Electrical drawings are included to detail the electrical wiring and outlets in a building. Jim explains that electrical drawings may be drawn by an electrical engineer or a mechanical engineer, and can often include details for communications and data wiring. Jim shows examples of schematic views.
- [Instructor] In the last video,…I introduced to you to the M-Sheets…that represented the Mechanical drawings on this project.…And I told you that we sometimes…also refer to the mechanical drawings…as the HVAC drawings.…Now, we also sometimes refer to them…as being part of the MEP drawings.…And the reason we refer to them as MEP…is we're talking about Mechanical, Electrical,…and Plumbing drawings.…The reason that we sometimes group these together like that…is that most often they're all designed and drawn by…a single MEP consultant.…
What I want to take a look at now in this video…is the E sheets in our group of MEP drawings.…And again, we see that list here,…and I'm going to use our hyperlinked index sheet…and jump straight to the first one, Sheet E-001.…So first, notice again that our consultant,…up here in the title block,…is the same as it was on our mechanical drawings,…and that's going to be the same on our plumbing drawings, too.…We have a single MEP consultant on this project.…Next, notice that also similar to the mechanical drawings…
In this course, learn how to read construction drawings. Jim Rogers helps you acquire this important skillset by taking you through the different components that make up construction plans, and helping you understand the language of construction drawings. He covers types of views, highlights different kinds of construction drawings—including architectural drawings, electrical drawings, and plumbing drawings—explains how to read general notes, and more.
