Introduction

1.1

Purpose

The purpose of this document is to set out the layering convention to be used when adding
layers/levels to drawings. It also contains the lists of discipline, status, element, sub-element and
lineweight codes for the layering convention.

1.2

Scope

This document has been setup to list commonly used codes and the service based discipline codes.
The service based discipline codes are included here to make it easier and quicker for an end user to
locate any codes outside of their service.

Aurecon Drawing Guide Supplement - Layering

Layering convention

To enable consistency and ease of use between drafters, offices, disciplines, units and services, a
layering convention has been produced for use on all projects where the client has not stipulated
otherwise. The convention is loosely based on the AIA/NCS CAD Layer Guidelines.
A-B-CCCC-DDDD-EEE-FFF, where:
A

= 1 character Discipline code. Discipline codes are used to designate the type of element
drawn not the discipline creating the layer.

= Optional 1 character Status code. This component is used to denote the type of work
contained on the layer.

CCCC

= 4 character element. This component is used primarily for the type of element being drawn
such as abutments (ABUT), ducts (DUCT), footings (FOOT), kerbs (KERB), lights (LITE),
piles (PILE) or slabs (SLAB).

DDDD

= 4 character sub-element. This component is used to separate/breakdown the major


element into specific types or parts such as ABUT-CONC, DUCT-ELEC, FOOT-OTLN,
KERB-INVT, LITE-SWCH, PILE-HIDD or SLAB-STEP.

EEE

= Optional 3 character lineweight code. This component is used for separating/breaking


down the element+sub-element items. If two or more lineweights are required to represent
the same element+sub-element item then this field takes care of that.

FFF

= Optional 3 character linetype code. This component is also used for separating/breaking
down the element+sub-element items. If two or more linetypes are required to represent the
same element+sub-element item then this field takes care of that. Refer to the appropriate
software specific supplement for the available codes.

Rules:
a) The discipline code shall always be included.
b) The status code is optional.
c) The element and sub-element codes shall always be included and each shall be 4 characters long.
d) Element codes can be used as sub-element codes when necessary but not vice versa.
It is recommended that when working in plan type external references that the optional lineweight and
linetype components not be used as most often is the case, the lineweight and linetype will change
based on the type of drawing it is attached to and the scale used.
The layering convention applies to those CADD software programs that use layers or similar.

2.1

General layer names

General layers are those layers that are not discipline specific but rather would be included in a file
whichever discipline was working on the file. For instance all drawings require a drawing title block and
as such to be consistent with other drawings, the layer G-ANNO-TTLB should be used rather than CANNO-TTLB or E-ANNO-TTLB or M-ANNO-TTLB or S-ANNO-TTLB for example.
The following layer names are primarily for use within the production drawings or sketches as opposed
to the discipline specific external reference files.

Aurecon Drawing Guide Supplement - Layering

Element codes

The Element component of the layering convention is used to label the primary component being
documented whereas the Sub-element component is used to describe the different facets of the
primary component.
For example the Element component can be items such as abutments (ABUT), ducts (DUCT), footings
(FOOT), kerbs (KERB), lights (LITE), piles (PILE) or slabs (SLAB) and to breakdown the components
that make up the element LITE, sub-elements such as conduits (LITE-COND), switches (LITESWCH), text (LITE-TEXT) and/or down lights (LITE-DOWN) can be used.
In the following tables you will find the codes and their descriptions sorted by the service most
commonly using the element. Before creating a new element code for your service, ensure to check
the other services first.
If you are having trouble determining a new code there is a mnemonic generator (abbreviation
generator) located on this website: http://spot.colorado.edu/~sonderga/mnemonic.html. Something to
note is it usually only abbreviates one word when inputting 2 or more words, it is suggested you
remove the spaces to have the abbreviation created for the 2 or more words. For example: post
tensioning results in TNSG whereas posttensioning comes back as PSSG. Once you have
completed this, compare the new code to the ones listed here and if it doesnt clash forward it on.
These lists are by no means the full and fixed lists but rather they are starting points and can be added
to by submitting extra codes and descriptions to the CADD Service Group forum or by emailing the
CADD SG team. The codes contained here come largely from the AIA CAD Layer Guidelines.
Note:

When determining the appropriate element code to use take into consideration the name of
the external reference file as it usually has already decided the type of information that will be
included in the file. For example an external reference file may be named 12345-XR-C-Bridge
and therefore the element code BRDG is not required but rather the components of the bridge
can be used to better describe the layers required.
