Anyone who has been involved in onsite construction is aware that a project is made up of thousands of minor details. Measurements go awry and specifications alter – each deviation creating headaches for clients, designers and builders alike. Enter the Off-Site construction industry and KES SmartBuild. State of the art buildings crafted in a controlled environment, with millimetre tolerances and exacting specification. Welcome to the future of the Built Environment.
What is off-site construction?
Off-site construction involves assembling complete buildings using individual steel-framed modules that are built in our Omagh based factory under controlled conditions. The modules are fully fitted with all electrics, plumbing, heating and internal finishes before they leave the factory. They are delivered to site by road and craned into position ready for final fitting out.
What are the benefits of off-site construction?
Off-site construction creates quality-assured buildings that can be completed quickly and safely to meet tight deadlines. The simple installation process is safe, clean and unobtrusive, causing minimal disruption to the site and minimal environmental impact.
- Timescale– buildings can be completed up to 50% faster than using traditional site-based construction methods. Factory based construction reduces site time, reduction on disruption and noise levels. Projects are not subject to weather related delays, scheduling issues or site based skills shortages, so buildings can be completed on time.
- Controlled environment– millimetre tolerances and exacting specifications means all products meet strict quality standards before leaving the factory.
- Budget– Many construction projects are made up of thousands of minor details, measurements go array, specifications altar, each deviation creating headaches for clients, designers and builders alike. Pre-agreed plans and exacting specification significantly minimises the chance of overspend and keeping a project within a predetermined budget.
- Temporary building– modular buildings can easily be expanded, reduced, reconfigured internally and even relocated to meet your changing needs.
