Print Reading for Commercial Construction

Since construction drawings represent such a large portion of the construction documents necessary to build any structure, it is essential that all people involved in the building process- including office/field personnel, planners, suppliers, etc.- know how to interpret them. The ability to visualize the end product comes from the ability to comprehend the designer’s language. This is accomplished through the memorization of the technical vocabulary including common lines and symbols. Once a student is familiar with the designer’s goals and language, he/she will be able to increase their ability to visualize the end product through practice. This class emphasizes the development of print reading skills in order to understand common and new construction techniques in building commercial projects.

Cost: $200 members and $350 non members (that does not include the required book)

The class will meet four times in October from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

Participants will need to purchase the text book and bring it with them to the first class on October 5.
