A Case Study On Floor Plan Modification Using Red Line Markup

Floor Plan Modification Case Study

The Client

Flatworld Solutions was contacted by a company that offers both real estate agent and commercial property management services. The client was wanted help in marking up a floor plan to a shopping mall.

The client needed someone to create a key (markups that show key characteristics of a property) that indicated certain features, including:

  • New Walls and Doors
  • Floor Drain
  • Elevation Indicators

It was crucial for the client to find a CAD designer / company who could draft a detailed, accurate floor plan that was clearly defined and ready for any contractor. The client selected Flatworld Solutions because of previous satisfied experiences for other services within the company.

The Challenge

The initial floor plan had several issues. It was inaccurate as a whole, and contained several errors that could potentially cause setbacks in the accuracy of the work. Some of the challenges included a key for the floor drains that did not directly correspond with the bold solid lines, as well as markings (such as those around the restrooms) that were indicated as new, but were not marked as new on the key.

The team at Flatworld Solutions was challenged to find all of these errors and fix them with perfect accuracy.

The Solution

Flatworld Solutions assigned 2 drafters to work exclusively on the project. These drafters remained in contact with the client in order to determine more accurate details, and to find and fix the errors. The drafters then created a new design using AutoCAD software - one that more accurately showed the changes that had been made to the property.

Once completed, the team provided the appropriate key to the drawings. They also provided a detailed 3D rendering for reference.

The Results

The team was able to achieve a 99% accuracy, which met the client's benchmark perfectly. Despite the challenges, the project was completed in just 4 days. The client was highly satisfied, and immediately provided 5 more, similar projects to Flatworld Solutions, and has continued to send similar projects ever since.
