Prefab makes way for a Cleaner, Affordable and Greener construction
The concept of prefab buildings is not anything new. Throughout history, architects and contractors have built buildings in one place and assembled them in another location. But in recent times, the demand for prefab buildings have gone up.
Prefab buildings offer several benefits compared to conventional on-site constructions. Many clients approach us with their prefab design needs for both commercial and residential purposes.
What makes them opt for prefab buildings? Let's find out the answer so that you can decide if you need to build prefab!
Prefab buildings are made in the factory and transported to the site. The contractors then use cranes and other equipment to lift and assemble the prefabricated units. Each prefabricated unit is designed to withstand the loads of transport and craning operations.
Once put together, they become a single structure with complete floor, wall and roof assembly. That's why prefab buildings are stronger and durable than site-built constructions.
Offsite construction also enables manufacturers to adopt better quality management programs. They have strict quality assurance and quality check programs to ensure superior quality of construction. Testing protocols and independent inspections make way for improved quality at each stage of construction.
Prefab buildings offer improved completion time. The components of the building like walls and floors can be constructed side-by-side. This also reduces the overall construction time compared to on-site constructions where each aspect needs to be completed before the next stage begins.
You can also carry out work simultaneously in the site and factory for faster execution of your project. Around 80% of the construction takes place away from the site in a factory. This enables you to reduce site disruptions, vehicular traffic and mess. As a result, overall safety and security also increase.
Weather elements do not delay prefab construction as they are manufactured indoors. The building materials are stored in a protective environment which prevents damages and thefts. You can also reuse and recycle the materials for tremendous cost-effectiveness. The controlled environment of production also leads to minimum waste.
The benefits make prefab buildings an ideal choice for active businesses. You can reduce on-site operations and cut back the number of ongoing construction hazards. Prefab designs provide considerable advantages when it comes to new projects with major offsite construction.
Prefab buildings can incorporate the same levels of design and construction sophistication like on-site projects. You can exceed all expectations and give a tough competition to site-built buildings. Our designers can also take a site-built design and create a prefab version in any stage of the construction process. So it's never too late to bring on the possibilities!
Many building owners search for sustainable designs for optimum environmental impact. We also design prefab buildings using sustainable and green materials to reduce the footprint. Prefab buildings promote efficiency, quality, cost control and quicker time to construct!
