To read construction site plans, you will need to be familiar with the standard symbols and conventions used in the drawings. Start by studying the legend or key, which outlines the specific symbols used in the plans and explains their meanings. Pay close attention to the scale of the drawing, as it can vary depending on the size of the project.
To understand the various components depicted in the drawings, look for lines that are thicker or thinner than others, patterns in the lines, and text or labels next to the lines. With a basic understanding of the symbols, you should be able to interpret the plans and gain an understanding of how the project will be constructed.
