When a plane takes off, it looks like a graceful motion of the plane lifting from the ground and gradually rising out of sight. What isn’t seen is the work pilots do to adjust to even small factors ranging from weight, wind and even more. Construction, too, can look like every piece is moving just right at every moment.

Like pilots, many on the team work behind the scenes to make sure execution goes as planned. MEP professionals play a special role in this, leveraging technical building expertise with designers and other project partners to make sure what’s in the drawings becomes a reality in the field. Sometimes, that means collaboration to iron out the finer details of a design.

This edition of If These Walls Could Talk… looks at how MEP pros can make great things happen in design management to deliver quality.
