Assignment Brief and Guidance Unit 6 Construction Information (Drawing, Detailing, Specification)

Your employer, a medium-sized general contractor, has been commissioned to design and build a small building in a local industrial park. The design team within the company has prepared a preliminary set of outline design drawings, which provide general information about the proposed building, site and form.

The company (Client), who manufactures architectural ironmongery owns the above warehouse on an industrial park close to their administration offices in the nearby town. They have previously applied for an extension block to the above unit for additional warehousing which was given approval. Due to the recent pandemic, the general economic downturn has affected sales, so the Client has decided to streamline their operations.

They decide to sell their freehold offices which are located 3 miles away in town and are looking to resubmit plans for the above unit. The company are seeking approval to relocate their office staff to the above unit by creating office space, meeting rooms and reception area into the permitted extension (on the right of the visual).

Initially, sketch concepts are required to add a ground floor reception area and two meeting rooms to accommodate up to six people each and First floor offices for administration staff, managers, and directors. Existing details are provided below. LO1 Evaluate different types of construction information in the context of diverse project types.

Task 1

As a trainee Architectural Technician in the company you are tasked with the responsibility of preparing the construction information package that will allow the construction team to build the project. The package of information required includes the following:

  • Site plan
  • Floor plan
  • Elevations
  • Section/Details
  • Door and window schedules
  • Outline bill of quantities
  • Schedule of works

Task 2

As part of your training your employer wants to check your understanding of the requirements i.e. the reasons for the various drawings, specification and schedules that you have produced. 

So produce a Construction Information Glossary (approx. 750 words) that will explain the features and user of the construction information for different project types, describing them and giving examples of their use. By comparing related types of information, you will highlight the suitability of these for different types or scale of projects. Unit 6 Construction Information (Drawing, Detailing, Specification)
