Prefabricated Building Materials Save Time, Money and the Environment

The decision to use prefabricated materials when constructing a commercial building is an excellent way to make a conscious effort to sustainably source materials through sustainable construction practices and save time and money. Prefabrication provides precise measurements, preventing material waste. Furthermore, unused raw materials can be recycled into other prefabricated materials. In return, prefabrication becomes a cost-effective option for owners through the elimination of waste. Prefabricated materials include structural steel decking, structural wall panels, panelized walls, panelized floors and panelized roofs.

Prefabricated materials are constructed in a factory, which inherently allows for a more consistent product and improved quality control. This is because they are built in an enclosed space protected from exterior elements. Additionally, prefabricated materials are assembled on a production line, often with specialized individuals performing the same functions during construction. As a result, the assembly line process is highly efficient, reducing production time and improving overall quality control with skilled laborers focusing on specific tasks.

When the prefabricated material is ready to go to the final construction site for installation, there are even more benefits. For starters, installation of prefabricated materials is more efficient, often cutting the construction time by 30% to 40% on the jobsite. The shortened construction schedule saves time and money on labor. Prefabrication also typically requires a smaller workforce for installation, saving the owner even more on labor costs. Prefabricated materials also lessen the environmental impact during construction by reducing air, water and noise pollution caused by a construction project.

So the next time you are considering a job, ask yourself, could this be an opportunity to use prefabrication to save time, money and the environment?
