Construction Working Drawings are the instruction manual for a construction project. The quality of the information available on the drawings has a direct correlation to the performance of the entire workforce responsible for the construction. Poor drawings are often the culprit of mistakes and expensive change orders.
Groninger Homes has a checklist that we use to ensure that needed information is provided on the drawings. Our approach seeks to understand the needs of each specific subcontractor or material supplier, so that they can perform at their best without misunderstanding or missing information. Our goal is to manage our projects in an organized fashion such that the trades prefer to work on our projects instead of those of other builders.
Construction drawings typically include the following pages plus additional sheets depending of the complexity of the home and necessity to show specific details.
Note: Most of the forms and information on our site are available to view if you provide us with an email address. We'd like to send you our monthly newsletter with information and resources about new homes and residential construction. Thanks for your interest in Groninger Custom Homes.
Green ComponentsThe challenge of implementing and documenting the requirements for green certification is a daunting task many builders and home owners have avoided. Additionally, the risk of overlooking the installation or verification of some features can lead to expensive changes or a loss of crucial green points.
Adding green features or certification to your project adds value and improves its performance and livability. The most beneficial approach is to start early and incorporate elements and "attitude" into the design. The process is an integrative whole-building approach where decisions made in one category may enhance or impede performance elsewhere. We can help you add green components to your drawings, specifications, estimate and construction schedule.
A preliminary analysis can be performed during the design phase so that goals can be established for development of the project. Let us show you the benefits and help you structure the process to suit your needs.
