Precast Drafting


SAW DRAFIX provides drafting services with a focus on the precast and cast stone industries. With competence and knowledge in all facets of precast drafting I am able to manage a vast array of projects ranging from simple office facilities to complex university buildings. A strong background and detail oriented work experience allows me to provide quality services to my clients. My precast shop drawings exhibit professional workmanship and a high-class presentation every time.


Shop Drawings

Shop drawings are typically required for pre-fabricated components and consist of plans, elevations, wall sections and connection details. These drawings accurately and properly communicate the design to those who manufacture and build it. Tailored drawings using your title block can be provided or the SAW DRAFIX title block will be used.


Embed Layouts

Embed layouts are necessary for all job site embedded plates and consist of plans at each level of the building requiring them. These layouts give the general contractor the information needed to precisely place each embed in the structure for connection purposes.


Shop Tickets

Every precast panel must have its own fully dimensioned shop ticket, with its own mark number and title block. All information needed to produce the panel is contained in the shop ticket, including as many views as considered necessary to fully illustrate and dimension the panel.


Bill of Materials

The bill of materials itemizes the hardware needed for complete assembly of precast/cast stone onto the structure. It consists of a loose hardware list and an embed list for cast-in and job site embeds. Hardware tickets are needed for embed plates and any other specialty plates with holes etc. This ensures proper production and supply of connection material.
