Prefabricated Buildings

Prefabricated Buildings
By Jenny Bengen

Prefabricated buildings are pre-cut, pre-drilled, and pre-engineered before the actual building is constructed. In the past, prefabricated buildings were reserved for industrial structures, but today’s architects have begun building prefabricated homes in large-scale projects. Prefabricated structures are not a new idea, but recently they have surged in popularity due to their speedy construction and relatively low cost.

Ordering a Prefabricated Building

There is much to be said for the convenience of prefabricated structures. Nowadays, one may simply visit a Web site or look at a catalog, identify a prefabricated structure, and then order it. In particular, there is a growing market for prefabricated structures in poorer countries devastated by natural disasters. As a result of growing demand, the coming years will surely witness the growth of a number of companies that specialize in building prefabricated structures.

Benefits of Prefabricated Buildings

Prefabricated buildings provide innovative solutions to the rising costs of construction and the need to conserve resources. Materials like steel are becoming increasingly rare and expensive commodities; concrete, too, is rising in cost. But using prefabricated buildings eliminates the need to search for new building materials. Many prefabricated buildings are constructed using old shipping containers. Essentially, what once was considered junk is being used to construct viable new buildings.
