Project Highpoints
Project Synopsis
MEP Coordination & MEP Shop Drawings
MEP Coordination and MEP Shop Drawings of a Luxury Resort
Project Objective

The objective of the project was to create 2D MEP Coordination and Shop Drawings for buildings for a prestigious 5 start resort in the Caribbean. The client had provided us with the 2D design drawings for Architecture, Structure and MEP. The catch here was that the Builder’s Work Drawings were already created and the coordination had to be done to suite the Builder’s Work.

Client Summary

The project was carried out for a Dominica based Construction company which had secured a contract for the construction of a 5 star Luxury Resort in the Caribbean. The resort is a well-known name globally with its presence in the Luxurious Hospitality industry across several global locations.

Project Deliverables

2D MEP Coordinated Shop Drawings

Challenges
  • Missing information in the design drawings provided by the client was the biggest challenge of this project. As a result, we had to raise several RFIs to obtain the information.
  • The response time to the RFIs raised was very slow. We had to switch the work from one Apartment to another in absence of the response for the RFIs.
  • Builder’s Work Drawings were created before the coordination and hence, the coordination had to be done to suite the Builder’s work.
  • Delivering the entire project in two months was a big challenge given the volume of work, need for additional information, and the slow response time to our RFIs from the client.
