Prefab vs Traditional

  1. 1. Prefab vs Traditional
  2. 2. Purchasing  a  pre-­‐made   modular  kitchen  or  bathroom   unit,  has  become  a  standard   feature  in  the  construc=on  of     tradi=onal  houses  or   buildings. Buying  a  prefab  house  and   ge2ng  it  assembled  on  your   plot  of  land,  is  gaining   popularity  in  developing   countries.
  3. 3. Across  the  world,  the  =mely   construc=on  of  proper=es   benefit  both  the  constructor   and  homeowner.
  4. 4. From  the  owner's  point  of  view,  early  possession   of  a  home  or  apartment  allows  them  the   opportunity  to  earn  rental  income  sooner  and  save   on  the  interest  on  the  loan  borrowed  from  the   bank.
  5. 5. The  builder,  upon  comple=on   of  the  project,  can  reinvest  the   capital  into  new  projects  and   earn  further  income.
  6. 6. The  tradi=onal  'brick  and  mortar'  construc=on  is  giving   way  to  prefab  structures  and  materials.   Prefab  technologies  can  be  used  to  build  homes  quickly   and  cost-­‐effec=vely,  especially  as  tradi=onal  construc=on   costs  con=nue  to  rise.  
  7. 7. As  the  cost  of  borrowing   is  steep  in  developing   countries  and  land   developers  are  facing  a   liquidity  crunch,  =me  is   equal  to  money. Prefab  construc=on   method  is  quicker  and   adds  to  the  revenue   stream    of  the  developer.
  8. 8. In  prefab  technology,  the   project  can  be  designed   using  architecture  soHware. Parts  such  as  steel  frames,   wall,  ceiling  panels  are   custom-­‐made.   The  components  are  then  brought  to  the  construc=on   site,  the  structure  is  assembled  on-­‐site,  together  with   kitchen  and  bathroom,  doors  and  windows  units  being   fiIed  into  place.  
  9. 9. The  use  of  prefab  techniques  can   also  result  in  beIer  cost  efficiencies   over  the  life  span  of  the  buildings. Normally,  pre-­‐engineered  homes  show  beIer   performance,  as  assembly-­‐line-­‐produced  homes  are   manufactured  to  stricter  norms  with  cu2ng  edge   technology  and  reduce  the  number  of  manufacturing   defects. Using  prefab  method  in  buildings  also  gives  flexibility  in   terms  of  expansion  and  modifica=ons.
