MS International, Premium Natural Stones - Granite, Marble, Travertine

Shop drawings are a great communication tool that can clarify details of a project to clients, production employees, and installation crews. During this session, we will discuss key components of shop drawings, how to create them, and how to fabricate stone to meet specifications. Come away with a better knowledge of these documents and a plan for how to use them to create a successful installation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Communication with Clients: Material selections and design details (seams, edges, finishes, and accessories) can all be visually communicated to ensure that expectations are understood by all parties.
  • Communication with Production: Review which information is most helpful in communicating with shop/production employees to ensure error-free fabrication.
  • Communication with Installers: Review which information is most helpful to installation crews to ensure that all site details are met.
  • Create a plan to utilize shop drawings in an effective manner to ensure success.
