3.0 Filenames and numbering
Please use the assigned project numbers as a prefix for all CAD drawings All CAD drawing files in the
“Cad” folder should be an A plus the 5 digits prefix plus the naming convention as indicated below.
Under the “CAD” folder, the filename suffix is somewhat more flexible but the following guidelines should
be followed to achieve a level of consistency in the office.
See below for examples of how to name your drawing files.
3.3 Drawing Series

3.4 Drawing numbering
For various project phases, a prefix may be used as indicated below:
Site planning (SP, SP01)
Preliminary Development Permit
Suffix small set simple sheet numbering in a series: 01-01 etc.
Suffix large set numbering following drawing series: 101,102,103,104 etc.
For all complex/large series drawing sets, all drawing numbers should be as per the Revit/Cad production Standards series numbering system. Numbering system may only be altered for Developer specific standards, otherwise use the default Kennedy numbering system.
Cover sheet, General Notes, Construction Assemblies, Fire Drawings
Sections – building and wall
Vertical Circulation – Elevators and Stairs
Schedules, Door, Window, Finish and Material, Drawing Specifications
For numbering area overlay sheets, or tiled enlarged sheets, a lower case ”a” can be added to the matching floor plan drawing number. For example, the drawing number for an area overlay/or tiled floor plan of sheet A2.5 can be A2.5a
For Interior design only packages the same drawing numbering system can be used prefixed with ID.
3.5 Title Sheets
Paperspace layout Names (Multiple Layouts with one Title Sheet each)
Title sheets should be inserted into paperspace at 1:1. Each title sheet should be saved as a layout tab with the corresponding title drawing number.
By placing each title sheet in the same location in every layout, a single paper-space view can be saved(opposite corners of the title sheet) that can be used for the plotting of all Layouts.
Title block can be found in the following location.
Short Term Archiving
The archiving of project files in Cad and pdf form should take place at all important phases or milestones. This includes significant milestones during design development, D.P. B.P., Tender, Construction, Asbuilts, etc. These phases can be archived into separate sub-folders within the “CAD” folder in the project
