Prefabrication and Modularization: Increasing Productivity in the Construction Industry

Prefabrication and modular construction processes have been used for years, but today, with emergence of new technologies and construction practices, we have the ability to utilize these strategies to create innovative and quality buildings, while also improving construction productivity. These reported productivity benefits of prefabrication and modularization are particularly exciting in today’s economy given the benefits of creating superior buildings while saving cost, time and waste. In addition to sections on green building and BIM, the Prefabrication and Modularization report provides data and analysis on the impact of this trend on key industry productivity metrics, such as project schedules, costs, safety, quality, and eliminating waste.
