Shop Drawings that are Clear & Comprehensive.

Typical layout of a shop drawing:

Cover sheet:
This sheet contains all the miscellaneous job information including: general notes, framing, door & door hardware information, window & window hardware notes, glass type descriptions, general contractor information, architect information, job location & glazing contractors information. (We can customize the cover page to include any additional needed information)

Key floor plan sheet(s):
The floor plans are generally drawn to a scale of 1/8″ = 1′-0″ (“D” size sheet) and contain the locations of all the work shown on the shop drawings. All work is keyed with an elevation tagging for location purposes.

Typical door schedules include all door dimensions, numbers and hardware sets if sets are provided. (“D” size sheet).

Please note, that this is our standard method of preparing shop drawings. The shop drawings can be drawn as per your standards but if you require more or less information than what is explained above, let us know. Any project that requires a unique approach will be custom designed for you.

Charrette Studios Inc. does not employ a licensed Engineer but we will gladly work in conjunction with an Engineering firm of your choice or we can refer you to one if the drawings require a PE stamp. The cost for such engineering would be handled by the customer & it would not be provided by Charrette Studios Inc. Charrette Studios Inc. billing would not include those Engineering costs.

Upon completion of shop drawings Charrette Studios Inc. can provide up to one set of 24”x 36” prints, 11” x 17” are also available upon request for no additional charge. Out of state customers may prefer to correspond using PDF drawings sent via email instead, whatever is more convenient & timely to fit your needs. Any additional sets of prints required will incur additional costs.
