8" natural gas lines. I'm guessing those will be welded by pipe pipe fitters?

All piping at least 2 1/2" and up will be welded. We also have city water, compressed air, Non potable water and some rain water re claim that is smaller bore. The Cooling Tower piping is 24" the Chilled Water is 20" and the Heating Hot water is 16".

I will try and get some pics when i can, i am drawing this job from the office.

Looks like a little saturday side job I'm always fitting into my schedule. Clients always hassling like "please, just come build my entire mechanical systems for my little 38 floor skyrise" sigh, "ok ok, I'll be there saturday, but have the coffee ready"

.. no, clearly that's a huge project! Curious what the timetable is from start to finish and how many teams will be working on that? I've done big projects previously, biggest one being 8 two man teams for a 3 months project. In anycase, keep us updated!

They may have 6-8 guys total but could increase if we get more bid packs. These automotive projects lately have been divided into multiple bid packs. We have 3 right now, one of which is the chiller room. I just ran the bill of material for the heating hot water that i have drawn so far and it is right around 300' of 16". That is the smallest amount of piping of the 3 main services. I believe we will have over 1000' of piping in the chiller room. It will probably be closer to 2000' if you count the risers and all the interconnecting piping. I would imagine close to 12 month's or more on site.
