Draughtsperson, draughting technician; Construction design draughtsperson


The carrying out of any construction project, whether it is building or civil engineering works, requires the previous design of a plan that serves to determine its characteristics and construction criteria. Thus, the drawings, blueprints, sketches, construction details and figures that comprise its graphic documentation are a fundamental part of any plan. Within this context, the construction draughtsman is a technician specialised in the drawing up of the graphic documentation of construction projects, through the preparation of different representations in two and three dimensions, in a way that is easy to understand and interpret on site for its correct execution.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is currently being deployed as a collaborative work system for the creation and management of a construction project. Its objective is to centralize the information of the project in a digital information model created by all the agents involved in its creation. BIM represents the evolution of traditional plan-based design systems, since it incorporates geometrical (3D), time (4D), cost (5D), sustainability (6D) and maintenance (7D) information. The use of BIM goes beyond the design phases since it includes the execution of the project and extends the life cycle of the building which allows its management and reduces operating costs.
