Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Project by Travel Man # 4 - Drafting a School Site Plan

Updated on September 24, 2011

School period in the Philippines is a busy year for teachers, especially if you're the principal or head teacher. You have to check lesson plans of your teachers, attend meetings for your cluster at the division office, attend national convention, special upgradings for your rank aside from the chores you have to do in school and home, too. You don't have to prim up yourself, although you still have plans to follow and the insertion of sudden projects that may come your school.

This hubber was visited last week of June to do special chores for my cousin, who happens to be the principal of the elementary school in the adjacent village (barrio ) of his place. That is, to make an enlarge projection of the school site development plan.

Well, aside from recording every work that this hubber do that he encounter each day, it's also an opportunity to go back to his college expertise (don't oppose me please). That is, drawing and its related field (painting, sketching portraits) is his primary pastime during his school days.

The principal oriented him on how do the plan, just estimating the ratio but also indicating the exact perimeter of the school area. She and this hubber went to the school to photograph the edifices or buildings and other things that must be included on the drawing, like the gardens, the plants, walls, etc.

Travel Man made the miniature plan on a clean sheet of coupon bond with just a blue-point pen. He then colored it to distinguish the different school buildings present at the school site and the proposed school buildings, as well. Public school buildings in the country are often sponsored by legislators assigned in the area.

The school site's land title is still on the process of titling amid the persistence of the heirs of the original landowners to claim it again. This is the problem of many schools in the country. If the heirs continue to pay for its land taxes, they will pursue to get it back, unless the local land assessor and bureau of land already issued its title certificate.

Technical Drafting and this hubber

Technical Drafting was the course that this hubber studied during his two-year-stint in the vocational school he attended before pursuing another career on the radio and seafaring, as well.

Attending the subject requires you to buy your own technical pens, ink and other technical gadgets (like T-square, triangles -right and isosceles, etc.), drawing cartolina and papers, tracing papers.

The tuition fee is low but the daily requirements for drawing house plans, doing simple geodetic surveys in school or special areas and even early commission drawing for local buildings will keep you busy.

You'll be the right hand of the architect you want to work with. You'll do all the dirty works and your chosen architect will just sign his signature.

This is a preparatory course if you want to pursue a diploma course on architecture. You'll spend 5 years in school before hurdling the board exam that you must pass before being thrown into the realities of this field.
Designing buildings, innovations and formulating building construction strategies are awesome opportunities to venture in this career.

It's not only your bread-and-butter but you must work for it with all your heart in order to succeed.
