AbstractThis set of sample architectural drawings done in metric format is another "metric aid" for the building industry. The drawings should be regarded only as a guide to the correct way of presenting metric dimensioning; they do not represent a model design nor do they indicate the requirements of building regulations. Guidelines for preparing building drawings using metric dimensions are provided that deal with scales, lettering and drafting practice. A bibliography of publications on metric conversion of the building industry is appended.
