On-Site Field Measurement and CAD Drawing

August 27, 2012 at 6:08 pm Leave a comment

MBA recently completed measurement and as-built CAD drawings for 22 hearing clinics in Arizona and Southern California.  This was our first exercise in field measurement AND creating the CAD drawings (floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, and telephone/electrical/data plans) on-site with a laptop computer.  Previously, we documented our information on hard-copy floor plans and field notes, and prepared the drawings when we returned to our desktops at the office.  Having worked both ways, Steve certainly prefers having the laptop in the field.  Very nice to be able to go and check something immediately if it doesn’t seem to work out in the drawing.  These were small sites, 500 – 4,000 SF each, and a good project to implement this change in procedure.
