Professional Practice

  • This course will provide you with the necessary SketchUp skills to create an accurate (technical) floor plan based on real life dimensions, including the construction of windows and doors, as per recognised technical drawing symbols.  You will learn how to create a floor plan accurately and efficiently, and in a professional manner, to support your design processes when considering layout and traffic flow.  This basic floor plan will be the foundation from which you will add further detail in course #3, where you will add a furniture layout and lighting plan.  Ultimately, this floor plan will be used to assist your design workflow and to facilitate discussion with clients when communicating design proposals.
