Benefits of 2D CAD include:
Accuracy. As-built drawings will help you find any discrepancies between construction documents and actual construction. You will receive a snapshot of the building's current conditions and design.
Efficiency and collaboration. Having accurate documentation of any architectural, structural, and MEP elements will serve as a resource for project stakeholders for clash detection in future site maintenance and renovations.
Safety. Having knowledge on building exit and shut-off valve locations is crucial in ensuring that you have identified any safety hazards and have the appropriate safety measures and evacuations plans in place.
Flexibility and time savings. Creating and making adjustments to 2D CAD drawings is often created quicker than a 3D BIM.
ARC is an extension of your office providing high quality CAD drafting services for the creation of design and construction documents. We can provide simple red-line drafting, or if you don’t have time to provide us with detailed markups, just convey your intent to one of our licensed architects and we’ll take it from there. We can also provide training, raster to vector conversions, space plans/test fits, BOMA calculations and space accounting.
ARC has specialized in providing high quality building documentation services since 1997. We believe that owners, designers and contractors do not need to be subjected to unforeseen existing conditions or the associated costs and time delays that often accompany them. During this time, ARC has focused on perfecting the means, methods and best practices to provide extremely accurate as-built documentation using the latest in technologies such as HDS (High Definition Survey) 3D Laser Scanning and advanced photo imagery.
