A growing economy needs a growing market and a growing market needs growing demand and a growing demand needs growing supply and storage infrastructure. This storage infrastructure need, which is increasing at a fanatic pace, is making innovation in construction techniques an inevitable thing. Today, innovation in the construction method which speeds up the building construction process with profound quality and minimal wastage are desired.
The conventional techniques of warehouses construction are being replaced by modern prefabricated warehouse construction methodology. This prefab technique is faster and thus can be used in mass production of the modular warehouse. These prefab warehouse construction help to enhance the efficiency of construction process, thus allow a higher productivity, quality, time and cost saving.
In contrast to conventional on-site construction, in a prefab construction, a warehouse is constructed using modules and sections. The most common techniques of prefab warehouse construction are steel framing system and panel system. These modules and sections are factory built. These sections are then transported to the site and assembled there using hydras and cranes in no time. These sections and modules are made up of high quality aluminum and steel, thus have large strength and durability. The important benefit of using these sections or modules is that they are built in highly advanced factories using latest technologies. Less input of manual labor reduces the chances of variation in quality. Thus efficiency of our construction work is not at all hampered.
These prefabricated warehouses can be disintegrated after use and this is a huge advantage of them over conventional on-site built brick and mortar warehouses. Thus after their utility life, prefabricated warehouses ensure that minimum wastage is generated as they are fully dismantled and recycled. They can be remodeled again in different sections and can be used somewhere else. In case of a brick and mortar based warehouses after dismantling, the waste is dumped somewhere, leading to pollution.
The overall cost of construction of a prefabricated warehouse comes out to be lower in comparison to traditional construction method as the number of labors required is quite less in prefab technique. Further, inclement weather conditions can affect a conventional on site construction and cause enormous delays but they have a minimal impact on prefab construction as most of the parts are made in closed factory under controlled environment.
There are a lot of vendors in the market who are indulged in prefabricated warehouse construction. Selection of appropriate vendor should be done carefully. As this is a highly specialized work which needs meticulous attention to quality of both material and assembly, it can’t be handed over to some amateur prefab constructor. The constructor should have completed a good number of these types of constructions for different clients and different requirement.
