Learn to Read Structural Drawings (RC Detailing)


What is this course is all about

Structural drawings are one of the most important documents needed in construction. The ability of the constructor/site engineer/project manager to understand the structural drawings increase the chance of success of the project. As a graduate seeking employment opportunities, interpreting structural drawings is an important skill to get better in.

This course offers a practical approach to reading structural drawings. We make use of a real-life project to explain the nitty-gritty of structural drawings.


We will show how to read all major structural drawings of elements such as slab, beam, column, staircase, foundation, retaining wall, and shear/lift wall.


The technique of creating a bar bending schedule is also explained in detail in this course. Detailed explanation on placing of reinforcements for each structural element as well as detailing of different types of staircases.
