MEP SHOP DRAWINGS &
Nation online services, U.S.
We provide MEP drafting services for the construction industry. We offer shop drawings and MEP coordination for Ductwork, HVAC, Plumbing, Fire Protection and Electrical. Our DWG Coordination Drawings are compatible with AutoCAD™ and can be used for 3D MEP coordination in Navisworks™
2D annotated drawings
Our MEP coordination drawings and 3D models include: units per approved submittals, diffusers per RCP layout, reflected ceilings, wall and floor sleeves when requested. Annotations: trades sizes, top / bottom or center elevations, sheet metal length (TDC, slip & drive), units identification, diffusers identification, pipes types identification, electrical conduits identification and tags, room IDs.
For ease of access and due to limitations of emails file size, we work with BlueBeam Studio™ and Dropbox™ 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.
Full MEP & FP Coordination
When designed responsible of the full coordination of a project, we are able to solve most trade clashes in-house and remove the need for coordination meetings.
We find that the coordination of a project moves forward way faster and we are able to quickly provide coordinated MEP drawings.
Collaboration with third parties
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 from the contract drawings.
Online meetings & real-time editing
When our clients require complex changes or need specific elevations for their MEP trades, we like to set up online meetings so they can view our editing in real-time and confirm that it’s the design they exactly want.
Our drafting method is so quick and our team so efficient, that we can make changes before our customers finish describing the change they want to see!
ShopDrawings.com was created under the name of Contractor Technical Services (CTS, Inc.) by David Fleming in 1980.
Today, our team is formed by a passionate and energetic crew who enjoys both small, quick turnaround projects and large, complex jobs that challenge us.
BIM / 3D modeling
Our policy is to model all projects to ensure accuracy, economy and efficiency in its design. Therefore, we create BIM models for each trade to ensure a clash-free project. We offer different Levels of Development for 3D MEP coordinated models.
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 trades.
Detailed 3D Model (D3M)
D3M are greatly detailed and include all E3M elements, plus: flex duct, detailed AC & roof top units and RTUs connections, water closets, lavatories, etc.
We can also make Realistic 3D Renders (R3R), which include realistic lighting and textures.
