A significant financial crisis that happened way back in 2007-2008 that started high demands for pre-fabricated or modular construction in the hospitality sector and other institutions again skyrocketed due to the coronavirus pandemic come 2020. But this time, it shifted the focus from hotel constructions to hospital sites and pre-made homes, and here are five reasons why.
- Labour Maximization
Pre-fabricated construction means two things: lower budget cost and minimal workforce. With the current economic backlash, this is the go-to option of many local governments and companies that encountered banking crises.
- Speed of Construction
Construction companies need not wait long after making the procurement of prefab walls or other materials. After the purchase, materials are ready for shipping—especially the large pieces.
- Fewer Weather Delays
Building construction’s biggest enemy is the weather. But with modular construction, there is less worry because of the controlled environment warehouses where the production happens.
- Safer Working Conditions
Speaking of controlled environment warehouses, construction workers don’t need to worry about high winds or uneven ground where they might get stuck because these work locations have enough space to complete their work.
- Better Quality Control
The thing about modular construction or prefabrication is that standard operating procedures are easy to monitor because of their similarity to checking assembly lines, unlike on-site building construction, where irregularities can happen because of some unnoticed details.
