Many projects will be constructed on sites with existing features or exterior or interior elements that are not envisaged to be part of the final design. These will need to be removed or demolished prior to grad-
ing for construction and are shown on a demolition plan. Figure 6.5 is an example of a demolition plan for interior elements of a house. It shows the elements to be demolished and to be retained. Trees and other items that are to remain should be noted in the keynotes. Dotted lines indicate items (walls, fixtures, etc.) to be removed to make the space ready for the new design. A keynote legend is usually included on a demolition drawing sheet, showing each number and corresponding note.
