What type of work of a Electrical engineer on construction sites
Construction projects require working drawings and specifications created by an architect.
Electricians follow the drawings and specifications before conduits are installed, wires are pulled, or equipment is mounted.
Electrical drawings are customer requirements, and provide specific instruction. Although styles vary, standard symbols are used in the industry to represent types of material, raceways, conduits, equipment, and circuit connections. Therefore, it is the electrician’s job to interpret the drawings accurately.
Electrical drawings include the following plans and drawings:
1. A site plan indicating the location of the building on the property.
2. Floor plans showing the walls and partitions for each floor or level.
3. Elevations of all exterior faces of the building.
4. Several vertical cross sections to indicate clearly the various floor levels and details of the footings, foundations, wall floors, ceilings, and roof construction.
5. Large-scale detail drawings showing such construction details as may be required.
