Prefabrication is the assembly of building units or components at a workshop or factory separate from the jobsite. During preconstruction, Briggs Electric will analyze the project scope to determine if prefabrication opportunities exist for your project. Prefabrication has many benefits, all of which lower cost for the customer. Here are some of the benefits of prefabrication….
Cost Savings: Waste is minimized at the jobsite reducing costs for General Conditions
Schedule Savings: Prefabricated components can be built in the process – e.g. above-ceiling mechanical racks can be built before floors are complete
Enhanced Safety: Reduced amount of material deliveries minimizes traffic and improves safety for occupants as well as construction workers
Enhanced Quality: All items are constructed in a controlled environment. Materials are typically tested in the warehouse (off site) and then re-tested once they are installed, ensuring every piece and part fits perfectly
Sustainability: Waste is significantly reduced at both the shop and project locations because materials are ordered in specific lengths
