Lower installation costs are just the beginning of the cost savings and efficiencies that Tate's Underfloor Service Distribution System has to offer your facility.  Our underfloor service distribution design  creates maximum value and flexibility.

You’ll realize immediate benefits in a reduction of materials, time and expense with this system. Projects using Tate’s advanced service distribution solution have reduced installation costs by up to 10% and achieve 15% faster build and completion times. There are many areas where first costs can be neutralized, for example:

Design flexibility - Adapts easily to existing or new architectural features.

Laminated Finishes – Applying finishes such as wood, stone and linoleum in the factory saves labor and materials cost.

Voice/Data cabling - Reduce cable run lengths, eliminate cable trays, and lower labor costs at installation.

Power wiring - ‘Plug & play’ technology significantly reduces installation costs.

Furniture - Eliminate dependency on costly powered furniture and improve space planning options.

Air distribution - Significantly reduce trunk, branch, and discharge ductwork.

Ceiling - Reduce or eliminate suspended ceiling requirements.

Time to occupancy - Underfloor services install quickly, allowing for earlier occupation.

Structure – Improved integration of underfloor services provide slab-to-slab height reduction opportunities.


Operational Cost Savings

Tate’s Underfloor Service Distribution System offers operational cost saving features with the ability to make future changes without extensive demolition or disruption. The underfloor design addresses the service distribution needs of densely populated floor plans and advanced technology requirements with easy access to power, communication, data, and HVAC systems simple. And the system’s inherent flexibility keeps reconfiguration costs low.

Utilizing an underfloor air delivery system provides energy efficient environmental control and improved air quality. With a built-in energy-efficient design and long - term flexibility, Tate provides sustainable cost savings well beyond a successful move-in, here’s how:

Energy – Lower fan power, extended use of economizer, and reduced outside air due to better ventilation effectiveness.

Space churn – Reduce costs by at least 50%. With flexible and accessible wire/cable infrastructure and floor mounted plug & play components, changes are easily accommodated using in-house personnel.

HVAC – Floor diffusers are not ducted to the air supply allowing for better comfort control, more flexible zoning strategies, and improved productivity.
