Planet Plumbing’s prefabrication processes are extremely advanced putting us well ahead of our competitors. Here are some of the benefits both ourselves and our clients are experiencing;
Since prefabrication assemblies are created in a factory-controlled environment, most safety issues are mitigated. An indoor construction environment presents considerably fewer risks for accidents and other liabilities. There are strict factory processes and procedures that protect our teams from injuries. At a construction site, although safety is of utmost importance, workers are subjected to weather-related conditions, changing ground conditions, working at heights, and many other things.
Prefabrication is often commended for its efficiency and sustainability. Traditional construction methods require extra materials that lead to increased waste. However, since prefabricated assemblies are constructed in a factory, extra materials can be recycled in-house. This is a considerable improvement over sending waste directly to a landfill from a traditional construction site. Also, the controlled environment of a factory allows for more accurate construction, and many other benefits.
Since prefabrication occurs in a controlled manufacturing environment and follows specified standards, the items are built to a uniform quality. These all contribute to the craftsmanship and overall quality of prefabricated item. With prefabrication, each sub-assembly is built by an experienced crew in a weather-resistant factory, with multiple quality checks throughout the entire process. Some components are constructed using precise machine equipment to ensure stringent design & quality targets are met.
Reduced Site Disruption
Since many components are completed in our factory, there is significantly less labour, equipment and materials around the construction site. This streamlined approach to construction provides a far more efficient atmosphere for productivity and eliminates unnecessary distractions and interference that are typical of construction sites, and reduces safety incidents.
Shorter Construction Time
Off-site construction takes significantly less time to build than on-site construction. In many instances, prefabrication takes less time when compared to traditional construction. This is due to better upfront planning, elimination of on-site weather factors, material scheduling delays and quicker fabrication as multiple pieces can be constructed simultaneously. Shorter construction times allows our clients to beat their critical path & reducing their overheads, allowing businesses to grow rather than putting all their focus and resources on one or a few projects at a time.
