Different sub-foundation and foundation systems will be reviewed. Basic symbol identification will be reviewed. Class will include reading the different schedules (Beam Schedules, Column Schedules, etc) and how to relate them to the drawings. Class will take a detailed look at foundation plans, framing plans, floor plans, etc. and how to compare to other disciplines to coordinate and identify conflicts.
