The required space for all the equipment must be discussed with the project's space planner. Accessibility for maintenance and repair must be considered with the client at this time.
Plans and specifications are then developed into construction documents that contain the design intent, system layout, equipment descriptions, and component details. The schematic diagram is a simple communication tool to convey the design intent of the pumping system. The communication is directed toward the client, the design team, the code authority, the contractor, and the historical record of the project. The system layout is then transformed on to floor plans and elevations. The equipment schedules, specifications, and details complete the construction document package.
