Prefabrication, or ‘Prefab’, is the method of offsite construction, using innovative systems, technology and controlled factory environments to achieve superior & quality construction methods. Prefab panel homes are what we are deeply passionate about at Durapanel.
Our prefab panel home kits are an innovative solution that is scalable and sustainable. We are continually investing in new technology and applying new systems to remove unnecessary time and costs, but never at the expense of delivering a quality and customised solution for our partners.
The application of computer numerically controlled (CNC) technology, computer aided grafting and manufacturing (CAD-CAM) and factory controlled conditions allows for superior quality and less wastage, without compromising individuality in design.
With prefabricated homes, the construction process is much faster. This is because two parallel workstreams are happening simultaneously. Site-based foundations are built, as building parts are manufactured offsite.
Offsite manufacturing guarantees on-time completion and reduces delays caused by labour, rework and weather conditions. This efficiency leads to time and cost savings in the build process.
Prefab construction reduces waste onsite and increases energy efficiency with accurate building methods.
With less dependence on highly skilled labour, controlled environments translate to more jobs for less skilled workers. Additionally, one prefabrication factory can accommodate multiple building firms and projects at once.
In a controlled working environment, employees work at lower heights and are safe from varying weather conditions, enhancing overall worker health and safety.
