Question:

Difference between floor plan and reflected ceiling plan?

For one of my classes I have to do a floor plan with furnishings and electrical and then I also have to do a reflected ceiling plan of the same floor that includes lighting, HVAC, and finished materials. I was just wondering what the difference is?

Answer:

The floor plan is taken at an approximate elevation of 5' AFF (above finished floor). This will show walls, fixtures, etc. The reflected ceiling plan is just what it sounds like, the ceiling. This will show the layout for the grid, lights, HVAC supplies and returns, sprinkler heads, etc. They supply different information to different contractors.
