractor on site. Hiding ugly pipes with boxing in a room is not a great solution when you consider that pipes could be inserted into a floor or ceiling void if the designer is instructed to oversee these elements as well. Plumbing and electrical layout drawings can typically be produced as part of the whole design package or added not too much later than a few weeks before construction starts on site.
