Prefab — also called off-site construction  — offers faster completion rates with fewer labor hours, reduced energy use and waste of materials, and lower fees for the building design and specification on the same site. The modular trucking component of the process represents a negligible cost in comparison to the other savings. Because of the efficiencies and inherent predictability of prefab construction, we can provide a turn-key estimate for the full cost of the project, which dramatically reduces or eliminates the risk of scope changes and cost overruns.
