BENEFITS OF FABRICATION

The benefits of fabricating piping and HVAC ducting systems in a climate controlled fabrication facility are not speculative, they’re proven. Contractors that fabricate solely at the jobsite are not able provide the necessary quality control measures, accurate cost estimating, and scheduling controls that are required in today’s fast-paced construction industry. We advocate for the maximum us of fabrication and have pioneered the development of new processes and technologies to lead the way.

The integration of design, fabrication and installation results in the following benefits:

  • A more precise and timely quote can be provided to customers
  • Work orders are better organized, decreasing time
  • Equipment and material inventory is tracked more accurately, decreasing material waste
  • Real-time productivity is tracked
  • Climate controlled environment improves quality control and production
  • Jobsite congestion is reduced
  • Construction schedules are accelerated
