The Design

Specific, Accurate, Workable

offsite prefabrication 3D design

We have a highly skilled, professional and cohesive team of designers, modellers and coordinators who use sophisticated processes and software to develop all our prefabrication drawings in-house.

The prefabricated modules are created using dedicated software and then fully coordinated with our MEP models. Our MEP modellers are familiar with all leading BIM and related software applications.

In addition to the collision-free BIM models, we also offer LOD 450 fabrication models, fabrication drawings, spool drawings, coordinated MEP installation drawings, scan-to BIM as-built drawings and a quantity take-off service for material purchase.

We provide Mechanical 3D Modeling for:
• Heating and cooling systems
• Fire protection systems
• HVAC systems
• Fabrication drawings
• Spool drawings
• All types of MEP modules
• All types of MEP skids

The Material Supply

Unmatched scope of supply

The TROUVAY & CAUVIN Group’s long-standing relationships with the world’s leading manufacturers, combined with our procurement expertise, give you access to the highest quality piping materials, valves, fittings and offsite prefabrication solutions.

Maximum production capacity of 30 modules per day
With a production capacity of 150 modules per week
Fully HSE CERTIFIED and compliant work environment

Outstanding features that distinguish TROUVAY & CAUVIN from other suppliers and providers of offsite prefabrication solutions are:

  • 15,000 tons of material stock in the yards to meet critical requirements
  • A full range of value-added services performed in-house on the materials.
    Thanks to our own full-fledged machining floor equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and machinery, and our skilled and trained workforce, we are able to carry out most of the specialized works in-house, reducing the need to outsource. This allows for quick turnaround to meet promised deliveries. It also relieves our customers of the associated subcontracting and allows them to focus on other important aspects of the project.

An advanced workshop to meet all your offsite prefabrication needs.
The services offered by TROUVAY & CAUVIN include pipe finishing, manual and machine cutting, threading, beveling, grooving, shot blasting, painting, coating, welding, colour coding, bar coding, packing…

What is not done in-house is subcontracted to qualified local suppliers under TROUVAY & CAUVIN’s supervision to ensure that both fast delivery times and quality standards are met.

The Benefits

Specific Solutions with Multiple Benefits!

offsite prefabrication icon for increased productivity

Increased Construction Productivity

Faster construction with time savings of up to 60%. Onsite and Offsite work is carried out simultaneously, making more efficient use of skilled labour.

offsite prefabrication icon for quality control

Better Quality Control

Because most of the work is done in a factory-controlled environment, accuracy is higher and error is less likely. Improved quality controls at every step.

offsite prefabrication icon for time saving

Reduced Lead Time

Thanks to the readily available stock in our yards, the prefabrication process can begin as soon as the designs are approved, without losing time in ordering and receiving materials.

offsite prefabrication icon for safe work environment

Improved Workplace Safety

Construction sites are safer and more conducive as most work is done offsite, and less time is spent working at height

offsite prefabrication icon for environment friendly

Environment and Sustainability

Significant reduction in dust, and noise pollution. Onsite waste can be virtually eliminated and any waste produced can be controlled and recycled.

icon for cost savings

Cost Saving

Improved cost productivity. The use of standardised products can lead to economies of scale and reduce the need for onsite manpower, tools and equipment...

icon for BIM design

BIM Design

High level of customization and flexibility. Optimization of schedule and costs. Improve Onsite Collaboration and Communication.

icon for logistics

Controlled Logistics

Unaffected by weather conditions or other trades, Prefabricated modules provide overall reduction in schedules and greater certainty of delivery.

icon for damage prevention

Damage Prevention

Ground-up installation of MEP modules eliminates many connection problems. Since onsite work only consists of connecting MEP modules to mains, there is minimum damage to components.

icon for assest management

Reduced Asset Management

Reduced failure rates and more reliable asset performance helps to reduce opex cost over the life of the asset.
