What is the difference between Shop Drawings and Issued For Construction (IFC) Drawings?

Drawings in any construction project play a very significant role. Drawing is jotting down your ideas with the help of conceptual lines. bringing forth the exact detailing of the construction project. Without the proper detailing of the structure of the building, it will be quite difficult for the contractors or the fabricators' to discover the actual figures, diameters, measurements, for the proper standing of the substructure. In making the construction process a success, several industries have to come together and complete the entire project.

Majorly, every industry that follows and needs a well-planned drawing setup ready, for the smooth functioning of the project. At our company, several professionals are working on the project, who has tremendous knowledge of different fields and software that are used, there within. Stating it roughly, there are around 12 construction Drawings that help initiate the process of drawing and thereby the construction process. There is always a deeper understanding between each sector of the company, in terms of handling the entire project efficiently. The drawings are specifically used to build residential, non-residential, commercial, and public properties.

A Drawing must contain constructive symbols, measurements, dimensions, uniformity in the linear lines, and other aspects that are conceptually important for the establishment. The owners of the project get a deeper and a more clear insight of their projects through drawing abstraction.
