In this course, students analyze multi-view drawings to determine construction type, locate benchmark and building elements, review codes and references, and perform calculations for construction planning. A closer look at specifications with the instructors helps students understand how they are formatted and used to clarify specific project design outcomes. Additionally, tips for troubleshooting installation, complying with codes, and managing project scope and quality of construction prepare students for jobsite leadership.
