Productivity Advantage of Modular Construction
As most people know, conventional on-site construction projects can be painfully slow; a fact that means extended periods of job site disruption and inevitable delays…not to mention the hours of frustration managing the moving parts if you’re the project champion.
A recent study by McKinsey & Company, “Reinventing Construction: A Route to Higher Productivity,” noted that, since 1945, productivity in manufacturing, retail and agriculture has increased by as much as 1,500 percent. By comparison, the productivity of construction has actually been in a consistent decline since the late 1960s.
Especially interesting is the fact that smaller trades, such as framing, drywall and painting, were called out as the worst-performing in the entire industry. These are the trades that pre-fabricated systems replaces with a high level of efficiency.
“Manufacturing building components offsite provides for more controlled conditions and allows for improved quality and precision.”– The National Institute of Standards and Technology and the National Research Council
Our High Productivity Means Buildings are Ready Fast
The pre-fabricated construction production line is really no different than the assembly line at any other manufacturing facility. As orders are processed, wall systems are built step-by-step to your specifications. Our lines are fully equipped with all of the materials your job will require which means our wall systems go from plans to structures in a fraction of the time it would take a conventional construction crew.
In contrast, the general contractor for on-site construction stages all of the supplies at your business. The moving parts – delivery, transportation, schedule coordination, measuring and building – create constant disruption to the flow and operation of your facility; not to mention, a mess that will last for the duration of the project.
Your Storage Solutions installation team unpacks the wall sections and assembles your building. A crew of two installers can assemble a small structure in a day or two. Contact us for your custom quote. . 865-540-4004
