Efficiency and predictability
By building offsite, the process is the same every time. This streamlined practice encourages both increased performance and decreased time to manufacture components. Offsite construction avoids site condition delays, ensures quality, and guarantees on-schedule delivery.
The factory offers a more predictable setting than the physical construction site, eliminating the variables of weather and visibility. A stable, consistent environment produces fewer errors. And, many of onsite construction’s most dangerous hazards – such as falls from height or equipment accidents – are mitigated in the factory.
Offsite construction requires less heavy machinery and less energy. Transporting the finished building to the site also uses minimal vehicles, reducing waste. Accurate calculation of material requirements enables builders to save by purchasing in bulk.
A smaller workforce is required to construct a building in a factory setting. Fewer workers and wage costs keep building prices more affordable.
