Consider Off-Site Construction as a Viable Building Option

Consider Off-Site Construction as a Viable Building Option

by Proforma Construction, November 29, 2018

Here’s why you should consider off-site construction for your next building project.

If you are looking for a new building alternative for your next commercial construction in the Bay Area, then you should consider off-site construction.  Off-site construction refers to any building process that occurs away from the actual installation site.  Generally, off-site construction involves designing, fabricating, transporting, and assembling building elements at the final structure site.  Here are some of the reasons why you should consider off-site construction for your next commercial construction project.

1) Shorter Construction Timelines

In off-site construction, the building and site work occur simultaneously which allows the project to proceed much more quickly.  Additionally, because building takes place in factory settings, progress is not delayed by uncontrollable factors such as bad weather.  So, timelines are both shorter and more predictable.

2) Reduced Costs

Off-site construction also saves a considerable amount of money on both labor and materials costs.  For starters, off-site builds can be completed with a smaller workforce, which will cut down on labor costs.  Additionally, because factories are able to purchase building materials in bulk, off-site construction can also help you save on production costs.

3) Greater Environmental Protections

Because building takes place in a factory setting, there is less production waste and fewer environmental disruptions at the actual site.  As a whole, off-site building practices are greener than traditional construction methods that use fewer recycled materials and more heavy equipment that generates air and noise pollution.

These are some of the reason why you should pursue off-site building for your next commercial construction in the Bay Area.  Looking for assistance with your next building project?  Then turn to the experts at Proforma Construction.  Serving Pleasanton and the surrounding California area, our highly-trained team is ready to make your commercial construction dreams a reality.  Contact us to get started today.
