Abstract
Everett [1997] described three plumbing and piping construction activities that consume 10% or more of the total work for the trade in southwestern Michigan. These activities were: install pipe hangers, install piping systems, and install fixtures. In the pipe trades breakout session, three installation activities and three tasks related to piping systems installation were added. The three activities added were: install equipment, install deck inserts (i.e., site prep), and plan reading and detailing. One additional task, site cleanup, could also be considered a required task for most other activities related to the pipe, electrical, and sheet metal trades. Time constraints prevented a full discussion of the additions. After a discussion, a majority of pipe trades breakout session participants suggested modifying the risk scores assigned to several tasks.
