technical drawings of a new build

What Can I Expect from a Technical Drawing for My New Build or Renovation Project?

Technical drawings are a visual representation of a building project that provide highly detailedinsight into the functionality and construction of the building. These drawings serve as the build’s connective thread that links conceptual design and the practical execution of a new build project.

Ensuring compliance and efficiency

A key aspect of technical drawings is ensuring compliance with building regulations. It's advisable to have these drawings reviewed by your local authority or an approved inspector. This step ensures that your project adheres to standards regarding fire safety, structural integrity, thermal efficiency, acoustics, drainage, sustainability, and electrical safety.
