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.
