PLUMBING SYSTEMS

An important system in any building design is a plumbing system. These systems consist of a network of pipes that distributes fresh drinking and waste water throughout a building. A properly designed plumbing system should bring in fresh water to a building and remove the waste water into a sewer. Typical plumbing fixtures that are sized and selected are: lavatory, sinks, toilets, roof drains, gas boiler, pool, washers, and bathtubs. All of these plumbing fixtures require a network of pipes behind walls to function. Our licensed professional engineers have extensive experience designing theses plumbing systems.

We have extensive experience in the following:

  • International Plumbing Code
  • New water main for domestic use from the street
  • New sanitary drains and traps
  • Stormwater retention
  • Sizing and selecting a piping network from the plumbing system
  • Interact with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection and Con Edison to provide new domestic water service, sprinkler water service, natural gas service, and sewer service.
  • Survey of Existing Building Conditions

We are involved in all phases of the design process, which includes the following:

  • Conceptual Schematic Design
  • Design Development
  • Construction Document Preparation (including drawings and specifications)
  • Construction Administration
