Dutch term or phrase: installatietechnische tekeningen
In a bullet-point list, after 'bouwkundige tekeningen'. I'm drawing a blank on how you would say this in English. Any suggestions, dear hive mind?

(building) installation drawings


Explanation:
see my comments elsewhere on the page, plus:

"Installation drawings

Installation drawings present the information needed by trades to install part of the works. This may be particularly important for complex installations such as plant rooms, data centres, ventilation systems, underfloor heating, and so on.

For more information see: Installation drawing."

shop drawings


Explanation:
Is this terminology ringing any bells? Not quite as de novo literal as other attempted translations I've seen (cf. the atrocity that is Linguee). "Shop" of course is idiomatic for workshop (not a shop where things are purchased).

What are Shop Drawings?

Contractors in the mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) trades utilize what are known as 'shop drawings' to ensure that the systems they are installing will actually work within the architect's plans. Typically, when an architect designs a building or structure, they do not account for components of the many systems that are integral to the function of the building. A contractor will take the builder's blueprints to a specialized drafting firm who will, essentially, build the structure via computer-aided drafting (CAD), including the contractor's components. This provides a clear view for the contractor and builder of any potential issues they may face when installing certain systems, prior to the start of construction.

agree  freekfluweel: 'installation drawings' show how a component is to be installed, 'shop drawings' show where certain components are planned.
