The construction industry in India is seeing a rapid rise in demand, especially with government initiatives such as ‘Make In India’ and ‘Digital India’. Demand for infrastructure and real estate projects in India has increased in the past few years. By 2025, the construction industry would account for about 13% of our country’s GDP. This demand has been spurred on by technologies such as AI, AR, VR, and BIM. The integration of AI into BIM technology has already laid the foundation for the digitization of the construction industry.
As the construction industry continues to grow at a rapid pace, it’s imperative that we find ways to improve productivity and quality. One of the latest developments in prefabrication is helping meet this demand while reducing risks to safety and providing higher yields through real-time collaboration between contractors and salesmen.Right now, prefabricating is not only trendy — it’s thriving as an industry. But why? What is the role that modular construction plays in this new age of prefabrication? And how will prefabrication shape the construction industry decades into the future?
Building components off-site is not a recent development; it dates back a century. Due to the mass production of poor quality prefabricated homes and modular constructions that were associated with prefabrication, it didn’t make big back then. With technologies like BIM, Prefabrication has been transformed. The method can now be effectively used on a global scale. The benefits of using prefabrication include reduced construction time, shorter lead time, and increased production efficiency. A product can be custom-made and installed quickly. Wind tunnels that were previously too environmentally damaging have been eliminated through this method. This has helped reduce the impact on the environment and economy by avoiding excessive concrete waste material left over after construction ends.
The modular construction market is expected to grow by 6% by 2023. There is a strong likelihood that it will remain popular in this field. This blog will explore some of the benefits that prefabrication offers to businesses and customers:
Shorter Construction Duration: Prefabrication is revolutionizing the construction industry by increasing efficiency and time to market. According to Brandt, an industry expert, modular buildings are 50% faster to construct than on-site construction; therefore, your money will be much better spent for a faster return on investment.
Quality Check – Prefabrication construction is conducted in a controlled environment following specified standards, ensuring quality. Quality checks are carried out at these manufacturing sites on a regular basis to ensure the consistent quality of their delivery. In order to meet building code requirements, some components are machine-made with precision.
Cost Reduction: Although many people believe custom-made components are extremely costly, it’s actually the opposite. Prefabrication is a cost-effective way to reduce the overall project budget. This is particularly true for small building structures that do not require much in terms of customizing. The manufacturers offer pre-manufactured components — or turnkey solutions — suited to any size project, from a two-story commercial building to a single-family home or apartment complex. It gives you increased productivity, reduced errors and finished products that are better suited to your needs.
Sustainable Construction: Off-site construction has the advantage of reducing pollution and disrupting the local ecosystem. Additionally, none of the raw materials are wasted in a factory setting as the scraps and raw materials can be recycled. In addition to being eco-friendly, this approach also increases energy efficiency. As a result of less on-site traffic and streamlined transportation, fossil fuel consumption will go down, pollution will be controlled, waste management will be improved, and the level of productivity will increase with minimal disruption.
The construction industry continues to face challenges related to safety. A number of occupational health hazards exist in the construction industry. The manufacturing of building components off-site offers workers protection from weather-related health risks, and the risks of accidental injury are considerably reduced in an indoor environment.
Flexibility: These assemblies and subassemblies are easy to disassemble for relocation. A unique advantage of prefabrication is the flexibility it allows with design structure changes to fit different buildings and spaces. It is the versatility of modular construction that has increased its popularity in recent years.
High Productivity- With prefabrication, we can maximise the use of labour available on-site, thereby increasing productivity. As a result, customers benefit from a much more efficient, faster, and high-quality construction process. With the global expansion of manufacturing, we’ve begun to realise there’s more we can do here. It won’t be long before we see ready-to-install modular rooms delivered to our doorsteps, complete with furnishings.
At Pinax, we provide solutions that offer great value in the long run. We deal in a large selection of customizable and relocatable modular buildings that are instantly operable. Carefully crafted and quality-controlled before delivery, our modular structures are faster, more cost-effective, and a great environmentally friendly option compared to traditional buildings.
