Advice on drawing standards
Drawing standard – floor plans
Floor plans show the layout of the building.
In most cases, two separate sets of floor plans will be required: ‘existing’ floor plans showing the building as it is now and ‘proposed’ floor plans showing how the building will look, after the works have been carried out.
Floor plans should:
- show a scale bar or a measured dimension
- be to a scale of 1:100 or 1:50
- be clearly annotated existing and proposed
- show all relevant floor levels of the building(s) being constructed, altered or extended, in relation to the remainder of the building
- clearly state the use of each room and include position of windows, doors, walls and partitions
- clearly label each floor
- clearly label the primary use of each room
- identify anything to be demolished
