Hey guys

I'm from the DMV (DC, MD, VA) area. I have spent 3 years designing plumbing systems for commercial interior fit-outs including office pantries, commercial kitchens, fitness centers etc. I just recently started working for a different company and am now designing plumbing systems for commercial and residential base building projects. I joined this forum to learn from others in the field and also to contribute and lend advice when i can.

Thanks.

when you say designing, what exactly are you designing? the actual piping ? are you licensed? schooling in plumbing? did you work in the field of plumbing doing any work?

I'm not licensed, I went to school for drafting and was hired by a MEP Engineering company as a drafter. I was transferred to the plumbing department and my current title is Plumbing Engineer. The only knowledge I have in plumbing design I have learned from experience. You're right, i'm not a PROFESSIONAL PLUMBER. Thought I could learn from people actually putting the stuff together. Thanks though.

Unfortunately you may be willing to learn but many of these guys may not be willing to teach you. It does appear that tommy, one of the most senior admins feels you belong so I would plead your case(assure them you aren't a diy/hack/doing unlicensed work) and hope for the best.


I used to work with engineers(electrical) so I would like to have you. On the other hand "engineers" are somewhat despised by many in the field so expect some backlash.
