How offsite manufacturing can transform our industry

KPMG

Offsite construction offers an alternative to this current construction status-quo by promising transformative improvements across the asset lifecycle in time, cost, quality and health and safety. But most importantly, offsite construction offers predictability.

Prefabrication: 2017 FMI/BMI Forum Survey – The Changing Face of Engineering and Construction

The construction industry is back on track since the Great Recession, and total construction employment has re – bounded to almost 6.7 million workers (still a far cry from its peak of 8 million workers in 2006). “Construction spending in November 2016 hit a 10-year high, with one-month and year-over-year increases in all major segments,” says Ken Simonson, chief economist at Associated General Contractors of America. “Looking ahead, contractors say they expect more work in every category in 2017 than in 2016.” However, despite being about 16% below its 2006 employment peak, the industry is still struggling to find qualified labor. Compounding these statistics, baby boomers are reaching retirement age at a rate of 10,000 per day, while fewer, less experienced workers are moving into the engineering and construction industry. In short, labor has become a key constraint for contractors that want to take on and complete more work.

The Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center Design and Pre-Fabrication Analysis

Feb 6, 2017

The Christ Hospital Joint & Spine Center project consisted of 80+ patient bathroom and shower pre-fabricated units (pods) in the south expansion of The Christ Hospital Joint and Spine Center. It included the complete architectural and mechanical systems of the bathrooms. The main driving factor for the decision to use pods was the repetition of the units to achieve a number that would result in significant quality and schedule benefits.

Prefabrication – Achieving More with Less

Jun 3, 2016

PREFABRICATION IS HELPING CONSTRUCTION MANAGERS ACHIEVE MORE WITH LESS
The construction industry is under attack and the enemy is a shortage of natural, capital, and human resources. Companies must deliver projects faster, smarter, and more cost effectively while working with less. That is a tall order even for the most experienced of construction managers. However, it is not all doom and gloom.

PIVOTek Bathroom PODS and Cross-Laminated Timber (CLT) Help Lend Lease Make a Difference

Dec 15, 2015

Lend Lease, an international leader in property and infrastructure development and management, became the first public business in 2009 to begin operations under the U.S. Army’s Privatization of Army Lodging program. In the summer of 2013, Lend Lease began planning a new 62,000 square foot, four-story, 95-room Candlewood Suites for transient soldiers and their families at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. During the early stages of the planning, the group identified several ways that it could save time and money on the project. Inspiration came from Lend Lease’s Australian team who in 2012 built the world’s tallest high-rise apartment building made with Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) and modular bathroom PODS.

Prefabrication 101

Dec 15, 2015

Construction, as an industry, is under tremendous pressure to innovate. Limited natural, capital, and human resources create a necessity to seek new ways to deliver projects faster, more cost effectively, and smarter than traditional methods. New technologies and contracting systems exist today that are born of these pressures, and early adopters are embracing these to differentiate themselves in the market, as well as deliver true value to their customers. Yet gaps still exist to truly innovate the traditional construction process.
