Free e-Book: The Path to Prefab

If the macro trends toward prefabrication over the last 5 years hadn’t already caught your eye, its dramatic acceleration within the last 9 months probably has. 

In February 2020, a Dodge Data & Analytics SmartMarket Report anticipated that 62% of US contractors would use at least some single-trade prefabrication methods during the year. The report further predicted that metric would increase to 75% in 2023. Those contractors who have adopted prefab methods are already realizing a key benefit of offsite construction is a safer, more controllable factory work environment. Perhaps even more importantly for the long term, prefab helps them to establish a discipline toward repeatable process and continual process improvement — changes that can transform construction firms’ core identities.

 

 

In an effort to better understand the market dynamics at play when transitioning to prefabrication methods, Trimble’s research team sought out top industry leaders to share their experiences. If you are currently exploring the practicalities and potential pitfalls associated with such a move, you will appreciate the insights from three innovative companies with three widely different approaches to improving quality, safety and predictability.
