How To Read Construction Drawings
The class will cover the basics of reading construction plans primarily for infrastructure improvement projects including but not limited to: Property lines, subdivision plans (includes plan and profiles for roadway, stormwater drainage, sanitary sewer), site plans, conservation commission plans, and other plans that may be considered appropriate.
Participants will learn to:
• Use a scale
• Read notes
• Understand topography
• Read plan and profile sheets
• Interpret property lines (metes and bounds).
This class is designed for anyone who needs to find information in a set of plans. From new foremen and inspectors, to office personnel who answer questions from the public, this introductory class breaks the code.
Please bring a calculator (nothing fancy is needed) and a pencil.
