Prefabrication saves time and money.
Prefabrication is the assembly of building units or components at a workshop or factory separate from the jobsite. During preconstruction, Messer’s experts will analyze the project scope and the supplier/subcontractor marketplace to determine prefabrication opportunities for your project.
Units & Components
Prefabrication can come in many forms, including but not limited to:
- Mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) system assemblies, such as ceiling racks
- Bathroom pods
- Health care headwall assemblies
- Interior and exterior wall panels
- Accelerated schedule: Manufacturing occurs concurrently with on-site construction, and units are set during rough construction. This reduces construction schedules, so the job is done and the building is occupied faster.
- Quality: Control measures are in place to ensure everything is done right the first time, from grout to wiring to fixtures.
- Cost: The highly engineered process adds predictability to deliverables, leading to cost certainty and a reduction in contingencies.
- Efficiency: Enables the team to expose waste and conflicts before manufacturing begins. The precise, controlled environment optimizes the use of materials, time, and energy.
- Workforce Management: The off-site manufacturing process frees workers to focus on critical tasks on the jobsite,and eliminates the need to coordinate multiple subcontractors.
