The Stages of Prefabricated Construction


The prefabricated construction method has been gaining momentum in recent years with more and more people realizing that prefabricated construction is a high quality, faster and significantly cheaper solution than the traditional method.


Erecting a construction using the prefabricated construction method has several main stages. The first two stages actually resemble the traditional method of construction.


The first stage is obtaining building permits and licenses in accordance with the law.  Although these are usually portable buildings, the law still requires building permits arranged. Therefore, after deciding to carry out a project featuring prefabricated construction, the architect’s construction plan has to be submitted to the relevant local authority for approval.


After obtaining all necessary permits, the second stage of prefabricated construction can begin, which is the foundations and infrastructure phase. This stage too is reminiscent of traditional construction, as there is no other way to connect to urban infrastructures such as water, sewage, electricity and various communication lines.


Start Building Using Prefabricated Construction


The differences of the prefabricated construction method begin to manifest themselves from the third stage on. Parallel to preparing the foundations and infrastructure, one can start manufacturing the skeleton frame of the building in the factory.


Prefabricated construction is based on a computerized program. The structure plan is fed into a special computer program, which processes the data and knows how to produce steel rods in the exact measurements required for the structure. These rods make up the skeleton frame of the structure and are connected by special, strong galvanized anchors.


The next step in prefabricated construction is assembling the plasterboards onto the skeleton frame and transporting the building to the construction site. When it reaches its permanent location, it is attached to the pre-prepared foundations. This is the most significant part of the process. Following that, the roof chosen by the clients is assembled. All types of roofs can be used in prefabricated construction.


The next step is connecting to the already prepared infrastructures. There are, in the factory-prepared structure, pre-prepared apertures for threading in electrical wires, water pipes, communication lines, etc.


In order to finish the prefabricated construction process, two other important actions must be taken – cladding and insulation. You can choose different types of cladding for the interior and exterior walls of the building, the most common of which are thick Ytong blocks (between 50 and 70 mm). To complete the process, the insulation materials are inserted between the building frame and the cladding panels. Different types of insulation materials, such as rock wool, tin foil or acoustic insulation sheeting can be used, according to customer needs and budget constraints.


Prefabricated construction is a field of specialty in the construction industry. It has many advantages over the classic construction method, and in order to use it most proficiently, it is highly important to address professionals with rich experience in the field.
