Meeting the Expectations of All State Plan Reviewers

Long gone are the days of hand drawn sketches or verbal understandings. An engineering design completed using a CAD, or Computer-Aided Design, software allows for universal understanding of our main goal – which is to create a structure that meets all demands in a cost-effective manner. The sky’s the limit, and it’s our mission to bring your ideas to life through code drawings.

What is Computer-Aided Drafting and Design?

Computer-Aided Drafting (CAD) is the process of creating code drawings or models that define a products’ look and function before it is ready to be manufactured. This is a great benefit to engineers and architects and a leap over traditional blueprints. You are able to reap the benefits of having your plan get a new look while ensuring your design can stand up to the years.

Computer-aided drawings bridge the communication between designers, those who come up with the ideas, and those who put the ideas into practice. They serve as trouble-shooting tools and as technical manuals for identifying the weak spots in a mechanical design. Code drawings are designed as a universal language, so they can be understood by engineers, architects, and contractors alike.

Regulatory Approvals

More About T.R. Arnolds’ Code Drawings

T.R. Arnold’s specialty is code drawings depicting the aspects of your various models which must be documented for regulatory approvals. These drawings can be prepared from information which you provide or from the actual units in production.
As specialists in this field, a code drawing can be prepared more quickly and economically than most in-house drafting departments. The code drawing format used by TRA was developed using the experience and knowledge obtained through the many years of working with plan reviewers at multiple regulatory agencies. Therefore, TRA’s drawings have the substantial benefit of being in a consistent format with which regulatory level plan reviewers are familiar, which can offer quick efficient processing once submitted.

T.R. Arnold & Associates is the third-party drafting and code drawing agency to rely on to take your services to the next level. Reach out to us today to learn more.
