This ebook is a selection of sketches appropriate to Year 1 study of Certificate, Diploma and BSc Degree courses.
This material would generally be dealt with at lectures and would (ideally) be sketched under direction at tutorials from blackboard/other work.
Each diagram has been devised, drafted and signed by the author, and is numbered for reference.

In your quest for knowledge in respect of the construction of buildings, be enquiring, be thorough, be critical, and always be prepared to discuss. Train yourself to sketch clearly, with notes/specification attached. Remember that neat, proportioned freehand drawing is the most immediate method of representing an idea or communicating a detail. From now on, and through your career, somebody may have to rely on the quality of your drafted or e-transmitted constructional details.
Do remember that this booklet does not represent a full course of study. It is but a selection of material abstracted from a larger syllabus body.

Year 1 students of Certificate, Diploma and BSc construction-related courses
Other Construction Graduates

A touchscreen device is most useful for the rapid enlarging of a detail, especially to read the smaller notes on my BB Pics.
