Drawings for Aluminum Cladding & Glazing

AST Architectural Drawing Services
Professional CAD Shop Drawings for the Aluminum Cladding & Glazing Industry

Shop drawings are extremely important to the contract glazing & aluminium cladding industry. The drawings show contractor's interpretation of construction document set in reference to the scope of work in contract. Quality shop drawing details and documents/ all requirements of design parameters are used by Project Managers for material ordering, take-offs, fabrication, installation & erection. Offshore CAD outsourcing to India is one of the most popular management practices today. Though it is generally spurred by the cost reduction factor, this is just one of the reasons one shall consider for offshore outsourcing; other real/ major contribution is good value addition by way of much better productivity and improvement in quality. Shop drawings will include all necessary details, drawn in AutoCAD to describe Client’s interpretation of the CD set, for Architectural approval. The details will be generated from the Architectural Plans and Client’s directions as per check list to which System subscribes fully.
