Prefabrication is the term given to parts of a building or development which are constructed offsite and transported to the site. Modular construction refers to the method of construction which involves building by sections.
With an increasing amount of developers and contractors using the prefabrication and modular construction techniques, they have learned that the benefits of using this techniques are the lower construction cost, the speed of construction and the precision of work. However, main challenges for any form of prefabrication and modular construction center around the transportation of materials, including precast concrete and steel panels, prefabricated trusses and pods, and the incorporation of those elements onsite.
