Global population growth and increasing urbanization mean high-rise buildings are the way of the future. However, tougher fire safety and environmental standards and a trend toward more modular design are making high-rise projects more complex than ever. To help you meet these challenges and minimize the risk of costly project delays or liability in the event of a fire, Hilti offers solutions that cover the project lifecycle from preliminary specifications to documentation. Partner with us today to build success from the ground up.
Smart planning to increase productivity and quality
For large projects like high-rise, BIM can help increase ROI by cutting material costs and speeding up construction. You could also enjoy greater transparency over spending and a higher quality project outcome. During planning, BIM allows for optimized design of elements including MEP supports and firestop systems, thus helping to reduce the risk of clashes and on-site improvisation. During construction, BIM paves the way for pre-fabrication, helping to cut product waste. For the operations phase, firestop documentation helps enable more successful facility management. Contact Hilti BIM engineers to learn more about our BIM services or access the Hilti BIM/CAD library.
Passive fire protection is critical in high-rise projects. As it is practically impossible to quickly evacuate large numbers of people from tall buildings, it’s vital to contain fire, smoke and toxic gases. Hilti fire protection solutions for high-rise have been extensively tested and approved, following the most stringent international codes and approvals such as ETA, UL, and many others. They cover key applications ranging from MEP penetrations to firestopping façade joints. Approvals cover smoke tightness, acoustic performance for occupants’ well-being and movement capabilities due to wind and seismic events. Easy to install, retrofit and inspect, many of our devices also contribute in obtaining green certifications from leading organizations including LEED and BREEAM.
Finding reliable, code-compliant and cost-efficient solutions for post-installed rebar is not easy. However, our solutions can help you balance the need for higher overall project quality and faster installation. Enjoy flexible design and faster, safer installation thanks to our innovative SafeSet method which transforms drilling and highly efficient hole cleaning into an easy one-step process. Finish the process by placing the rebar with one of our injectable hybrid or epoxy mortars.
Hilti offers modular support systems for light, medium and heavy-duty purposes ranging from pipe and cable trays supports to overhead medical. We also provide customized components designed to resist horizontal seismic forces. Our flexible supports are designed for quick assembly with minimal training to help cut labor costs and reduce installation errors. Use the online MEP supports selector for painless selection of standardized support configurations or calculate and specify systems for your project with PROFIS installation software. Speed up installation with Hilti pre-fabrication services including cutting, kitting and pre-assembly: supports arrive on site ready to install.
