Solutions for cost-effective and bold architecture, design, and construction

Simplify construction challenges and reduce costs

When designing, constructing, and modernizing buildings, Evac vacuum drainage gives you the flexibility needed for cost-effective building, remodeling, conversion, extension, and renovation work. A short payback time can be achieved thanks to the lower water and sewage costs associated with our vacuum collection systems.

Vacuum collection systems

Cost-effective remodeling, conversion, extension, and renovation

Evac vacuum drainage solutions make building remodeling, conversion, extension, and renovation more feasible and cost effective. Vacuum drainage lets you reduce or eliminate core drills and slab penetrations, allowing architectural and historical features to be preserved. Asbestos abatement is easily avoided and saw cuts and trenching in tiles and concrete can be eliminated or reduced.

Vacuum drainage makes single fixture additions simpler and more viable and allows for more convenient, cost-effective, and frequent remodels and additions. Lower-level tenant space can be accessed with minimal disturbance, damage, and cost, and sub-grade and finish slab integrity and appearance can be improved. Vacuum drainage systems also have a smaller pipe diameter than traditional systems, making installation simpler and more flexible. The risk of cutting in-slab electrical, refrigeration, and sewer lines can be eliminated entirely, and the need for floor X-rays can be eliminated or reduced. In addition, with lower levels of dust and groundwork and higher levels of site safety, any disturbance to current tenants is significantly reduced. Likewise, when remodeling stores that will remain open during the work, sales floor safety hazards can be reduced, making it safer for everyone.

Feasible and cost-effective underground and suspended slab construction

With vacuum drainage you can:

  • Eliminate or reduce core drills and slab penetrations
  • Install kitchens and toilets more easily underground, keeping the above-ground level for customers
  • Eliminate or reduce roof penetrations, floor drains, and clean outs
  • Have a single collecting point, with no lifting pump station needed
  • Remove the need for soil dewatering and remediation processes
  • Reduce or eliminate the need for floor X-rays
  • Easily route pipes around obstacles
  • Reduce engineering costs
  • Reduce heavy work at depth with an above-ground wastewater collection point
  • Keep your wastewater collection point on the same level as bathrooms, kitchens, and any drainage collection points.

Amount of water saved with Evac vacuum toilets

Preserve historical and architectural features

As it has a smaller pipe diameter than traditional systems, vacuum drainage allows architectural and historical features to be routed round and preserved. There is no need for a continuous slope – effluent can be transported around obstacles and routed through the ceiling – reducing floor, slab, and wall penetration. There is also no need for soil excavation.

Achieve green building certification

Evac vacuum saving toilets use only 1.2 liters/0.3 gallons per flush – a huge water saving when compared to traditional systems. They can help your building achieve LEED and BREEAM certification, as can our advanced wastewater treatment systems for water recycling. Your lower water and sewage bill will also translate to a remarkable return on investment, with a short payback time.

 

Reduce construction time and cost

Vacuum drainage helps you decrease construction and remodeling time and allow last minute adjustments at a lower cost. Asbestos abatement can be avoided and core drills and slab penetrations can be reduced, or eliminated. Fees associated with permits, fixtures, impact, sewers, and inspections can all be lowered or eliminated entirely. Saw cuts and trenching into tiles and concrete can also be reduced or eliminated, as can roof penetrations, floor drains, and clean outs. Vacuum systems make single fixture additions simpler and more viable, and remove the need for soil dewatering and remediation processes. Installation is quick and efficient, and can be carried out by local contractors with Evac training and supervision.

Pipes are easily routed around obstacles and construction delays due to weather are reduced or eliminated, as are the costs and time needed for change orders. The risk of cutting in-slab electrical, refrigeration, and sewer lines can be avoided completely, and the need for floor X-rays can be eliminated or reduced. Vacuum drainage helps prevent damage to floor drains, clean outs, and vent stacks during slab pour, and reduces the health hazards associated with exposing working drain lines for tie-ins. An above-ground wastewater collection point reduces the need for heavy work at depth, and there is a reduced risk of construction standby. Wall penetration can be reduced or eliminated, and limitations on project sequencing can be removed. Vacuum drainage systems also have a smaller pipe diameter than traditional systems, reducing construction times and costs significantly.
