Nationwide online services, U.S.
MEP SHOP DRAWINGS &
Nation online services, U.S.
We specialize in drafting and coordinating MEP and FP trades in the construction industry: Shop Drawings and BIM coordination of Ductwork, HVAC piping, Plumbing, Fire Protection and Electrical. We also offer drafting services for raised access floors, millwork and glass work.
Whether your project is a new construction, a renovation or simply requires as-builts, we’ve got you covered.
Advantages of Shop Drawings over Contract Drawings
Contract Drawings are diagrammatic and rarely contain all the information your team needs for fabrication and installation. Many conflicts are overlooked, the most common ones being: insufficient ceiling space to fit multiple trades and overlooking the slopes of pipes for the coordination.
Instead of working with Value Engineering, get Shop Drawings to coordinate trades efficiently, send RFIs early in the construction phase to avoid construction delays, prevent costly field adjustments and save on pre-fabrication costs.
Eliminate the guesswork: Give your shop and field crew the exact information they need.
Our MEP coordination drawings include: identification of trades, trades sizes, elevations, units per approved submittals, duct sheet metal length (TDC, S&D), reflected ceilings and diffusers per RCP layout, wall and floor sleeves when requested and more.
Full MEP & FP Coordination
When designed responsible of the full MEP coordination of a project, we have the capability to resolve the majority of trade clashes internally.
This eliminates the need for coordination meetings, which speeds up the overall coordination of a project and allows us to quickly deliver coordinated MEP drawings.
Leading BIM meetings
When collaborating with third parties responsible of other MEP trades, we set up a Navisworks™ model and align each trade to the architectural model. If the Design Team does not provide 3D models, we create our own architectural and structural models from our study of the Contract Drawings.
We also offer online BIM meeting leading services: clash detection across all trades, clash assignments to each specific trade and verification of successful clash resolution.
Online meetings &
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 is the design they exactly want.
Our drafting method is so quick and our team so efficient, that we often make changes before our customers finish describing the change they want to see!
for BIM projects
Our policy is to model all projects to ensure accuracy, economy and efficiency in its design. As a result, we generate BIM models for all our trades to ensure a seamless and clash-free project.
We offer different Levels of Development for 3D MEP coordinated models.
