DESIGN AND ENGINEEERING
What are Engineered design drawings?
An engineered drawing is a type of technical drawing used to define the requirements for engineering products or components. Typically, the purpose of an engineering drawing is to clearly and accurately capture all geometric features of a product or component so that a manufacturer or engineer can produce the required item. It may also describe the process of making the item, may be used to convey engineering ideas during the design process, or may provide a record of an existing item.
Rather than being an illustration, an engineering drawing is intended to describe the size and shape of an item and may provide information regarding acceptable variations, load limits, materials and any other information that can help give a complete understanding of an item.
When are Engineered design drawings required?
During any kind of construction or renovation to a building\system. Design drawings are usually required by the Authority having Jurisdiction (AHJ). The AHJ overlooks construction projects for the township or municipality. They enforces applicable building codes and standards to make sure the work is being done correctly safely. Drawings are engineered for either contractors or for the AHJ to review then approve once work is completed. It is important these drawings are clear and informative so that both the contractor that is installing the system or equipment understands what is required and for the Authority to ensure it meets all applicable codes and standards.
