What is a Blueprint?
A blueprint is a reproduction of a technical drawing using a contact print process on light-sensitive sheets. Introduced by Sir John Herschel in 1842, the process allowed rapid and accurate production of an unlimited number of copies.
Nowadays, blueprints are also called floor plans. These have a 2D model of the space the designer is going to work on for the designated project. Depending on the project these plans feature elevations, space planning, location of appliances, lighting, demolition, plumbing, cabinets position, etc…
The contractor follows these plans in order to get his side of the project done correctly, so that is why it is important to have these plans up to-date and in accordance with the clients’ needs.
