DUCTWORK, HVAC PIPING, PLUMBING, FIRE PROTECTION & ELECTRICAL
Who are we?
ShopDrawings.com is a CAD drafting company created under the name of Contractor Technical Services (CTS, Inc.) by David Fleming in the mid-1980s.
As Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) software became popular, we decided to create our own CAD program adapted for our specific needs, instead of using other popular CAD software with slow drawing processes and never-ending pull down menus.
Today, we have the best of both worlds: fast editing through our CAD software with a final result as a 3D model. We also provide .DWG files for the convenience of our customers.
We are now located in Hagerstown, Maryland and provide CAD services countrywide.
We provide 2D & 3D coordination shop drawings for MEP trades: ductwork, plumbing, HVAC piping, fire protection and electrical. We always include: floor plans, column lines, ceilings, lights, sizes and dimensioning to the grid for each trade.
Our BIM models are compatible with AutoDesk Suite and allow us to work with third parties in NavisWorks Manage for collision check and coordination.
Ductwork: Duct, equipment connected to duct, diffusers, registers, sleeves (if required) and elevations.
Plumbing & HVAC piping: Pipes specifying the type of pipe (CW, VENT, SAN, ST, etc.), sleeves (if required), invert and center elevations at each branch and at drains locations.
Sprinklers: Pipes, sprinkler heads and center elevation at each branch.
Structure: Provided if the structure is complex or if required by customer. Include beams, joists and sleeves with elevations.
