SKETCH PLANS / DESIGN DRAWINGS
These terms are used for the drawing used by an architect to design your building, putting ideas to paper from quick free hand sketches to fully photo rendered 3D presentations. These plans are used for the clients to be able to see what can be expected of the new building.
BUILDING PLANS / WORKING DRAWINGS
Building plans / working drawings are used in the building environment to construct the building, and approving these plans is one of the most important steps towards building your new home or buying / selling a home. Without municipal approved plans a building cannot be built or sold and if you do not know of this pitfall you could easily buy an unapproved building and get stuck with the legal implications of having to provide plans as owner of a house. Always make sure before building or buying a home there are approved plans from your local Municipality.
