Welcome to Prefabricated Buildings Source
Prefabricated buildings are light, durable, functional and highly adaptable buildings that can be assembled quickly and easily for a range uses. www.prefabricatedbuildingssource.co.uk - specialises in sourcing all types of prefabricated building.
Many types of materials can be used to construct a prefabricated building including steel and timber with a variety of claddings available to finish off the exterior. Some designs of aluminium frame covered with coated PVC fabric are classified as prefabricated buildings.
Most types of prefabricated building are of sectional or modular construction. The sections or ‘modules’ are constructed in a factory off-site for delivery and assembly on-site. They have a multitude of storage and accommodation uses.
Given that the factory manufacturing results in precisely engineered and therefore accurately fitting parts, and taking into consideration the fact that many of the materials are often lightweight, final assembly is often very quick with little on-site disturbance. It is a far more economical type of construction than most conventional building methods. Some companies claim to be able to erect a 1,000 square metres prefabricated building in about two weeks. This is possible for the reasons just mentioned and also because, in some cases, foundations are not required. The building can literally be erected on paved surfaces and asphalt or bolted to a pre-installed ground plate.
With so many lightweight but strong modern materials now available prefabricated buildings have come a long way from the original ‘prefabs’ that were erected as temporary housing during and immediately after the Second World War.
Prefab Buildings, Building Accessories, Modular Buildings
Prefabricated buildings refer to those buildings whose components are manufactured off site and then later constructed in the desired location. Thus, you can actually see doors, panels, walls and other parts of a building being transported to the building site and assembled.
Off-site prefabrication is one of many innovations which have evolved in the construction industry for developers seeking cheaper construction of industrial buildings. Prefabrication of buildings has many advantages such as function of the building, quality, time, builder’s safety, quieter construction and less disruption of surrounding dwellings and more efficient labour.
Prefabricated buildings are essentially made up of several components which are constructed off-site in a factory. This can include any type of building from a shell or pod to a multi story building with prepared openings for all utilities, windows and doors.
In recent years, prefabrication has been successfully used for the construction of hospitals, hotels and schools. This helps to provide the assurance of building methods and materials that have been tried and tested in use. Whilst quicker build times are the ultimate goal, they are not achieved at the sacrifice of quality of design and workmanship.
A prefabricated building can signify three different types of constructions. These are:
1 Buildings that are built in components - Individual panels will be manufactured here and assembled together to form a building or structure.
2 Buildings built in modules, otherwise called modular buildings - These buildings are manufactured in the form of modules and these are then put together.
3 Buildings built in transportable sections - These are generally quite similar to modular buildings, the difference being that such buildings are built onto steel beams, transported to the building sites in their entirety and assembled there.
