What are the benefits of prefabricated buildings?

The introduction of prefabricated buildings in the construction industry has revolutionised the nation’s approach to more modern methods throughout the sector. There will always be value in tradition and the traditional values which are deeply rooted in the sector, however as is evident with the daily applications prefabricated buildings have in today’s social infrastructure, there are incredible benefits to our methods of construction.

Springfield has been a market leader in the construction of prefabricated buildings for decades and the advantages of these types of buildings have always been clear to us. However, we thought we’d take an in-depth look at the value prefabricated buildings have and how those who may be on the fence about turning to offsite production can benefit.

Prefab buildings provide flexibility

Prefabricated buildings tend to be chosen for the fact a customer will receive a building which matches their exact specifications without having to settle for a compromise. Here at Springfield we pride ourselves in the customisation we provide our clients and this element of customisation is part and parcel of the service we provide in constructing prefab buildings. Whether it’s the size of the building itself or the number of levels which best suits your needs, the flexibility prefab buildings provide sets it apart from traditional methods. Springfield also encourages clients to customise the exterior finish and the interior layout of their prefab buildings to ensure the structure we produce is exactly what they’re looking for.

A more environmentally friendly construction site

By definition, a prefabricated building is one which consists of factory manufactured components which we would then transport to the construction site. The components would then be assembled on site. With its reliance on offsite methods of construction, choosing to erect a prefabricated building results in a much more environmentally friendly development. This largely down to the fact that offsite construction results in fewer on-site deliveries, as well as a reduction in the extra waste materials required with traditional methods. At Springfield, extra materials produced in our ISO approved UK warehouse can be recycled on site. Together this leads to a much more efficient and sustainable production process in addition to the reduction in noise pollution and construction traffic which traditional methods would result in.

Can your prefab building increase speed and reduce cost?

Yes, yes to both! As the components of the prefabricated building are manufactured in our warehouse, certain environmental factors are removed, which drastically increases the speed in which we can erect a prefabricated building. To begin with, our offsite methods allow use to build multiple pieces simultaneously, which in itself will increase the production process twofold. In addition to this, there are no on-site weather factors to take into consideration which means we can work at any time of the year, and once the components are constructed, we transport them to the site. The combination of these efficient production techniques which are especially adopted by Springfield, results in minimal on-site construction time and therefore a more realistic price for your build.
