Flatworld Provided Structural Drafting Services for an Award-winning Design Giant

Case Study on Structural Drafting Services for Design Firm

The Client

The client is an award-winning design firm based in the United States (Houston, Texas) and has helped clients build cost-efficient, unique, and attractive buildings for 20 years. Their focus currently includes cloud-based 3D models and building information modeling (BIM) so customers have mobile access to construction drawings as needed.

Challenges Faced by the Client

The client needed structural drafting services for preparing architectural drawings, which were required to support the construction of a care facility involving 35 interior elevations. They initially supplied scanned blueprints and drawings with handwritten instructions and markups.

The project involved three significant challenges -

  • Illegible handwritten instructions
  • Communication issues
  • Multiple elevations meant extra care was required to ensure building safety

FWS' Solution

Flatworld Solutions' engineering and drafting specialists developed the solution, which consisted of the following steps -

  • The team included one account manager, one quality analyst and two drafters
  • The team received PDFs of scanned drawings from the client and these were extracted to AutoCAD for drafting tasks
  • Drafting work was initially delayed due to illegible markups on client-provided drawings and blueprints
  • The team devoted extra time for clarification of markups
  • The quality analyst ensured that updated markups were accurately applied
  • Drafters worked 3 to 4 hours on each drawing to reflect handwritten change markups
  • Some communication issues impacted initial delivery. To overcome the resulting delays, additional team effort was needed to produce final deliverables on time
  • After incorporating markups, the AutoCAD files were converted to PDF format files and delivered to the client via SharePoint
