Getting Pre-Fab Products From Off-Site To On-Site Safely

Getting Pre-Fab Products from Off-Site to On-Site Safely

Assembling certain components of a construction project at a location other than the job site can help solve several problems contractors face today and, as a result, offsite manufacturing of wall systems is increasingly becoming the solution of choice for new construction and renovation. Off-site construction of insulated wall systems such as Sto Panel Technology, can enable different phases of a project to run on a parallel track, shaving valuable time from the schedule and saving as much as 50% in labor costs.

Building offsite can also be a safer alternative to site-built construction and can also protect workers and products from inclement weather, which can interfere with building schedules .
