Shop drawings are the manufacturer’s or contractor’s drawn version of the information shown in the construction documents.
They are drawn to provide the fabricator with a clear, fully detailed understanding of the requirements of the project.
They provide the fabricator with an opportunity to specify in detail any preferences they have in terms of achieving the required design.
Shop drawings must be reviewed and approved by the contractor and/or architect prior to fabrication to assure the shop drawing meets with the architect’s design intent.
