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. 

Benefits

  • 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.
