What does a Piping Designer do?

Piping designers develop designs and plans for piping systems and related plumbing infrastructures. They create models, drawings, and schematics, often in 2D and 3D formats using a variety of designing programs and tools. They often work in close collaboration with planners, builders, developers, and other teams involved in the project. They conduct studies and perform calculations to determine feasibility of plans and create demonstration materials. They modify existing designs to reflect required updates and changes. They craft and deliver proposals and presentations.

Piping designers typically have at least an associate degree or equivalent technical credentials or training, and a background of developing piping systems drawings and plans. They must be experienced using CAD programs and related drafting and drawing tools. These roles require strong project management skills.
