Client’s Challenges Before BOP’s Facade Design Assistance
As a big engineering firm, they had requirements of facade drawing for a new terminal in the Los Angeles airport and commercial buildings in the US. They were looking for an outsourcing partner who could help them with shop drawings and a cutting list, including the dimensions and measurements of the elements. Coming across BOP, they were convinced with the experience and the expertise and ended up in hiring us for their project.
BOP’s Custom Solution for the Facade Design Requirements
On receiving the architect’s drawing and the take-offs form the client, BOP’s team reviewed the requirements carefully and devised a custom process. The entire project was divided into five projects, and three engineers, including three drafters and one quality controller, were assigned per project.
The team converted the drawings and plans to CAD using AutoCAD and sent it to the client for a review. Once they approved, we started with the drafting based on their strict SOP and shared for another round of review. The next step was to create the shop drawing, detailing, and panel drafting following the SOP. We had to name every sheet according to the format, font, writing process with high-level detailing, which was challenging. Lastly, we started with the cutting list for the accurate measurements of the elements in Bluebeam software and shared the design for one project with the client within 20 days.
