Customised Prefabrication

“Time is money” – a worldly wisdom that has proven true every day especially in the construction industry. The sanitary, heating and air-conditioning installations in every construction project are again and again a time and logistics challenge, and not only for the architects and planners. The implementation onsite subsequently often poses considerable problems for the executing site manager. Neither the external conditions nor the time specifications permit dealing in detail with the construction of a demanding manifold. Added to that are the high labour costs for the time spent and diverse problems right onsite that can usually only be solved by dedicating a lot of time to them.

Moreover, the lack of skilled professionals has become significantly worse in recent years. Prefabrication has an especially positive effect. The lack of skilled professionals is compensated. Work processes can be continued. Due to the diversity of today’s application capabilities in the plant engineering sector, there is hardly any chance of being able to cover the distribution of fluid media using standardised or modular manifold design. Every construction project has its own individual requirements. It is not only the type of medium but also application areas, regulations and laws along with the architectural circumstances that influence the material and design of the pipeline system and its manifolds. Whether new construction or reconstruction, heating, cooling, open or closed systems, aggressive media or drinking water and foodstuffs: We provide customised solutions. Nowadays, special components are playing an ever-greater role due to more demanding and unusual construction projects. We have already furnished ring-shaped installations in buildings with cylindrical construction designs or storage tanks along as well as pyramids with extreme angles with our special fittings. Umulig Engineering nearly always finds a solution.

Umulig Engineering has partnered with Aquatherm to bring more than 40 years of experience in the plant engineering sector. From luxury liners to football stadiums, from hotel complexes and hospitals to breweries and server centres, Aquatherm pipeline systems are proving their reliability on a worldwide scale.

To accomplish that you merely need to supply us with your planning data, 3D drawings and/or sketches with the dimensions. You will receive an offer from us that includes the material data and drawing. A competent team of experienced engineers and technicians is ready to advise and assist you with your project.


Inquiry & review

At the beginning we need as much information as possible. A CAD drawing would be ideal but even just a dimensioned hand-drawn sketch would suffice. The Umu-therm manifold questionnaire forms help in quickly acquiring the main information in detail. The Umulig Engineering design team checks the submitted information for plausibility and completeness. The principle here is: the more information, the better. We are also glad to provide our customers with our stocklist in conventional CAD formats for their planning software.

Planning & coordination

The Umulig Engineering design team will plan the manifold after the review has been completed. This is where the decades of technical knowledge and expertise of the system manufacturer is incorporated. The customer subsequently receives a detailed CAD drawing for review and manufacturing release. The drawing includes a CAD parts list with item numbers for every fitting part. On top of that, if desired you will receive our CAD data for application in your existing planning data.


After release we manufacture the desired products in the department for prefabrication, which is equipped with the latest, in part self-developed processing machines. Assembly is performed here in a clean environment. Dirty, dusty and cold installation conditions as are generally found at construction sites then no longer have any influence on the final result.  The costs for the assembly tools at the construction site, which can be quite high for large manifolds, are omitted. No manifold or special component leaves Umulig Engineering without having passed a leakproof and functional test.


After the individual assemblies passed the tests and checks, Umulig Engineering delivers the finished manifolds or special components right to the construction site or plant.
