These are drawing(s) developed from dimensions acquired at the building or from occupant space. These drawings have limitations in that they are generated for dimensions of the buildings architectural elements (walls, windows, doors, stairs, bathrooms, etc.) that can be measure and do not account for the architectural elements that are hidden or not accessible. The drawing accuracy is also limited to the tolerances of the equipment used and the operator of the equipment. Laser technology it is now made possible to capture the as-built conditions with greater accuracy. These drawings are not architectural drawings and should not be confused with building calculations or measurement drawings. For the greatest accuracy, as-built drawings should be compared with and supplement with information found on the architectural drawings (drawings used to build the building or occupancy space).
