Clash-coordinated MEP shop drawings (Also known as Fabrication Drawings) with specified BIM LOD (Level of Detail) ease the creation, fabrication, installation, assembly, and facility management process of the design-build process. BimZoom’s clash coordinated shop drawing services include Mechanical/HVAC, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire protection, Architectural, Structural, and Façade shop drawings. Our MEP BIM Modelers use Autodesk Revit for clash-coordinated MEP shop drawings/MEP drawings.

Experienced MEP engineers provide detailed MEP fabrication drawings and mechanical shop drawings including duct detailing water supply detailing, and panel distribution drawings. We have extensive experience in handling MEP engineering projects, from detail to drafting. Our coordination drawings are created and assessed through BIM, adhering in accordance with strict quality requirements, which are followed by professional drafters.

Electrical Shop Drawing & Plumbing Shop Drawing

An electrical shop drawing is a technical representation of the electrical system or the components of the electrical system installed in a built facility. Electrical shop drawings/fabrication drawings are an integral part of the construction process. It assists site engineers, architects, electrical contractors, and project managers to extract the required data for the installation of electrical components on the building premises. Electrical drawings in construction facilitate professionals with precise technical data which can be used to customize the building’s electrical system according to the required specifications. Power supply and distribution, control systems, access and security systems, information and communication systems, and interior and outdoor lighting are all examples of electrical systems found inside a building.

Plumbing Shop Drawings:

Plumbing shop drawings or plumbing drawings represent a detailed layout of the plumbing system in a building. Plumbing drawings represent the arrangement of the system to provide a clear idea and precise communication of the design intent to the plumbing contractor and engineers. The plumbing system in a building includes components such as piping systems, building drainage, garbage disposals, sewerage, and wastewater carriers. They also show fluid and air transportation for heating and cooling, potable and non-potable water supply, fuel gas piping, and waste removal from a building. MEP drawings for plumbing or plumbing shop drawings can be used as a reference by manufacturers to manufacture parts of the systems as per the client’s requirements and building specifications. Our shop drawing services for plumbing drawings ensure the accurate arrangement of plumbing components and detailed technical details in the MEP drawings. 

Mechanical Shop Drawing

Mechanical shop drawings/HVAC shop drawings facilitate the detailed layouts and technical specifications of the mechanical/HVAC components & systems of a building. Mechanical shop drawings include plans and layouts of components like heating vents, air conditioning systems, HVAC ducts, elevator layouts, detailed layouts for escalators, ventilation systems of a building, and components of the heating and cooling systems. These comprehensive engineering shop drawings for mechanical/HVAC components depict detailed layouts of vertical transportation systems and their components, such as passenger & goods lifts, escalators, and travellators, as well. HVAC duct shop drawings, also known as ducting drawings in construction, offer a detailed layout of the arrangement of HVAC components in a building. Mechanical shop drawings in construction not only represent a detailed layout of the system but also communicate a precise intent of the design of the components with technical details to the MEP engineers. BimZoom’s team of experts ensures accuracy while providing shop drawing services to their clients.

Fire Protection Shop Drawings

Fire protection shop drawings are visual and technical representations of the fire protection elements. The fire protection industry relies heavily on fire protection shop drawings which are also known as installation drawings, fabrication drawings, or working plans for fire protection design. This design package, prepared by or on behalf of the installation contractor, comprises the most critical details of the fire sprinkler system design. Pipes, sprinklers, hangers, pressure gauge control valves, check valves, and other fire prevention elements are depicted in fire protection shop drawings. The fire protection shop drawings facilitate a streamlined workflow for the installation of fire protection components in a building. It also saves overall cost and a considerable amount of time in the construction project.

Benefits of MEP Shop Drawings

  • Clear Design Information – Fabrication Drawings or MEP drawings hold detailed information about how the product will be assembled along with details such as dimensions, weight, joints, and connections. The clarity of documents with 3D BIM model details gives the fabricator a vision to produce exact output at the construction site.
  • Documentation – The actual MEP shop drawings act as a referral document in case of any flaw. With any discrepancies, while building, the contractor can refer to MEP shop drawings to detect the error. The actual drawing dimension acts as a supportive document while seeking approval to build.
  • Accurate Cost Estimation – Scheduling and costing are important factors in construction. Through detailed design drawings, accurate material estimation could be assessed. This ensures the precise scheduling of required resources, leading to accurate costing.
  • Clash Coordinated Drawings – Shop Drawings created from Building Information Modeling (BIM) in Revit detect clashes at the design stage.
  • Clash-coordinated MEP shop drawings are an asset in building construction planning, leading to a smooth installation.

What is the difference between Shop drawings & As-Built Drawings

As-built drawings are updated plans that are made after the building process is done. During the renovation, remodeling, or refurbishment process, as-built drawings are used as a guide.

Shop drawings are detailed representations of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, architectural, or structural components, and they help determine how these components will fit into the building structure. Shop drawings are created before the beginning of a construction project.


Why do I need MEP Shop Drawings?

Mechanical Shop Drawings:

Mechanical shop drawing services are used for air conditioning and heating, venting, and air conditioning. HVAC shop drawings include the entire specifications and locations.

Electrical Shop Drawings:

Through detailed electrical shop drawings, contractors can analyze electrical services. These include power supply and distribution, access and security system, and interior and exterior lighting. Electrical shop drawings represent the locations of placing electrical switches, wiring paths and load shedding information.

Plumbing Shop Drawings:

MEP shop drawings of plumbing include a piping system for sanitary, water supply systems, and fixtures. Pipe spool drawings or Fabrication drawings from BIM are created to manage the proper on-site installation. The spool is a section of the piping system. These assembly drawings of pipes and components are delivered in prefabrication on-site. Spool drawings guide in assembling the fixture demonstrating the physical sequence of equipment and connections.

What is the difference between shop drawings and construction drawings?


Construction Drawings VS Shop Drawings

Construction drawings are a graphical representation of the construction process. It includes architectural drawingsmechanical drawingselectrical drawingsHVAC drawings, and other design drawings. Whereas shop drawings are typically required for prefabricated components. Construction design drawing services are used to represent buildings or structures, whilst shop drawings are used to describe specific construction components. Shop drawings, in contrast to design and construction drawings, give more detailed and precise information.
