As-Built drawings, also known as As-Constructed drawings or As-Installed drawings, capture the ‘actual’ build details as completed by various trades on a construction project.

The requirement of projects throughout the building phase for each trade and in most case the client requires these variations to be document. Many modifications are carried out onsite but trades need to formalise the changes, the Construction Drawings document the work to be completed however As Built drawings document the changes throughout the construction process.
The Drawable are able to create As Built Drawings for Electrical and Data, Hydraulic and Mechanical, Security and CCTV, Plumbing, pretty much any trade projects. We work on commercial and residential buildings, retail and shopping centres, defence and government, education and many other types of jobs.

Whether you need modifications to your As Built electrical drawings or hundreds of data points, DB and CB numbers added, wiring schematics updated we can assist. Simply send us the CAD files along with your electrical mark ups and we’ll usually supplies quotes on the same day.

Plumbing contracts will require the submission of as built drawing for both hydraulic and civil services. We update the CAD for all your sewer, water, gas, tanks, DP’s, pits, pumps, sinks, troughs and more. Simply send us the CAD files (we’ll have a look and make sure we can work with them) along with your mark-ups and we update the CAD files and send them back as PDF’s for checking.

Penetration drawings (sometime referred to as peno drawings) save time, money and prevent costly onsite mistakes. All vertical penetration points are specified in a CAD drawing and in turn used by the surveyor to plot out the data onsite. To provide you with a penetration drawing, specify the point for all your basins, toilets, baths, troughs, washing machines, kitchen sinks, down pipes, floor wastes, planter boxes etc., along with the hydraulic drawings and we’ll simply locate your points in CAD and provide an easy checking drawing.

if it’s moving condenser units, updating numbering and system identifications, shifting tundish locations or revising duct work just mark it up and we’ll implement the changes in CAD to reflect a true as constructed drawing.

We are able to strip out electrical drawings and modify them to be purely security drawings. We logically locate all your door, camera and intercom components plus specific features such as push button, card reader, electric strike, magnetic strike etc. Most clients have their own preferred legend or we will happily develop one for you as standard.


As Constructed Drawings

We update your marked up contractor drawings to ‘As-Constructed’ conditions, up issue revision numbers and history tables. Outputs include PDF & DWG files, plots and CD copies.


We customise the As Constructed drawing title block to incorporate your company logo and contact details. From now on every drawing you submit will not just be meeting a job requirement, but a marketing tool which may see you contacted for future works.

Long Term Benefits

As Built drawings saves everyone money it’s that simple.

Being able to show tradespeople the exact location of where work is to be completed or where the faulty component is, or the data outlet that needs to be patched in, the plantroom that requires servicing etc.  Since As-Built drawings define the location of hidden services such as wiring, ducts and plumbing, future remodelling, repairs and maintenance can all be carried out with greater ease.

Similarly, building permits and dispensation applications to council require as-built drawings. Supplying current hard and soft copies of these reduces the time and associated cost for the applicant.
