The ability to read blueprints is a foundational skill in the construction industry. Whether working in the field performing inspections and completing work, or whether working in the office performing plan reviews, the need to know how to accurately read blueprints is essential!
Blue prints are the main communication tool between the architect, the customer, and the contractor. At the field level, having print reading skills can result in increased productivity. A better understanding of blueprints will make an employee a valuable asset to their company, prepare them to advance, and open up new opportunities.
