Design elements - Walls, shell and structure

The design elements library Walls, shell and structure contains 29 symbols of structural elements: walls, rooms, windows, doors, pillars.
Use the vector stencils library Walls, shell and structure to draw the floor plans and other architectural drawings, blueprints, home and building interior design, space layout plans, construction and house framing diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A wall is a horizontal structure, usually solid, that defines and sometimes protects an area. Most commonly, a wall delineates a building and supports its superstructure, separates space in buildings into sections, or protects or delineates a space in the open air. There are three principal types of structural walls: building walls, exterior boundary walls, and retaining walls.
Building walls have one main purpose: to support roofs and ceilings. Such walls most often have three or more separate components. In today's construction, a building wall will usually have the structural elements (such as 2×4 studs in a house wall), insulation, and finish elements or surface (such as drywall or panelling). In addition, the wall may house various types of electrical wiring or plumbing. Electrical outlets are usually mounted in walls.
Building walls frequently become works of art externally and internally, such as when featuring mosaic work or when murals are painted on them; or as design foci when they exhibit textures or painted finishes for effect.
In architecture and civil engineering, the term curtain wall refers to the facade of a building which is not load-bearing but functions as decoration, finish, front, face, or history preservation." [Wall. Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library Registers, drills and diffusers contains 47 symbols of rectangular, circular, linear and troffer air handling inlet/outlet components.
Use the design elements library Registers, drills and diffusers to draw reflected ceiling plans (RCP) and HVAC layout floor plans using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A ceiling is an overhead interior surface that covers the upper limit of a room. It is not generally considered a structural element, but a finished surface concealing the underside of the floor or roof structure above.
Ceilings are classified according to their appearance or construction. A cathedral ceiling is any tall ceiling area similar to those in a church. A dropped ceiling is one in which the finished surface is constructed anywhere from a few inches to several feet below the structure above it. This may be done for aesthetic purposes, such as achieving a desirable ceiling height; or practical purposes such as providing a space for HVAC or piping. An inverse of this would be a raised floor. A concave or barrel shaped ceiling is curved or rounded, usually for visual or acoustical value, while a coffered ceiling is divided into a grid of recessed square or octagonal panels, also called a "lacunar ceiling". A cove ceiling uses a curved plaster transition between wall and ceiling; it is named for cove molding, a molding with a concave curve." [Ceiling. Wikipedia]
"... reflected Ceiling Plans (RCP)s showing ceiling layouts appear after the floor plans." [Plan (drawing). Wikipedia]

The vector stencils library "Storage and distribution" contains 24 symbols of storage and distribution industrial equipment.
Use the design elements library "Storage and distribution" to draw industrial warehouse plans and storage and distribution equipment layouts using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A warehouse is a commercial building for storage of goods. Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, transport businesses, customs, etc. They are usually large plain buildings in industrial areas of cities and towns and villages. They usually have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks. Sometimes warehouses are designed for the loading and unloading of goods directly from railways, airports, or seaports. They often have cranes and forklifts for moving goods, which are usually placed on ISO standard pallets loaded into pallet racks.
Some of the most common warehouse storage systems are:
Pallet racking including selective, drive-in, drive-thru, double-deep, pushback, and gravity flow;
Mezzanine including structural, roll formed, racks;
Vertical Lift Modules;
Horizontal Carousels;
Vertical Carousels." [Warehouse. Wikipedia]

Use the shapes library Building core to draw the structural diagrams, bathroom layouts, building automation, architectural drawings, and riser diagrams, as well as space plans, store and shopping mall plans, and facility planning, plant layouts using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"In architecture and building engineering, a floor plan otherwise known as a Scottish plan is a drawing to scale, showing a view from above, of the relationships between rooms, spaces and other physical features at one level of a structure.
The term may be used in general to describe any drawing showing the physical layout of objects.
A floor plan could show:
Interior walls and hallways;
Restrooms;
Windows and doors;
Appliances such as stoves, refrigerators, water heater etc.;
Interior features such as fireplaces, saunas and whirlpools;
The use of all rooms shall be indicated." [Floor plan. Wikipedia]
