A plumbing system is very important to have installed in modern day buildings for meeting the expectations we have of comfortable living. The same applies for both residential and commercial properties alike, however, the demand that is put on the plumbing system can vary greatly. Our approach to a commercial plumbing project is different for this reason, and when an official overseeing the construction of an outlet of stores in Nashville, TN gave us a call about helping perform the plumbing installation for the building, we scheduled an evaluation of the job site.
Our team of professional technicians applied the level of special attention needed to finish the entire project correctly and precisely. This level of attention is important because a supply of clean water and the disposal of wastewater will be constant and seamless when you have a large influx of people utilizing the plumbing system in a restaurant or storefront, for example.
Not all of the buildings in the outlet of stores had the same water requirements or need for plumbing functions. Specific plumbing grids are necessary for certain functions, and won’t work right if they are not set up accordingly. Accurate planning took knowing what types of buildings these were so as to equip the building with the systems it needed to best serve the businesses inside and customers that would arrive there.
Determining the average amount of people that would regularly occupy the building, as well as the amount of customers that were projected to visit there was the next step in calculating the average water flow the plumbing systems needed. A commercial plumbing system may be much more complex than a residential system, but very simple in comparison to that of a hospital or hotel for example.
The stage of building we were called to begin working on the plumbing was early enough in the process of construction that we would not have been able to start installing the system if we had been ready that day! The reason is due to how much of planning out the system would have to be done prior to installation. Our team of technicians would also have to work hand in hand with other teams on the same project to get properly oriented to the building for installing the system just right and in a way that would make sense for use in the building.
After these stages of planning and installation, once all parts of the system had been completely done, the last step was to plan the responsibilities to the relationship of the plumbing and how to go about the maintenance of keeping it in good shape. Following a scheduled routine of evaluating and maintaining the integrity of the plumbing was done at that time. Plumbing that is left to incur damage from smaller problems almost always creates hard to manage and costly problems, and regular maintenance can prevent those problems.
