Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors serves as the essential reference for designers preparing interior construction documents, explaining how to do a new construction, remodeling, or installation project. In a highly visual format, the book covers drafting fundamentals and conventions; drawing types, plans, and schedules; and computer-aided design (CAD). With expanded coverage of the preparation and communication of construction documents in digital formats, drawing interior perspectives, and more, the text also serves as an invaluable study reference for the contract documents section of the NCIDQ exam. A new companion Web Site supplies template grids for schedules and contract documents for practice exercises.?
