MEP Shop drawing is one of our core area of expertise. We have a team of highly qualified engineers and drafters who assist MEP Contractors and HVAC fabricators in generating coordinated shop and fabrication drawings.
During a construction project, many systems like plumbing, HVAC and electrical systems need to be installed in a structure by many contractors. Therefore coordination drawings are utilized to ensure that each contractor gets a place for his system. The coordination drawings, as the name indicates, coordinate the needs of each system installer and ensure that all are properly installed. Coordinated MEP shop drawing allows to get a clear plan of action to each systems contractor. It enables the contractors to prevent problems arising during construction.

A drawing or a set of drawing, which are required for prefabricated components like trusses, elevators, structural steel, windows, cabinets, appliances, mill-work and air handling units and produced by contractor, supplier, manufacturer, fabricator or sub-contractors are called shop drawing. As shop drawing is the drawn version of information in the construction documents, it gives more detail than the construction documents. MEP shop drawing which emphasizes on particular product or installation, has a very different style from that of the architect’s drawing.

MEP Shop Drawing

A combined 3-D rendering of the construction project by combining all architectural, structural and trades shop drawings is known as Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing (MEP) coordinated shop drawing. The MEP coordination drawings that include HVAC, electrical, plumbing, piping and duct-work layout drawings, enable the engineers for better fabrication, installation, schedule trades and other activities related to construction. It also helps avoid waste of time, money and energy. Along with allowing extraction and manipulation of data for trades and contributors, it also increases accuracy of the building design and delivery process.

Benefits of MEP shop drawings

The construction industries that do not use BIM services are rare nowadays, as it can result in time and cost savings. MEP coordination shop drawing can bring improvements in building quality and productivity through improved off-site fabrication, enhanced plans and better informed trade crews. With the help of efficient coordinated drawings, potential problems are identified before trade’s fabrication and installation on the job site. It enables to view the build project as a whole than as separate drawings.

Uses of MEP Shop Drawings:

Coordination MEP Shop drawings provide support for design build projects in various areas like

• Electrical component technical drawings
• Composite drawings
• Underground and above-ceiling coordination
• Coordinated shop drawings
• Sheet metal drawings
• Pipe fabrication drawings
• HVAC drawings
• Ductwork drawings
• Plumbing construction drawings
• Mechanical piping detail drawings
• Mechanical room HVAC detailed drawings
• Equipment placement

It is sure that MEP shop drawing can provide you cost savings of around 50% and improvements in delivery schedules over 40%. It helps decrease time and money for the engineers and contractors and thus improves the project outcomes.
