Completed ahead of time.
TECE has been developing and producing bathroom wall sections and system shafts for construction projects since the mid 90s. With the associated high level of prefabrication, TECE helps you to manage time, quality and costs.
Industrially prefabricated modules for bathrooms and sanitary areas significantly reduce time requirements and make calculations more reliable.
In principle, the entire pipework for all media, as well as shut-o devices, water meters, ventilators, sound-absorbing elements and formwork for the ceiling penetration sealing system are all integrated into the walls.
This controlled industrial prefabrication also significantly reduces the probability of making mistakes at the building site.
During the planning phase, TECE application engineers work together with project managers to determine the technical and legal requirements.
In the next step, a customised bathroom wall section concept is developed and tested on a prototype.
Next, the final specifications are incorporated into the production drawings. That is how TECE makes sure that the process is safe.
Just-In-Time at the building site.
TECE delivers finished modules just-in-time to the building site. Set up and connect – all the plumbing and sanitary work is completed in the building shell.
This significantly reduces the need to coordinate work with other trades, which streamlines the process and makes it easier to calculate.
The prefabricated bathroom wall sections are delivered according to a specified schedule in close consultation with the site management.
Depending on the location, containers or swap bodies can also be supplied with bathroom wall sections.
Prefabricated bathroom wall sections also offer considerable advantages in renovation projects. Particularly when the building being renovated is inhabited.
Planners and tradesmen can determine delivery dates beforehand and estimate assembly times. This significantly reduces disturbance and vacancy rates.
Out of the box. Set. Go.
Products for construction projects must be robust, uncomplicated and easy to assemble.
This is as applicable in Norway as it is in Singapore. TECE’s well-thought-out products stand for efficient installations all over the world.
TECE products are really well-thought-out, e.g. the TECEpro l sanitary module for dry-wall construction.
It can be rapidly inserted into any supporting structure.
sealed in the factory.
On toilet modules, all the water works in the cistern are pre-installed and tested in the factory.
The cistern is delivered sealed to the building site and does not need to be opened during the construction phase.
This saves time and prevents defects caused by the build-up of dirt getting into the system.
TECE toilet modules are adapted to country-specific requirements. Take, for instance, the toilet module made for Norway. Norway’s popular tradition of timber-frame construction has its own very specific requirements. For example, in the event of frost damage, any leaking water is evacuated out of the dry-wall structure by the sealed bag developed for this purpose and fed into the bathroom’s out ow. This protects the timber-frame construction, and local requirements are reliably implemented in a time-efficient way.
Safely on schedule
Construction projects are not just all about working quickly. It is also essential to reliably keep to tight schedules. When many tasks and tradesmen are involved, this can be an exciting challenge.
Renovating existing buildings
Renovating inhabited buildings poses a particular challenge. To avoid disturbance and rent reduction as far as possible, a reliable and tight schedule is just as important as keeping construction noise and dirt to a minimum. This may well be di cult to avoid when gutting a building however. On the other hand, rebuilding a bathroom using pre-fabricated bathroom wall sections saves time and a great deal of work.
All that is left to do is embed the sound-proofing elements into the bathroom wall sections and then clad and tile them.
This structural restoration concept has been successfully adopted for example in a housing estate built in the 60s in Duisburg ( Germany ). After beginning construction in the conventional way, the builders soon opted for a prefabricated solution and have now been using this system for the past two years.
The result: a comfortable restoration for the tenants and less risk and expense for the owner.
On-site service in Latvia
120 TECEpro l toilet modules were installed in “The Pearl” apartment residence near Riga.
Technicians from the local TECE branch instructed the fitters directly on site. The fitters were therefore able to install the toilets quickly and flawlessly – and play their part in ensuring the on-schedule completion of the building.
Ready-made hotel bathrooms
For the Crown Plaza Changi Airport Hotel in Singapore, the bathrooms were completely pre-assembled and delivered, together with their facings and fittings, by a prefabricated bathroom installation company.
TECE Singapore’s technicians developed the technical details for integrating the TECEpro l toilet module in collaboration with the investor, planner and prefabrication company.
On schedule in Shanghai
The “Shanghai Star River” apartment complex is a large-scale international project. It was constructed on a plot of 714,000 square metres in the district of Min Hang.
400,000 metres of TECEfloor pipe systems were laid for the floor heating system alone. The equipment was delivered on schedule from the TECE branch warehouse on site in China – in coordination with the German central warehouse.
