In this program you will learn the process of reading and understanding residential construction blueprints for construction .

Construction blueprints are the drawings that contain all the details for the project at hand. These blueprints are needed to obtain permits, schedule construction and for budgeting. Blueprints provide the vital information required by all the parties involved in the building process. It all starts with flipping and reading the pages of the blueprint, from visualizing the project on paper to building a real world structure. Knowing how to read the blueprint gives the construction professional a sense of complete understanding of expectations when it comes to design and materials. Depending on the scope of your work, the construction professional must know how to read their part of the blueprints to bid on and build the project. And if you are the construction project manager, construction site supervisor, builder, or developer, then you might have to learn to read the entire blueprint. Not knowing how to read the blueprint may lead to incorrect bidding and design disasters.
