Definition - What does Standard Drawings mean?
Standard drawings are predefined drawing templates that contain standard notes and details. They are used in the design of construction projects to save time and effort. Project design is an essential part of any trenchless construction operation.
Trenchlesspedia explains Standard Drawings
Repetitive work can lead to an unnecessary loss of time. In the trenchless construction industry, similar drawings are often needed for different projects. Rather than creating each drawing from scratch, it makes sense to use standard drawings that can be adapted to the particular requirements of each project.
Standard drawings are particularly useful in road and sewer construction. State and local governments use them to maintain uniformity and consistency in their construction projects. Ready-made drawings may be prepared for streets and gutters, manhole construction, or sanitary sewer connection. Trenchless operators regularly use these designs to complete their projects.
