Prefabrication saves time and money.
Prefabrication, sometimes referred to as off-site manufacturing, is the assembly of building units or components at a workshop or factory separate from the jobsite.
- Improves safety with fewer people needed onsite and by working in ergonomically comfortable positions instead of on ladders.
- Occurs concurrently with onsite construction and units are set during rough construction for faster completion and occupancy.
- Engineered process adds predictability to deliverables, leading to cost certainty and a reduction in contingencies.
- Exposes waste and conflicts before manufacturing begins.
- Allows workers to focus on critical tasks on the jobsite and eliminates the need to coordinate multiple subcontractors.
Prefabrication can come in many forms, including but not limited to mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) system assemblies, such as ceiling racks; restroom pods; and health care headwall assemblies.
