Plot Plans
The plot plan shows the survey marks with the elevations and the grading requirements. The plot plan is used by the Engineering Aids to set up the corners and perimeter of the building using batter boards and line stakes, as shown here (Example) . Thus, the plot plan furnishes the essential data for laying out the building.

  1. Assignment – Chapter 15 Plot Plan Review Questions
  2. Plot Plan / Site Plan Layout
    Assignment – On 1 acre layout the floor plan you designed in the previous activity. Include ALL appropriate details outlined for plot plans in our textbook. The example link above for a typical residential plot plan. Include trees (landscaping)and elevation information as well. Scale: 1/4″ – 20′

Site Plan (No Assignment)
A site plan (Example) shows the contours, boundaries, roads, utilities, trees, structures, and any other significant physical features on or near the construction site. The locations of proposed structures are shown in outline. This plan shows comer locations with reference to reference lines shown on the plot that can be located at the site. By showing both existing and finished contours, the site plan furnishes essential data for the graders.
