Floor Plan Service | Project Summary 7

Drafting service businesses, such as mine, provide floor plan services. Doing so entails going to a building (or house) to measure its floor plans, followed by creating a CAD drawing that is based upon the measurements.

Such services could be needed by an architect, interior designer, homeowner, real estate agent or etc. Since, as I mentioned, I provide this service, today I’m going to review one of my past projects.

Project Background

I received a call from a property management company that needed two of their rental apartments measured the day of their call, and the drawing file emailed to them then next day. You ask, “Why the urgent rush?” Sorry, I have no idea!!??

Duty called, so the client and I agreed to a price, I hurried over to the apartments in the evening, and was done measuring them in a snap. The next day I emailed them the CAD file, along with the drawings in PDF format. Just like that the work was done!
