Typically, my job is to help architects with all graphic documents they need during the different phases of their projects. It can be surveying an existing building prior to renovation or extension works, drawing plans and elevations for a construction permit, establishing bidding documents to get quotations from contractors, drawing construction plans and details that will be used on site, or drawing as-built plans after the completion of the works.
I’m using Autocad (LT 2013) for all 2D documents and Sketchup (Pro 8) for 3D views and rendered elevations and sections. I also possess a functional knowledge of Photoshop.
For all surveying works on existing structures, I use laser tools to allow for very precise mesurements and I produce all graphic documents (plans, facades, sections) in Autocad format using a strictly organised file.
