Planning, Design and Construction

Airvac believes in the team approach - where we assist engineers, contractors, and owners in all phases of a project.


When planning and evaluating a potential sewer project, Airvac is here to assist. With specific information provided by the customer, Airvac will create a project layout and provide an estimate 
for the project.

System Layout/Preliminary Design/Technical Information

A preliminary system layout that includes the sizing of the vacuum main, vacuum pumps, sewage pumps and the collection tank will be presented in a proposal package. The estimated quantities of the various system components will also be identified. Technical information will be included that summarizes the design assumptions, line and station sizing, and the valve pit quantities required for the project. 

Budget Estimate

Upon receipt of some basic project information, Airvac engineers will assist consulting engineers with a budget estimate.  The budget estimate will include an estimate of both capital costs as well as the annual operation and maintenance costs.

The client will receive a link, login, and password to access the digital landing page, which will include the information listed above. In addition, embedded videos, case studies of other vacuum projects, reference maps, and links to various other topics will also be provided.


Airvac is available to help throughout the design phase of a project and will be involved as much or as little as a customer requires. From the design of the vacuum station equipment to the profiling of the vacuum mains, we are here to assist you. Airvac can also provide specifications and standard details for vacuum system installation and components.

Detailed Design Assistance

When a consulting engineer commences with the detailed system design, assistance will be provided by an Airvac Engineer for vacuum 101 training and hands-on design work. Furthermore, Airvac can support the engineer with design reviews at key milestones (25%, 50%, 75%, 90%, 100%)

Line Profiling Assistance

Airvac can provide assistance with vacuum main profiling. Typically, this includes assistance with profiling the most critical vacuum main. When completed, Airvac will review the line profiles and do a complete hydraulic analysis of both static and friction loss.

Plan and Profile Drawings

Each design firm has their own set of requirements for how much detail needs to be included in their plan and profile drawings.  Information that is typically included in other utility designs should also be included in a vacuum sewer design. Certain vacuum-specific items need to be included as well and Airvac can provide that information.


Airvac can provide a field service representative during the construction phase of a project. This includes a vacuum installation 101 presentation, providing the contractor with a better understanding of how a vacuum sewer system works and how components are delivered, stored, and installed. The representative will provide tips and instructions for the key items including valve pit installation, vacuum main installation, and vacuum main testing. The field service representative will also help to ensure that the project is installed properly, which will lead to a successfully operating system.

Construction Field Services

In our over 50-year history, one simple fact stands out: No matter how good the design, a vacuum system that is not constructed or serviced properly will not operate at peak performance. A correct installation is vital to the ultimate success of a vacuum system. Airvac can provide skilled field representatives to advise and assist contractors and consulting engineers with the construction of the vacuum sewer system. In most first-time vacuum projects, Airvac recommends that a field representative be present during the entire construction phase. For repeat clients, or for projects where a consulting firm has vacuum experience, Airvac can provide field services as needed.
