Lay Out the Section, Stage 3: Drawing Finishing Materials, Introduction, Stage 5: Dimensioning, Soil Considerations, Stage 6: Lettering Notes, Types of Foundations, Stage 7: This sixth edition of Architectural Drafting and Design is a practical, comprehensive textbook that is easy to use and understand.

The content can be used as presented by following a logical sequence of learning activities for residential and light commercial architectural drafting and design, or the chapters can be rearranged to accommodate alternate formats for traditional or individualized instruction. Although this publication is not conclusive, with respect to ADDA standards, it should be considered a key reference tool in pursuit of a professional design-drafting career.

The mission of ICC is to provide the highest quality codes, standards, products, and services for all concerned with the safety and performance of the building environment. This unified approach to building codes enhances safety, efficiency, and affordability in the construction of buildings.

The Code Council is also dedicated to innovation, sustainability, and energy efficiency. Practical Architectural Drafting and Afchitectural provides a practical approach to architectural drafting as it relates to current standard practices.

The emphasis on standardization is an excellent and necessary foundation of drafting training as well as for implementing a common approach to drafting nationwide.

Architectural Drafting and Design

After students become professional drafters, this text will serve as a valuable desk reference. Realistic Chapters contain professional examples, illustrations, step-by-step layout techniques, drafting problems, and related tests. The examples demonstrate recommended drafting presentation with actual architectural drawings used for reinforcement.

The correlated text explains drafting practices and provides useful information for knowledge building and skill development. Step-by-step layout methods provide a logical approach to beginning and finishing complete sets of working drawings. This textbook explains how to prepare formal drawings from design sketches by providing the learner with basic guidelines for drafting layout and minimum design and code requirements in a knowledge-building format.


One concept is learned before the next is introduced. The concepts and skills learned from one chapter to the next allow students to prepare complete sets of working drawings for residential and light commercial construction projects.

Problem assignments are presented in order of difficulty and in a manner that provides students with a wide variety of architectural drafting experiences. Real-World Architectural Problems The problems are presented as preliminary designs or design sketches in a manner that is consistent with actual architectural office practices. It is not enough for students to duplicate drawings from given assignments; they must be able to think through the process of drawing development with a foundation based on how drawing and construction components are put into practice.

The goals and objectives of each problem assignment are consistent with recommended evaluation criteria based on the progression of learning activities. The drafting problems and tests recommend that work be done using drafting skills on actual drafting materials with either professional manual or computer-aided drafting equipment. A problem solution or test answer should be accurate and demonstrate proper drafting practice. Applications Special emphasis has been placed on providing realistic drafting problems.

Problems are presented as design sketches or preliminary drawings in a manner that is consistent with architectural practices. The problems have Preface been supplied by architects and architectural designers. Each problem solution is based on the step-by-step layout procedures provided in the chapter discussions. Problems are given in order of complexity to expose students to a variety of drafting experiences. Problems require students to go through the same thought and decision-making processes that a professional drafter faces daily, including scale and paper size selection, view layout, dimension placement, section placement, and many other activities.

Problems can be solved using manual or computer-aided drafting, as determined by individual course guidelines. Chapter tests provide complete coverage of each chapter and can be used for student evaluation or as review. Illustrations Drawings and photos are used liberally throughout this textbook to strengthen the concepts presented.

Fullcolor treatment enhances the clarity. Abundant stepby-step illustrations take students through the detailed stages of the drafting process for each application. The step-by-step illustrations are created using computeraided drafting for the highest accuracy and quality.

The complete discussion of CADD introduces the workstation environment, terminology, drafting techniques, and sample drawings. Although individual course guidelines may elect to solve architectural drafting problems using either computer-aided or manual drafting equipment, the concepts remain the same, with the only difference being the method of presentation. Construction Techniques and Building Codes Construction techniques differ throughout the country.

This text clearly acknowledges the difference in construction methods and introduces the student to the format used to make a complete set of working drawings for each method of construction. Students may learn to prepare drawings from each construction method or, more commonly, for the specific construction techniques that are used in their locality.

The problem assignments are designed to provide drawings that involve a variety of construction alternatives. To provide oversight srchitectural the wide range of construction methods and materials used throughout the country, Preface the model codes written by the International Code Council ICC are referenced throughout this textbook.

Although many municipalities have adopted their own versions of these codes, the use of these model codes provides a firm background before exploring local variations. Codes and Standards Compliance Each chapter is based on information provided by the following major industry leaders: This section lists Web sites for companies or organizations that offer materials, services, and standards related to the chapter content. The following is an example of how the Additional Resources are presented in the textbook: Chapter Tests Chapter tests are found at the end of each chapter.


The chapter tests allow you to review or test your ddition of the related chapter content, depending on your course objectives. Open the related link and answer the questions electronically, unless otherwise directed by your instructor.

LEED rating system published by the U. Going Green Protecting the environment is one of the most important worldwide issues today. A new flagship feature called Going Green is found throughout this textbook, providing current, practical, and experimental energy-efficient xvi architectural design and construction techniques that result in a significant reduction in energy consumption.

As dedign building industry grows wlan meet the demands of our increasing population, we must take care of the environment and allow for current and future development. As a student, it is very important for you to learn what is available today and to find ways to improve energy efficiency in architectural design and construction into the future in an effort to protect the earth. National and local programs have been established to meet this need.

A leading program is often referred to as green building. Green Building Council USGBC is a key organization developed to promote building design and construction that is environmentally responsible and healthy, while allowing construction to remain profitable. The following is part of one of the Going Green features found in this edition: Preface by a CD icon in appropriate locations throughout this textbook. The supplemental reference material provides optional learning opportunities.
