Description

Prefabrication promises incredible advances in efficiency and precision. Prefabrication of major components can produce shorter schedules, and lower construction costs, as work can be assembled offsite in more accommodating environments. But prefabrication also comes with certain hidden risks that can derail a schedule, increase costs, or cause discord amongst the labor force. This program discusses the potential perils that present the greatest risk, and offers practical suggestions to avoid these problems.
