Description:

The use of prefabrication in the construction industry has been on the rise in the last decade for larger buildings and components like washrooms; in the residential sector it has been used in new subdivisions as a new standard.

The next logical step for this process would allow for more customization in the prefabrication process which would open this approach to one-off projects and potentially be more cost-effective for the custom homes and renovation sectors.

Prefab Construction Topics:
- What are the changes to the schedule? Labour efficiency, bad weather, etc.
- How do the costs change?
- Is material management better?
- What are the restriction of the designs?
- How does the site location and logistics matter?
- Does quality get better?
- Do you retain your employees more?
