Correct term/title for "floor drill hole lay-out" (holes through floor for piping)

Yet another Dutch to English translation request :)

How would you name a layout drawing on which you dimension all holes that are to be drilled through a floor (piping related). In Dutch we use the term: "gatenplan", directly translated that would make: "hole-layout"

I've seen titles like "floor opening lay-out", "floor penetration plan", "drill hole lay-out", "drill hole plan"... Just doesn't sound right to me, but I don't know what would be better.

How would you (native English speakers) title such a drawing?

RE: Correct term/title for "floor drill hole lay-out" (holes through floor for piping)

If it's a real size plan (1:1 scale) then you could call it a drilling template, but otherwise

"Floor penetration plan" or lay-out describes it the best as far as I can see.

Why not post an example of what you mean.

But you might suffer from the flexibility of English again...

Being curious why are you drilling individual holes through a floor? Usually goes into ducting or transits between floors.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

Hi LittleInch,

Unfortunately I'm restricted to NDA's, but here's the general idea (with the cyan coloured circles being the holes):

Definately not 1:1 scale, more like 1:50

As for your question about the individual holes; I agree with you, that would be more efficient and look better, but due to process limitations we often don't have the luxury of routing our pipes through the floor as bundles. Often (especially in the paper business) pipes need to be as short as possible.

RE: Correct term/title for "floor drill hole lay-out" (holes through floor for piping)

It looks the drawing has other civil construction details in addition to holes. IMO, the drawing may be called as the "floor plan", and the hole penetration can be one of the work details.

RE: Correct term/title for "floor drill hole lay-out" (holes through floor for piping)

Hmmm,

"Floor penetration plan" still looks pretty good.

If I was looking through a list of drawings trying to see where to locate a set of holes in a floor that description would do it for me.

Or you could add ~"setting out plan" to the end to make it even more specific.

Why only dimensions in one axis? (X axis) for a lot of those penetrations?

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

Ok, thanks guys. I think I'll stick to "Floor penetration plan"

Only because the image I posted was a quick screenshot and still very much work in progress wink
