5 benefits of prefabricated building design and construction

 benefits of prefabricated building design and construction

Prefabricated buildings may not have been top of the list when looking at building types to expand your business or school into. However, prefab structures are more cost-effective than traditional buildings and can be extremely versatile. Our prefab classrooms and offices can easily be adapted to meet a wide range of business needs. Here are five of the key benefits of choosing a prefabricated building.

1.Construction Speed

Traditional buildings can take months and even years to design and build, especially if you need specific features built in. The components of our prefabricated buildings are built in our St Helens based warehouse and then transported to your site and constructed on-site. This streamlines the construction process and leads to a much faster build time. Also, because we manage your entire project and are only on your site for a minimal amount of time, there are no subcontractor delays or weeks of non-movement due to rainy British weather!

2.Reduced Costs

When considering the expansion of your school or business, cost is always at the forefront of concerns. Our prefab classrooms and offices are typically much more cost-effective to design and construct than traditional buildings. This is due to the optimised construction process which is much faster and efficient. At Springfield, we know that whatever your budget, it is key that you have a building that meets your specific business needs. Therefore, we offer bespoke interior and exterior building features. Many bespoke purchases cost more for the privilege, however, with prefabricated buildings the cost savings during other areas of the process, means you can afford to have exactly what you want.  

3.Environmental Factors

Environmental efficiency is increasingly becoming a key consideration when choosing a method of construction. As most of our construction is completed in the controlled environment of a warehouse, we can manage our waste much more effectively and ensure our buildings are constructed as accurately as possible. The reduction in time spent on site means less disruption and fewer deliveries. Also, improvements in quality in the prefabricated building industry means that your building will continue to be energy efficient well into the future.

4.Design and Build Flexibility

As your business grows and adapts, your building needs to grow and adapt as well. All our buildings can have prefabricated modules added to them, so you can easily and quickly increase your space. We are also able to add further interior and exterior features. We are passionate about working with your business to create a functional space that meets needs of your growing company.  

5.Bespoke Design

Having a bespoke building will enhance the look and feel of your business and provide features which are key to the growth of your business. Browse some of the interior and exterior building finishes we have on offer, however, if there is something you want that you can't see, just ask! We can design and build bespoke features to match your business needs.
