MEP Drafting

MEP Drafting

MEP (M&E) drafting encompasses CAD drawings for MEP design and MEP coordination workflows and covers all areas of the building where MEP services exist, including risers, plant rooms and floor layouts for underfloor, mid-level and within the ceiling void. Effective and accurate drawings are used for design progression, MEP installation purposes and also for building record and maintenance purposes.

Designs and marked-up images received as an input are converted to MEP CAD drawings for consulting mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, consultants and contractors.
