Does this look right?


Getting some renovations and plumbing done around the office. Here are the sinks and urinals for the new bathroom. These to my knowledge are supposed to be floating vanities/counters.

I dont think the plumbing is going where it should. I would imagine the plumbing is supposed to be a little more 'hidden' and think this is not exactly right? Just wanted to get some feedback as to what you guys think?

Wow, i hope these guys arent liscensed plumber cause if they are they should go back to school.. Where to begin tee on a horizontal not allowed, yes the plumbing should be better concealed the rough on the one sink looks too low and should be tee in the wall not outside the wall also the aav is useless where it is, it should be above flood level rim of the sink but the question to ask is why aren they properly vented. Also the one trap and arm is backpitched so when you use the other sink it will dump into the other trap. You need to start over cause everything is wrong and the work is not professional..good luck

Who's doing this work?
Adding your location to your profile would be a big help with possible code concerns.
First thing I see is the pipes are glued crooked.
Second, not sure how it works where you are but in VA water does not run up hill. That right hand drain is to low.
If the drain had of been higher inside the wall all those lines could have been up higher as well.
This is a case where chrome drains would have at least looked better, or PVC and paint them.

Dont pay them, fire them and rip everything out that they did and have a pro come in there to do it properly.

Thats what I was thinking. I am not a pro, but to me none of that looked like it is supposed to.

Forgot too mention the water line rough thats how its done too. There should be 6-8" spread and located usually 3" above the rough drain not dangling out of the wall like twizzlers.

so i should have this all redone and probably have the wall opened up too?

Move the drain and water lines up and have the vent in the wall up to the roof, correct?

Yes open the walls, no you now the height so rough the drains accordingly with a double sanitary or fixture fitting or you can stack tees, for each set of cabinets and conitnue vents through the roof, you can tie the vents in together before exiting. Water lines also should be properly strapped in wall and spread according to standards. Lav drains should be set at 18" off finished floor and water should be 21".

Wow I would suggest you fire these clueless hacks. Then get ready to open up the walls because obviously no one from the government has inspected the job.

American Disability Act- for people with disabilities.
Urinals, lavs and toilets are set at special heights for them
