Architectural/Structural Steel Drawings, Continued
DETAIL DRAWINGS: Detail drawings show features that do not appear or
appear too small on any other type of drawing. They are drawn at
considerably larger scale than other drawings.
Include detail drawings
whenever the information given in the plans, elevations, and wall sections are
insufficiently detailed to guide a craftsman on the job.
SPECIFICATION DRAWINGS: Specification drawings are not really
drawings at all, but a list of written specifications. Specifications usually
begin with a section on general conditions or description of the building
including type of foundation, types of windows, character of framing,
utilities installations, and so on. A list of definitions of terms used in the
specs comes next, followed by certain routine declarations of responsibility.
