AC have the collision function, but what I need is: installation of pipelines, equipment requires working space, AC how to detect the distanece the equipment and the building construction.

Please read the section headings to best determine where to place your post.

I don't use the collision detection at all but I would say that you could over-size your pipes and equipment to allow for the working space, do your collision detection and then when happy re-size back to normal (that is assuming you can resize from the centre of your pipework).

Otherwise I would say you will have to model the working space separately, check that with your collision detection and then run your pipework in that space.
And of course check for collisions again with the pipework just to be sure.
