George Mason: Introduction to Reading Construction Drawings for the Real Estate Professional

Real estate professionals are routinely presented with complex issues and make decisions regarding the construction of buildings or the build out of tenant spaces, but often without the basic ability to read construction drawings.

You will learn basic familiarity in reading construction drawings, so you can gather important insights into the format and layout of the building and begin to learn the nuances of a project design. You will learn about the design process from concept drawings to construction documents; the uses of elevations, plans and cross sections; how to understand the organization and flow of drawings; how to read symbols, notes, abbreviations, tables and flowcharts on drawings; understand the legal obligations arising from construction drawings; and more.
