The construction of a new building requires the design and implementation of several sophisticated systems, many of which have significant overlap with the structure's plumbing. To make sure that these systems are properly designed and executed, especially when the level of complexity is high, it is a very good idea to have a plumbing engineer as part of the project team. Here is a brief introduction to the role along with five reasons why this professional can improve building safety, security and functionality.
In a new construction project, a plumbing engineer can be responsible for designing the sanitary sewer system from the building to the point where it connects to a municipal sewer system, an on-side disposal system or specialized containment site. This helps control standard sewer and wastewater that accumulates as part of daily activities in the building. If there are specialized sewage and drain system needs, he can also accommodate those. For example, the engineer can design drainage that separates wastewater streams if one of the streams needs specialized treatment before being diverted into a municipal sewer system.
