Add Drawings

SiteSupervisor creates a familiar digital drawing register format making storage, approval, management, and distribution of drawings across the Site Team more controlled and seamless than ever before.  

Project Drawings for the purpose of planning, building, tender, construction and other uses can be stored in SitePlans, and can be referenced throughout all of SiteSupervisor.

To begin, go to the drawing register for the relevant Discipline, or if the Discipline does not yet exist then create the Discipline.  Within the drawing register, select the “Add drawings button” in the right sidebar.

Tip: Only users with access to that discipline will be able to view, add revisions and/or markup drawings.

Tip: Uploading a new drawing adds a row to the drawing register.  

You will be guided through a four-step process to Add a Drawing:

Step 1:

In the “Add drawings” popup, files can be added either via dragging and dropping the file, or by selecting the upload button.

Tip: The recommended file format for uploading drawings is single-page CAD export, in .pdf format. 

Tip: For ease of reference, include your drawing number in the file name.

Step 2:

If there are no issues in the upload process, you will be asked to select the “Next” button to proceed.

Step 3:

Fill out the Details for the drawing. Note that fields with an asterisk (*) next to them are required. If the image is not correctly oriented, it can be rotated here using rotate button provided.  

Tip: To make drawings easy to manage and find, it’s recommended that you adopt a standard set of conventions for the names and numbering. That way you and other users with access to the discipline can easily find drawings as the drawing register builds out.

  • Drawing name*  eg Floor Plan – Restaurant
  • Drawing number* eg PD106
  • Drawing level name*eg Ground  
  • Drawing level number* eg 00, or "G"
  • Revision status* eg For Construction
  • Revision number*  (default is 0)

Tip: only set if this drawing is the initial revision.  SiteSupervisor will automatically set this for following revisions.

  • Revision issue date* 08 Aug 2018
  • Comment

Any additional documentation files, such as CAD or BIM files, can also be attached with the drawing for future reference. Once the necessary details have been completed, select the “Next” button.

Step 4:

You will be brought to the Processing drawing page. The drawing has been created at this point. While the drawing is being processed you can leave this page and return to it without losing anything.

Once the drawing has completed processing, it can be submitted for approval by the drawing approver, which is a key role set-up in Project Overview. Markups, revisions and any other changes that need to be made to the drawing can be done from this page.
