MEP coordination drawings & shop drawings
We provide MEP drafting services in the construction industry: MEP coordination drawings & shop drawings, 3D BIM models & renders. MEP drawings for duct, plumbing, HVAC piping, fire protection, electrical, architectural in PDF, DXF and DWG format. Compatible with AutoCAD™.
ShopDrawings.com was created under the name of Contractor Technical Services (CTS, Inc.) by David Fleming in 1980.
Duct shop drawings include: duct, mechanical equipment, diffusers, registers, duct sleeves (if required) and elevations.
Plumbing coordination drawings include: pipes types specification, sleeves (if required), invert and center elevations at each branch and at drains locations.
HVAC piping coordination drawings include: pipes types specification, sleeves (if required), invert and center elevations at each branch and at drains locations.
Fire protection coordination drawings include: pipes types specification, sprinkler heads, center elevation for each main branch, invert elevation for sloping branches.
Electrical coordination drawings include: electrical conduits types specification, center elevation.
Our 3D MEP coordination can be done directly in our own CAD software, or through Navisworks™.
Coordination of all MEP trades
When designed responsible of the full coordination of a project, we are able to solve all trade clashes in-house and remove the need for coordination meetings. We find that the MEP coordination of a project moves forward way faster and we are able to quickly provide coordinated MEP drawings.
Online meetings & real-time editing
When our clients require complex changes or need specific elevation for their MEP trades, we like to set up online meetings so they can view our editing in real-time and confirm that the new design is exactly what they want.
Collaboration & coordination on Navisworks™
When collaborating with third parties responsible of other MEP trades, we set up Navisworks™, align each trade to the architectural model and lead online coordination meetings. We create our own 3D architectural model and structural model.
File sharing through BlueBeam Studio™
For ease of access, we work with BlueBeam Studio™ to share our files. We can host projects online and send you an invitation, so you can view our latest DWG files and our 3D models. Get your free version of BlueBeam™ at: www.bluebeam.com
We create BIM models for each trade to ensure a clash-free project. We offer different types of 3D MEP coordinated drawings.
Essential 3D Model (E3M)
E3M being simplistic in their design, they are great for contractors in need of quick models while staying in their budget. Our E3M include: architecture, structure, ceilings, lights, diffusers and each trade we drafted, such as ductwork, pipes and electrical conduits.
Detailed 3D Model (D3M)
D3M are greatly detailed and include all E3M elements, plus: flex duct connections, detailed AC & roof top units, water closets, lavatories, furniture, trees, plants, etc.
Realistic 3D Render (R3R)
Our R3R renders are available for our D3M only. They display elements, lighting and textures. Share realistic renders of your projects to attract more customers!
