Is it bad that I'm aroused?

At what point does it become easier to put all the meters closer to the point of entry with one feeder pipe and put a ladder up for the technician?

Can whoever did this do my cable management in my PC

Germans are perfectionists. Especially when it Comes to gas

While others say its some kind of porn, its just good craftsmanship to say the least. Very well done.

Is this The Foundry in Buffalo, NY?
8 Dec 2017 01:26 - +26
Why do they do this on the outside?
8 Dec 2017 02:35 - +18
This is what I hope to do in Factorio some day

I wouldn't call this "perfectionist" so much as standard, professional installation.

The top of this has been on r/plumbing's landing page for years now, hasn't it?

It looks like organ piping.

Loving these factorio vibes

I am professional piping designer, my designs initially look like this on projects. In the process from the initial design to construction many changes are implemented by various departments, vendors, and the client. The end product usually ends up looking like a mess, because of time and budgets constraints. It makes me smile to see this layout in place. I am jealous.

Give those pipe fitters a raise; damn that's beautiful. As a chemical engineer, I've been to a few retrofitted plants and they're always a mess.

I saw this and thought it belongs in r/oddlysatisfying. Then I saw it was already there and was oddly satisfied.

There is an easy formula in the PipeFitter's Blue Book for these kind of pipe runs.

Thank for for saying perfectionist and not "omg so ocd" :)

When I look at this I wonder why anyone would do it any other way.

I work in the sprinkler industry, but something like this is not perfectionist... it's just necessary on a many-unit kind of building. I saw the Avalon with the mall under it near north Boston, and the gas lines were fucking impressive. Were getting a lot of high end refurbs like this lately too. Gentrification is a good thing.

Portland, Maine? It looks like a building next to Aura!

The silicon lithographer in me hopes that the pipe on the far right terminates just inside the building.

Do they have a choice??? I would assume doing it all askew would actually make the job much harder. Its not cabling where you have flexibility.
8 Dec 2017 03:27 - +2
Not necessarily a perfectionist, more a craftsman who takes pride in his work. The way it used to be. Now everyone wants it done fast, for less.

This is everything to an architectural designer

Terraria wiring. I get like 800 of these formations every time I wire something up in terraria

Got a pic from a messy gas piping?

okay so I guess it's my time to shine. Alot of people are asking why you don't put the meters on top or 1 big line leading up. The main issue is security. If you want you could bring a big line up but then you need to bring pressure. Pressure with natural gas is were the danger is. Most house holds only have between 5-7 wc of pressure (0.25psi) and a leak will usually just dissipate unless the line is completely severed. The main line that comes in from what I can see is probably running 50-75 psi. Where I work we do bring a main on the rooftop but only if it's accessible and there's already a need for more pressure.

I hate that it's "perfectionist" and not just "quality". Mediocre has become the new norm. Sorry feeling a bit cynical today.
8 Dec 2017 02:17 - +2
My gas pipe just grew a little....
8 Dec 2017 05:38 - +2
Uh, how else are they going to do it?
8 Dec 2017 02:51 - +2
not even perfectionist- just how running pipe supposed to be done.
8 Dec 2017 06:36 - +2
No. This is called doing your job correctly.

That's like....art.

My idea of a pipe dream

That's a hell of a lot better than some of the plumbers I've worked with
8 Dec 2017 02:08 - +1
I love seeing attention to detail like this in the field.

Saw it on r/Designporn before a while.
8 Dec 2017 02:08 - +1
All places should arrive to look this clean. I hate seeing shotty workmanship
8 Dec 2017 02:21 - +1
I really don't understand how or why you'd do it any other way.
8 Dec 2017 02:10 - +1
Where is this? I need to live next to it.
8 Dec 2017 02:39 - +1
Beautiful

I think perfectionists exclusively should be accepted to jobs like this.
8 Dec 2017 02:43 - +1
Pride in your work shows , no matter the location, be it in front for all the world to see or in an alley, where few venture but out of necessity .
8 Dec 2017 02:16 - +1
as satisfying and pleasing to look at as this is, is it really the most efficient way to lay these pipes? I love this kind of stuff but I always wonder if it’s practical.
