Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors

Architecture/Interior Design

"Well thought out and addresses almost all of the major topics that interior designers need. I was elated with its comprehensiveness."
-Martin Zelnik

As interior designers assume an expanding role coordinating interior projects, producing construction drawings has become even more integral to their job. Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors: Basic Skills, Second Edition, provides interior designers with the information and skills they need to create construction documents that clearly communicate the interior space of new construction, remodeling, or installation projects.

In a highly visual format, complete with the authors' drawings as well as those from practicing professionals, this book acquaints the reader with drafting fundamentals and conventions; drawing types, plans, and schedules; and computer-aided design (CAD). The book is organized in two parts:

Part One discusses graphic language as a communication tool in design and architecture

Part Two details the construction document process, from overall concepts and organization to current practices and topics such as floor plans, sections, elevations, millwork, schedules, finish and furniture plans, lighting and electrical plans, HVAC and plumbing plans, and preparing specifications

This updated Second Edition features expanded coverage of the preparation and communication of construction documents in digital formats; drawing interior wall and partition types; field measuring existing buildings and interiors; as-built drawings; demolition plans; fire and life safety plans; sustainability and LEED standards; as well as a new companion Web site supplying template grids for schedules and contract documents for practice exercises.

An essential reference for designers and students preparing interior construction documents, Construction Drawings and Details for Interiors: Basic Skills, Second Edition will also serve as a valuable study reference for the contract documents section of the NCIDQ exam.

BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ IN THE SUBJECT CONSTRUCTION DRAWINGS. I HAVE BEEN IN THE INTERIOR DESIGN FIELD FOR TWO YEARS, AND THERE ARE TIMES THAT A REFERENCE BOOK IS NEEDED. THIS BOOK IS FOR BOTH THE STUDENT AND PROFESSIONAL. A MUST HAVE BOOK FOR YOUR LIBRARY. I MUST SAY THAT EVEN TWO COPIES WOULD BE A GREAT IDEA. THIS BOOK WILL NOT SIT ON YOUR SHELVE FOR IT IS FULL OF HELPFUL INSIGHT.

Great for an overall drafting and design book May 3 2012
By K. Coffman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for students, educators, or anyone who needs a quick reference to review drawing and detailing all parts of the interior of a space. I'm an educator and have found this unquestionably my go-to guide when I need to give examples to my students of how to draw or detail a particular feature, how to draft it correctly, and heck, for me when I haven't done a particular drawing/detail in a while. It is not a deep/in-depth book, but a great reference covering all of the basics of drafting styles in interior design. It's super quick and easy to use and written in an intuitive manner. Instead of search through all of the books on my selves to assemble a compilation of what this covers I can just look at this book. It is a great reference for quick use. One of my favorites that I use all the time.

Must have for your reference library Jan. 18 2011
By I do my research. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Covers the right information at the right level of detail. It takes you through so many of the basics, from tools and methods to regulations and even covers some of the debates within the design community. I would wager to say that whether you're a pro or a wanna be pro that this book will have something useful in it for you.

Good for Interns and Those Unfamiliar with Assembling Construction Documents Sept. 21 2014
By Paul - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I would still consider myself a novice on a lot of levels, so I purchased this book based one all of the great reviews. In terms of my experience, I've interned for almost 8 months and have worked in the architectural office full-time for almost two years.

I would say that I was familiar with at least 90% of the content in the book, and that this book would serve those best who have no office experience or any real experience with construction documents. If you are new to the professional practice of architecture and production (assembling construction documents that will be viewed by contractors and clients), purchase this book--you will find that it clearly describes the many kinds of drawings you will be working with (plans, reflected ceiling plans, equipment plans, different kinds of consultant drawings, et cetera). I really wish someone would have given me this book when I first started actually working in an office--I would have been far more helpful to the company much sooner.

If you have more than 8-12 months worth of actual office experience, I would say that this book will not be as useful to you. You will have (hopefully) become familiar with drawings enough that this book will not offer any novel information. I still give this book five stars because I can see this book being a godsend to those who are new to the industry, because of its clarity, brevity and relevance (even though at times it does sound a bit dated). It's a great resource I plan on sharing with all interns in our office.
