The global adoption of modular prefab frameworks is accelerating. More and more companies are choosing them as their top option. There is a plethora of factors that have contributed to this widespread acceptance of prefab construction. In addition to their practicality, efficiency, and comfort for the occupants, modular buildings also have the added benefits of being built rapidly and with minimal interference to the surrounding environment. As should be expected, however, given that this is cutting-edge equipment, many people have false impressions about it. In this article, we’ll clear up five common misunderstandings concerning prefab, modular construction.
1. Prefabrication innately results into worse quality, constructability, fit and finish
Each component of the final assembly is constructed by a seasoned team member in a controlled setting during prefabrication. There are several quality checks spread out across the course of the procedure. Our panels are constructed in a climate-controlled facility using cutting-edge specialised tools and equipment that ensures they are made in accordance with all applicable standards and specifications set out by the manufacturers. Prefabrication will hasten the critical route, meaning that other subcontractors can arrive on site and begin working sooner, ultimately leading to a quicker completion of the structure.
Prefabrication is only possible with early on-project coordination and cooperation. Making sure the structure is planned properly so that the joints in the panel arrangement match the joints in the outside finish is a major priority throughout the design phase.
2. Prefab Is Not Durable and Requires Expensive Maintenance
Precision engineering, strict design criteria, and cutting-edge building methods all go into making panels. Both the durability and the aesthetic quality of a prefab building are assured. Mammoth has a rigorous quality assurance and control procedure with full panel tracking to cut down on manufacturing errors. Each component we make here at the factory shares the same high standard of craftsmanship.
Some prefabricated panels even outperform traditionally assembled ones in terms of durability and usefulness. The portability of panels makes them a great option for any Owner seeking to raise standards and create a durable structure.
3. Prefab Is Only Used in Mass Production
It used to be the case that mass production was only feasible for very large buildings, but today, prefab designs are accessible to a wider audience regardless of the scale of the project, and they come in a dizzying array of fashionable, high-end, adaptable, and durable options. The purpose of debunking myths is to expose false beliefs, and prefabrication has developed through the years. No of the scope of a building owner’s project, pre-engineered and manufactured assemblies provide superior quality and cost savings. Prefabrication seeks to reduce costs and boost productivity by mass-producing repeatable standard assemblies.
4. Prefab is not quicker than stick framing
The timeliness of a building project is paramount. Prefabrication allows the critical path to be completed faster on-site. To avoid headaches down the road, it’s important to put in the work upfront to plan, design, and coordinate the project.
Building a stick-framed house necessitates staggered deliveries of building supplies. On-site progress may be slowed since materials aren’t always delivered in the correct dimensions and additional time must be spent cutting and measuring.
5. Prefab is expensive
On-site times are reduced thanks to prefabrication. The building envelope may be closed more quickly thanks to the speedy installation of outside wall panels, allowing the interior scope to begin without being held up by inclement weather. The building’s foundation is being erected at the same time as the panels are being made elsewhere, in a shop. Building time is reduced as a result. By reducing the amount of time a project needs to be completed, general contractors can save money by using fewer workers.e
