Overview: Blueprint and plans reading will enable you to read and interpret construction and environment plans and blueprints. Blueprints and plans are used in a variety of industries and on countless projects. The ability to read construction drawings is a primary function of the construction process for all parties. Architects use blueprints and written specifications to communicate necessary details with construction workers. Blueprints are 2-dimensional architectural design drawings that indicate the size of a planned building, the materials to be used in its construction, and the placement of its features.
