home » Building Elevation Drawings
A 2D building elevation drawing is typically drawn as an orthographic projection of the face of an existing building. For information on 3D drawings, please visit: 3D Laser Scanning.
The level of detail contained in a building elevation drawing is dependent upon the scope of work that calls for the drawing. The scope of work for every project is different, so one project may call for a high level of detail, while another project may not.
"Facade" is another term for "building face" or "building elevation".
"Diagrammatic" is another term for "semi-scale" or "proportional". The focus of diagrammatic drawings is the relationship of the parts, with respect to the whole.
The procedure to create building elevation drawings is a simple two-step process. First, field measurements and photos are taken. Secondly, a CAD drawing is created from the field information.
The field equipment used will vary depending on the level of detail required.
