Why is structural drawing is mandatory for house construction?

Structural drawings are an essential part of the building design process and provide important information about the structural components of a building, such as foundations, columns, beams, walls, and roof systems.

Structural drawings are typically created by a structural engineer in coordination with the project Architect who is responsible for ensuring that the building is structurally sound and can withstand various loads, including dead loads (the weight of the building), live loads (the weight of people and objects in the building), and environmental loads (such as wind, rain, and earthquakes).

In addition to ensuring the safety and stability of the building, structural drawings also provide guidance for the construction process. They specify the type of materials to be used, the size and spacing of structural members, steel reinforcement, TMT rod thickness, size of beams, columns etc and its location of supports and connections.

Without structural drawings, it would be difficult to ensure that the building is constructed correctly and safely. Structural issues can result in costly repairs and even pose a risk to the occupants of the building. Therefore, it is essential to have structural drawings as part of the building design and construction process.
