Plant Layout Plans

A floor plan is a drawing that can be created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM in order to show a view from above as well as of the relationships between spaces, rooms and other physical features at one level of a structure. The dimensions can be usually drawn between the walls for specifying the room sizes, as well as the wall lengths. Floor plans can include details of fixtures like sinks, furnaces, water heaters and other necessary features, as well as the notes for construction to specify construction methods, finishes, or symbols for electrical items.

A floor plan should be created taking into consideration that it is not a birds’ eye view or top view. It is a measured drawing used for scaling of the layout of a floor in a building. A floor plan should be made for showing the interior walls and hallways, restrooms, windows and doors, appliances (e.g., stoves, water heater, refrigerators, etc.), interior features and other.

Making a building plan such as a plant layout one it is important to remember that a plan view should eventually look like an orthographic projection of a three-dimensional object from the position of a horizontal plane through the object. Thus, a plan can be called as a section that can be viewed from the top. As a result, the portion of the object above the plane (section) is known to be omitted in order to reveal what is beyond it. Also, while creating a floor plan, the roof, as well as the upper portion of the walls, may be omitted too.

Roof plans can be also known simply as the orthographic projections, but they are not sections as their viewing plane is usually outside of the object.

Being a common method of depicting the internal arrangement of a three-dimensional object in two dimensions, a plan can be the one of a plant where all the equipment and rooms are drawn in details. Any technical building plan can be often used in technical drawing, being traditionally crosshatched. The style of crosshatching may indicate the particular type of material that the sections pass through.

Plant Layout Plans solution can be used for making the needed building plans, such as the plant ones making the plant layout looking professionally good. Having both the pre-made templates and examples of the plant layout plans, as well as the stencil libraries with the design elements, that can be also used for adding them to the plan, you can create the professionally looking drawing within only a few minutes.

Being useful for architects, the Plant Layout Plans solution may be also useful for electricians, interior designers, builders, telecommunications managers and other technicians.
