NOTICE
This standard was approved in accordance with SABS procedures on 27 February 1980. NOTE 1 In terms of the Standards Act, 1993 (Act 29 of 1993), no person shall claim or declare that he or any other person complied with an SABS standard unless

a) such claim or declaration is true and accurate in all material respects, and b) the identity of the person on whose authority such claim or declaration is made, is clear. NOTE 2 It is recommended that authorities who wish to incorporate any part of this standard into any legislation in the manner intended by section 31 of the Act consult the SABS regarding the implications.

This standard will be revised when necessary in order to keep abreast of progress. Comment will be welcome and will be considered when the standard is revised. PREFACE
This standard covers the production of building construction drawings in which information is communicated accurately and clearly, and with economy of means. For this purpose the selection of a co-ordinated drawing system rather than the continued use of traditional methods is most important. The standard is intended as a basis for the instruction of architectural, engineering, and building students, and it is suggested that educational and technical centres make extensive use of the standard.

To ensure correlation and co-ordination, all drawings relating to a building should be prepared in accordance with this standard. Drawings so prepared will include the work of the architectural, structural, electrical, and mechanical engineering professions and of the industries associated with building. The procedures should not, however, be considered mandatory, but more as a guide to normal practice.

Particular attention is drawn to the "Plan of Work" given in Appendix B. This is in the form of a flow diagram showing the recommended sequence of events in the design process and documentation for a building project.

Reprint incorporating Amendment No. 1: 28 March 1994

Attention is drawn to the applicable standards given
in appendix A of this standard. These references are
