The MEP Shop Drawing serve as important part of Construction Shop Drawings that include HVAC, plumbing, electrical, duct-work and piping allow the engineers for better fabrication, insertion and schedule trades. It is beneficial for saving the money, time and energy. One of the important advantages which MEP Shop Drawing provide is the accuracy of the building design and delivery process along with the taking out and handling of data for trades and contributors.

  • Pipe fabrication drawings
  • Underground and above-ceiling coordination
  • HVAC drawings

  • Mechanical room HVAC detailed drawings

There are certain methods to alleviate the accuracy of MEP Shop Drawing:

  • By improving off-site fabrication, strengthen plans and well know ledged trade crews.
  • MEP Shop Drawings is a broad category with the emphasize on “Mechanical Equipment” and “Electrical Equipment” which are very incorporating into another. It is more preferable to create subcategories for specific kind of equipment. Further on, build and assign these to geometry in the families. It increases the clarity and understanding of the shop drawings.
  • One of the favorable tool for MEP Shop Drawing is REVIT, because it can grip entire data of BIM that can easily mark and make the notation of things needed. It can also produce multi-faceted tag families that can address different specifications such as length, duct size, top and bottom elevation etc.

An accurate MEP Shop Drawing helps to identify the possible error before the trade’s fabrication and installation at the physical site. It enables to create the vision the project, firstly as whole than as a separate drawings.
