Keep making progress

A full set will be due for upload to blackboard by Sunday night March 26th – the following is an indication of what you should have completed by now.  I will clarify a drawings list in class and will review what is to be shown on different sheets.

It is important that you all keep making progress on three fronts at the same time:

  • Research your building assembly
  • Build your Revit Model
  • Layout your drawings and details on sheets

At this point everyone should have the following complete:


  • Grids and Levels
  • Floor Slabs as follows:
    • Basement Slab on Grade
    • Level 1 solid concrete slab 8″ thick
    • Level 2 to the roof – 5″ slab (concrete on metal decking
  • Foundation Wall from Basement to First Floor
    • Includes linear footing 12 x 36″
  • Concrete columns from Basement to First Floor
    • Includes isolated footings
    • Match the depth of isolated footing at the perimeter to the footing of the foundation wall.
  • Concrete Beams supporting the first floor
    • (use the rule of 16 to size them correctly)
    • For the structural drawing the beam tags should display
  • Steel Columns for Level 1
    • You can extend the columns from Level 1 to the Roof
    • Add steel beams to support the second floor
      (we will work on sizing these later)
  • Optional – copy your steel beams up to all floors above
  • Add exterior wall as a place holder.  Use a generic wall about 5-10 inches thick depending on your wall (do some research to determine)
    • The exterior wall should run from Level 1 to 3 feet above the Roof.


  • All architectural floor plans on titleblocks
  • All structural floor plans on titleblocks
  • All main exterior elevations on titleblocks
  • Two full building sections through your building
    • Note:  Exterior elevations do not show the foundation walls – these will show only on the full building sections.  Scale of your plans, exterior elevations and full building sections should match.  (1/8 or 1/4 is most common)
  • Your first wall section – this will become a detail.  This will be done at either 1/2″ or 3/4″ scale.
