agree  Tony M: Here, it would probably be more appropriate to say 'aforementioned', since it is so close, and hence hardly really 'above'; in fact, it might be even more natural to simply say 'said drawings' or even 'these drawings'.

agree  Sheila Wilson: Highly likely in the context. Although I do agree with Tony that it simply needs to read "these drawings"
