Division 15 - Plumbing Contractor as Coordinator
How it Works...


Coordination between the trades is all about maximizing the efficiency of the installation process by identifying potential conflicts and collisions between the trades prior to each trade fabricating and/or installing that trade on the job site. There is a hierarchy of sorts involved in coordination that helps to determine which trade will accommodate another trade when a conflict is detected and which trade will be scheduled to install before another. When the plumbing contractor hires JPK to develop shop drawings, but is also assigned the job of coordinating the other trades with their plumbing shop drawings, JPK offers this additional service further assists the plumbing contractor in the coordination process as follows:
  1. Serving as a central agent representing the plumbing contractor's interest by collecting and assembling all shop drawings from each trade;
  2. Providing a color conversion process for the plumbing contractor that allows each trade drawing to be overlaid on top of the HVAC shop drawings developed by others;
  3. Converting all drawings to the same scale as the plumbing shop drawings by JPK for uniformity of the review process and comparison of one trade to another;
  4. Deleting all HVAC and other trade shop drawing information (by others) that is not relevant to the coordination process;
  5. Identifying potential conflicts between the trades and/or with the structure of the building;
  6. Assigning each trade the role of resolving the conflict(s) based on the most logical solution as a recommendation by JPK;
  7. Continuing with the coordination process with each trade until all known conflicts have been resolved;
  8. Making any plumbing shop drawing changes that will further the coordination process when changing the plumbing trade is the most logical solution to resolve a particular conflict;
  9. Providing PDF and/or CAD files for the production of a color coordination drawing for use in a pre-planned coordination meeting held by the GC for the purpose of having each trade sign off on the agreed location of that trade for the install process.
