Leveraging BIM in Prefab Construction
The benefits of prefab construction are undeniable. But do these benefits have the power to produce a genuine, widespread, and sustainable impact on the residential and commercial real estate markets?
To truly appreciate prefab construction and all its benefits, you have to understand how prefab structures come together. We take a closer look at the two different types of prefab systems, as well as the pros and cons of each.
Prefabrication can significantly reduce the timeline on construction schedules. This reduced timeline lowers labor costs, keeps on-site overhead costs in check, and allows stakeholders to move on to their next project more quickly.
