What is the difference between prefabrication and modular construction?
These terms are often used interchangeably. Prefabricated units are developed for a particular project and approved through the traditional construction permitting processes. Modular construction is generally of a predetermined design and certified as a manufactured product.
PIVOTek offers construction manufacturing of prefabricated building components—an engineered process for creating prefabricated units that is lead by a multi-disciplinary team and ensures predictability in cost, timing, and quality.
