Prefab & BIM Technology Lead to Fast-Track Efficiency
Prefabricated construction is definitely having a moment — and it stands to reason.
Also known as off-site or modular construction, this building method is the practice of bringing together components of a structure in a factory and then transporting the complete assemblies to the construction site where the structure is located.

2. Shorter Construction Time
3. Consistent Quality
Leveraging BIM in Prefab Construction
CLT construction expands upon many of the benefits of off-site construction in general, such as reduced waste, higher levels of quality control, and accelerated building timelines. This approach also offers several unique benefits.
Structures that utilize both panelized and modular construction are known as hybrid systems, and they provide owners and designers with the ultimate range of flexibility. Let’s discuss hybrid systems and how they’re changing off-site construction.
Cost savings are a major benefit of volumetric modular construction projects. This approach involves manufacturing 3D modules off-site and then arranging and connecting them at the job site to create the finished structure.
