construction industry

As the name implies, prefabrication is the process of building structures where the structural components are manufactured outside of the construction site. Installed components are transported by truck to their final destination. Afterwards, the project is handed off to the new owners. Because the manufacturing is done offsite, there is a lot less waste in this method of construction than in traditional construction. This also reduces labour and material costs significantly.

Commercial and industrial prefabrication has become increasingly common in recent years. Since it has so many advantages, it is becoming increasingly relevant in a variety of construction fields. Let’s have a look at a few of the advantages.

  1. Use of technology in the production process

Prefabrication and modularization have been made possible by technological advancements in the construction sector. When it comes to manufacturing, for example, 3-D models of the structures are constructed and the full plan is written out before production begins. This aids in the creation of a cost-effective and environmentally friendly structure. Using this technique, it is possible to find locations where the costs and materials differ, hence lowering the overall project budget.

  1. It improves worker safety and security Security

Workers in the construction sector are at risk of being injured throughout the process of erecting a building. In addition, extreme weather conditions and the construction environment contribute to the problem. With prefabrication, this danger is avoided since the building components are manufactured in a factory’s controlled environment. Prefabrication provides an advantage in terms of worker safety and security, despite all the precautions being taken today.

  1. It saves cost

Every year, the cost of materials and other overhead expenses rises in the construction business, reducing profit margins. The cost of the project is increased by factors such as changing weather conditions and daylight hours, which delay the completion of the project. Changes in the weather have little effect on prefabrication, though. In addition, labour costs don’t rise as much because the work is done off-site. Therefore, prefabrication saves money.

  1. Prefabrication ensures precision and high standards

Offsite building is more accurate because of the utilisation of machinery and other production tools that require less human interaction. Prefabricated sub-assemblies are constructed in a climate-controlled environment within the production facility. The procedure adheres to a set of rules, and the final goods are subjected to a quality control process. Workers on the building site have varied levels of expertise.

  1. The ability to dismantle and reassemble

Prefabricated buildings have the benefit of being easily disassembled and reassembled. The workers accommodations can be dismantled and transported to a new location, where they can be reassembled. With the addition of additional columns, roof, and wall cladding, these structures can be enlarged at any time.

  1. It saves time

In comparison to typical construction methods, prefabricated structures can be built up to 60% faster. This is due to the fact that everything is pre-designed and manufactured off-site. Assembly and setup are the only remaining tasks to be completed on-site. Factors like changing weather conditions and a lack of labour do not impede prefab construction.

New-age construction methods like prefabrication are gaining in prominence. It boosts efficiency and saves money. With over 24 years of experience, EPACK Prefab has worked with some of India’s most well-known companies, both domestically and internationally.
