You hear about preassembled buildings a lot in the construction world, especially the modular construction world. So what exactly is a preassembled building and what do we mean by our use of the term?
A preassembled building is a building whose components are first manufactured in a factory, and then assembled there and shipped as a whole building (usually on a flat bed truck) to a specific site.
Usually, preassembled buildings have standard sizes and shapes, so they are usually for quick installs, such as in plants or warehouses that have a certain amount of space that can house them.
A preassembled building has many advantages. By conducting the manufacturing process in the factory in controlled conditions, there is no need for messy, invasive construction at the actual build site, such as a client’s business. By delivering a preassembled building ready to be used, it saves the client time and money, as downtime is avoided and the business can continue its processes while the building is being manufactured.
Since the building is delivered completely assembled and ready to use, the client can start using it right it away, so it is highly convenient.
Preassembled buildings generally have a modular design: they are composed of modular components that can be added to or removed, or even relocated altogether, making the building highly flexible and adaptable. This is the sense we mean when we talk about preassembled buildings. These buildings can usually be picked right up and transported somewhere else if need be. They are an excellent investment that can be moved, as opposed to a traditionally constructed building that is tied to the ground and that has to be left behind or destroyed if the business moves.
Overall, preassembled buildings are extremely convenient and expedient for interest businesses.
