1.  Turn in ONE single PDF file for your own part of the team project.
(consolidate all of your sheets into ONE pdf).

2.  Deposit your PDF files …….. HERE.

3.  From each team, I am expecting the following 4 (four) PDF files:
– Cover/Index/Architectural set.
– Structural set.
– Mechanical set.
– Appendix.

After reviewing about 24 status sets, here are some general comments.
A.  Colors:
The original set of colors are bright (yeesh) when viewed large.  I strongly suggest using the Alternate set of colors.

B.  North arrows:
Please use north arrows on all plans!   They would also be very helpful on all Views A, B (rotated properly).

C.  Annotations:
Remember that the Views A, B are the place to describe general design features.
Architecture View A,B:  describe your main design features that make the building unique.
Structural View A,B:  describe your structural system in general.  Type of system + unique conditions.
Mechanical set:
Solar sheets need to describe Energy Savings ideas, including Architectural envelope ideas.
Mechanical Strategy Sheet (with equipment) should describe equipment choices, locations.
