O2I Provided MEP Design and Drafting of the Entire Air Distribution System for a Huge Commercial Space

Case Study on MEP Design and Drafting to Air Distribution System

The Client

As a leading engineering services provider in the AEC sector, our client required assistance with mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) design and drafting for one of their largest projects - a 10 000 square-foot library space.

After finding our services online, the client contracted Outsource2india (O2I) to complete the project through such tasks as -

  • Designing and drafting the air distribution system
  • Designing the associated chilled water pipe
  • Conceiving and drafting necessary ductwork
  • Coordinating ductwork routing based on seating arrangements

Project Challenges

No project is without its challenges. For our team, the biggest problems in completing this project were -

  • The massive size of the space was the biggest challenge our team faced in creating the plans for this space. It was essential to maintain the visual appeal of the space and account for the different uses of each area as well as seating arrangements when drafting various MEP elements.
  • With an impeccable reputation on the line, our team needed to meet the client's high standards of quality, affordability, and turnaround time. We met this challenge head-on by assigning a team of high-skilled professionals to the task and by working closely with the client each step of the way.
  • The client wanted this massive project completed within a three-week timeframe - not impossible, but certainly challenging. Our team worked out a straightforward step-by-step process to ensure the target date was met with confidence.
  • Time zone was another challenge faced by our team in the completion of this project. The client was based in California, which meant that their time zone was almost exactly opposite of our team's time zone. Due to the important nature of this project, we worked carefully to communicate at mutually respectable times and via email as much as possible to complete the task promptly.

The Solution

To complete this large project in a timely fashion while providing high-level quality, our team worked through the following process -

  • First, we received AutoCAD drawings of the project and more information and drawings in .pfd format.
  • Next, we worked with the information provided to outline our portion of the project from start to finish and set up goal dates of completion of each step to be sure the project stayed on target.
  • Key team members were assigned to important tasks, including a draftsman, MEP designer, and a QC lead.
  • The team used AutoCAD2021 to develop a pipe routing plan and utilized McQuay PipeSizer, McQuay DuctSizer software, to complete the MEP drafting.
  • Files were sent for review and then adjusted based on the client's final feedback.

The Results

The client was delighted with the final files and plans. They expressed appreciation for our team's ability to meet their tight deadline while still providing the high-quality results they are known for.
