Dimensioning Finish Plans

Generally, there is not a lot of dimensioning on the finish plan. As long as the plan is drawn to scale and the dimensions of the spaces and structure are indicated on the floor plan(s), the finishes can be estimated from these or other drawings. However, in some cases, dimensions are needed to describe limits of finishes or start and stop points occuring in areas that are not easily referenced in the plan view. Alignment and direction of patterns might need to be dimensioned directly on the plan, as illustrated in Figure 11-11. In these instances, references should be given that are easily obtainable in the field. Dimensions should be referenced from the face of a wall, column, or imaginary centerline of a room.

Checklist for Finish Plans

General

• Title the drawing, note Its scale, and Identify north (or reference direction).

• Title the accompanying finish schedule and key it to the plan.

• Place finish schedule on the same sheet as the finish plan (if possible) or on a sheet immediately preceding or following the plan.

• Clean up the plan (or in CAD, turn off superfluous information) so the walls, spaces, and key codes are clear, dark, and very legible.

• Number or name all applicable rooms/spaces where necessary.

Notations

• Cross-reference the plan (and schedule if applicable) to other drawings that might contain information critical to the finish plan.

• Note special features, clearances, alignments, and other important items.

• Cross-reference the finish plan and finish schedule, carefully checking for accuracy and completeness of information.

• Add notes on issues for the installer to be alert to when placing the finishes.

• Show or call out directions of linear patterns, such as strip wood flooring.

• If the designer is to approve a trial layout (such as floor or wall tile) in the field, add a note to this effect.

Dimensions

• Dimension clearances, alignments, and other controlling factors.

• Call out for the installer or contractor to verify existing dimensions of the space/structure with those shown on the finish, and verify these with the designer before installation.

FURNITURE INSTALLATION PLANS

The selection of furniture is an integral phase in the design of interior spaces, as it affects human functions and desires. Spaces can also be personalized by furniture, which reflects individual preferences, activities, and needs. This chapter will discuss furniture in both residential and commercial buildings. In commercial spaces, furniture generally reflects the concept, theme, or image an establishment wants to convey to the public or their clients. The selection of furniture in residential spaces often reflects the personal tastes and lifestyles of the individuals who occupy them.

Furniture is often included in what interior designers call the furniture, furnishings, and equipment (FF&E) package. (This terminology is found in many documents available through professional design societies, such as ASID, IIDA, and AIA.) Furniture provides for users' daily needs and completes the humanization of the environment. Furniture is often planned for early in an interior-design project. It may even be a design generator. For example, space can be organized around the placement of furniture to define traffic patterns or provide conversation areas.

Most interior projects involve the reuse of some existing furniture. Depending on the budget for the project and the condition of the existing furniture, such pieces might be reused in their original condition or refurbished for coordination with the designer's new concepts.

The design of interior environments with furniture often begins during the programming and space planning. These intial steps define the furniture needs in terms of type, size, and quantity. It then continues throughout the project, with the exact placement

and selection of individual characteristics often occurring after the initial programming and planning.

For specifying, ordering, and placing furniture, several steps are needed. The first step is to ascertain the client's activities in a space and what furniture is needed to perform these. During this phase, the furniture selection is often generic, which means the exact furniture pieces are not selected. For example, a conference table

might be specified as requiring seating for eight people. At this time, the designer might not even determine whether the table will be round, rectangular, or oval. However, this selection of form will occur soon, as it could have a major impact on the space planning by affecting clearances around the table for seating and circulation. The next step is the creation of a preliminary furniture plan to determine furniture number, groups, and orientation to support user activities, as illustrated in Figure 12-1. Next, a scaled furniture plan is drawn using the actual dimensions of the furniture pieces and an accompanying schedule is made. The next process is the creation of what is referred to as a job or control book or catalog, listing the specifications of each piece of furniture involved in the project. These are cross-referenced to the written specifications as to the standards to be met in the performance of the work, for the materials and the installation. The written specifications have the same contractual weight as the construction drawings and are part of the contract documents.

The exact placement of furniture is important in interior-design projects. In many projects, a separate drawing is created to show the final placement and orientation of the selected furniture. This is the furniture plan, or what is commonly called the furniture installation plan. It may include new, existing, and future pieces of furniture and related items. The selected pieces of furniture might be keyed directly to the plan view, as illustrated in Figure 12-2. However, most furniture plans in commercial projects include an accompanying key or schedule that is referenced to the plan view (Figure 12-3). Code numbers identify each piece of furniture. Information on pricing and ordering, as well as the final placement of the furniture, will generally be included in the job or control book.
