Thanks again! I have a feeling that by "fluides", they mean both plumbing and electricity, since by some definitions, electricity is also considered a "fluid" and it would little good to have the plumbing pre-installed, but not the conduit and wiring, because you would have to tear up the walls and flooring to install them.
