Prefabrication vs. Conventional On-Site Methods
Prefabrication is exactly what it sounds like—the process of assembling and building the components of a construction project off-site and then transporting them to the site where they are integrated into the build. This changes the conventional approach where the materials for the components are first taken to the site and then assembled at a temporary shop set up at the location. Prefabrication can include sheet metal, steel frames, wall elements, HVAC equipment, plumbing, and more. This process has overtaken older methods because of the numerous advantages it offers in construction.
The Advantages of Prefabrication Services in Commercial Construction
More commercial, industrial, and residential construction projects are relying on off-site prefabrication because of its long list of benefits:
- Saves money: The conditions of a prefabrication shop reduce the amount of waste and labor necessary for construction and cut down on the general inefficiency of handling fabrication on-site. It’s also less expensive to transport pre-assembled components to the site than transporting raw materials. The overall improvements in efficiency and resource conservation can significantly reduce construction costs across the board.
- Speeds up construction: Prefabrication services can reduce the build time by up to 50%, taking weeks off the schedule. It’s faster and easier to assemble components off-site and lowering the amount of time spent on-site also lowers the time necessary to complete the build.
- Improves quality: When the components of a projects are assembled in a single, dedicated fabrication environment with controlled conditions, it allows for more consistent quality.
- Improves safety: Less time on-site means more work done under controlled environments and fewer chances for worker injuries. The higher quality products make the building itself safer for occupants.
