1/2” = 1’36” x 24”

ScaleSheet Size
6” = 1’17” x 11”
9" = 1'24" x 18"

Shop drawings are to be delivered in 17” x 11”, 24” x 18”, or 36” x 24” sizes in PDF format (CAD files may be sent also upon request). Please note that you may request a different paper size, but for all non-standard paper sizes, $95 will be added to your final invoice.

Economy Shop Drawings have generic detail pages. No fasteners or screws are shown at perimeter details. Standard Shop Drawings are the same as Economy, but with "surrounding conditions" fully detailed at perimeter conditions including demonstration of how the fasteners/screws secure systems to the substrate(s). Please see the photo below for example.

A "Full Section" is an entire wall section showing your scope of work, to be included in the detail sheets of your shop drawing package. Please see a sample of our "Full Sections" add-on below.
