Coordinated Drawing/ Shop Drawing / Composite Services Drawings / As Built drawings

Shop Drawings are an essential component of the design sector. Technical drawings called "shop drawings" show a building's structure in great detail. The components are represented visually by symbols, letters, and lines.

Various kinds of construction drawings are produced at various stages of the building process. Each with unique benefits, significance, and relevance.

These documents are crucial for building complex structures and ensuring that everyone knows their role.

We customize our MEP/HVAC Shop Drawing Services in line with our client's requirements. We conduct active discussions with them to acquire a clear picture of their requirements and prepare a systematic plan and set specific deadlines for deliverables. We specialize in shop drawings for all trades and on multiple platforms so that they can be directly fed into the pre-fab software.

1. Coordinated Drawing

The generation of coordinated drawing drawings for MEPF services makes good use of 3D models.

From this clash-free model when the clash detection and removal process is finished, we generate coordinated MEPF drawings.

We can confirm that the structural and aesthetic components of a building, as well as our spatially linked MEP building services models, adhere to technical requirements and limits.

Coordination of MEP services like HVAC, plumbing/hydraulic, firefighting, and electrical 3D models with architectural, structural, and reflective ceiling plans results in Coordinated Service Drawings (CSD).

It is made sure that these services don't physically or functionally prevent one another.

These are completed while closely complying to numerous international standards and the Client's requirements / specifications.

2. MEPF Shop Drawings

A contractor, subcontractor, manufacturer, or supplier creates a shop drawing for the production, assembly, and installation of prefabricated components on a construction site.

In order to be executed on location, shop drawings are more detailed than a design drawing. A shop drawing, as a result, displays more construction specifics than a design drawing.

Shop drawings are schematic diagrams that detail measurements, production standards, and fabrication requirements for prefabricated components.

To provide excellent customer service, MEPF contractors must have the capacity to assess complex building systems and manage construction workflows efficiently.

In addition to meeting local building rules and construction standards, their goals include minimizing construction costs and completing jobs more quickly.

Without precise onsite and offsite prefabrication information, contractors can hardly accomplish their BIM goals in today's construction industry.

Because of this, architects, engineers, and fabricators who work on building construction projects place a high importance on MEPF shop drawings.

Layout drawings provide multidimensional views based on user-defined criteria and also include schedules, annotations, and other information required to build, analyze, lift, move, and erect a variety of mechanical components.

A design coordination process actively supports both 3D and BIM models as well as 2D design layouts for the purpose of preventing clashes during the construction phase that were previously only discovered in the field.

Shop drawing coordination may identify numerous system conflicts and locations that require 3D modeling in a 2D layout.

The design-level concepts will be translated into fabrication-level documentation for projects that are based on a 3D model.

By eliminating connection problems and enabling details to be based on an extensive structural view, three-dimensional models expedite the entire coordination process.

The process of submitting shop drawings is streamlined, and it might include a lot of data from different suppliers and fabricators, including assemblies, mock-ups, timelines, schematics, technical specifications, and product data information.

Architectural, civil, and structural shop drawings for a project are combined to make MEPF shop drawings.

The mechanical, electrical, and sanitary components inside a structure can be manufactured, installed, assembled, and maintained with their assistance.

MEP shop drawings provide architectural construction document sets more cohesion.

Engineers and contractors can use the drawing sets to obtain exact specifications and spot problems before construction even starts.

This helps to cut labor expenditures, time, and costs.

Every building has an own set of MEP drawings that are produced after professionals from shop drawing services carefully review the building design documents.

3. Composite Services Drawings

A detailed representation that includes every geometric shape needed for a single device and is organized in their correct relationships.

Also known as Composite Pattern, Design Drawing, Engineering Drawing, Layout, and Master Drawing Techniques for Architectural Design Drawing.


4. As Built drawings

Every building project must have as-built drawings.

An as-built drawing is primarily used to recreate the project as it was built by the contractor and to note any alterations that were made when the project was being built.

Important details, such as shop drawing changes, design changes, field changes, approved and unapproved changes made during construction, and any small or significant modifications made to the final project are all contained in the final sets of as-built drawings.

A current copy of the as-built drawings should be accessible for reference current conditions at any time over the course of the project.

Creating as-built drawings helps you to visualize the changes being made and how they will affect the rest of the project. As you can imagine, any construction project experiences numerous changes and modifications from the original building plan before completion.

It also illustrates what the original idea was before any alterations were made, which can be important in seeing the difference in the project as time goes on.

Why Shop Drawing Needed:

  • Engineers and designers evaluate how well the item's fabrication complies with the design and construction documentation.
  • To ensure that every concrete reinforcing member is constructed in line with the structural integrity of the property, structural engineers use drawings. This results in exact construction.
  • They are utilised by manufacturers to acquire a clear understanding of the materials and requirements as well as approval from the design team for the best materials to use, the components to use, and the assembly instructions.
  • MEP (Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing) specialists utilise shop drawings to gain a clear idea of how to create ductwork, electrical components, and pipework on a construction site.
  • Working together and coordinating with BIM data to monitor the entire project proposal and identify building conflicts before fabrication and construction begin.
  • Shop drawings with BIM 3D modelling allow for the creation of a precise design model, schedule optimisation, accurate cost analysis, quantity take-offs, improved production standards, and easier handover. As a result, efficient coordination and collaboration between tasks that cross functional boundaries may be accomplished.
  • Shop drawings help members define their roles and responsibilities, increase cooperation, and lower risks and liabilities.
