Document Reading Course - Fall

The fall session of our Documents Reading Class has been cancelled.

We will be offering this course again in the spring (March 2023). If you'd like to be alerted when registration opens or have questions about the course, please email Ashlee at ah@mbex.org.

Dates: September 19 - October 11, 2022
Time: Mondays & Tuesdays

Introduction to Understanding and Using Construction Documents is designed to provide students with the foundational knowledge of reading blueprints as well as ample practice at recognizing architectural symbols.

Students will review a set of construction documents (drawings and specifications) that will enhance their understanding of building construction. Since most students in attendance represent specialty building contractors, the specfications, reading of bid requirements, and general conditions will assist the student to define a scope of work for their area of interest. The drawings will be studied to better understand graphic representation of building systems. Worksheets will be completed to indicate comprehension of construction documents throughout the course.

Session 1: September 19 - Bid Documents (Drawings and Specifications)
Session 2: September 20 - Construction Documents and Scopes of Work
Session 3: September 26 - Site Work, Concrete/Masonry and Foundations
Session 4: September 27 - Exterior Finishes and Systems
Session 5: October 3 - Roof Systems
Session 6: October 4 - Doors, Windows, Hardware and Specialties
Session 7: October 10 - Interior Finishes (Cabinetry and Painting)
Session 8: October 11 - Plumbing, Mechanical and Electrical Systems
