A Productivity Assessment of Pre-Fabrication in Construction

Sustainability icon, disabled. A green leaf.

The level of productivity within construction projects can largely influence the labor, resource, and time investment leading up to completion. For this research project, the pre-fabrication and stick-built construction techniques will be compared in terms of such factors to elucidate productivity differences between the two methods. Using relevant data collected from local construction sites, the findings of this project will provide insight into potential construction layouts and workflows with significantly improved efficiency and sustainability. The implications of these findings will promote further research in pre-fabrication and its uses in public and private infrastructures.
