Full description

Notes pressure for the UK construction industry to raise productivity, reduce costs and improve quality. Against this background analyses prefabrication and preassembly in the building services sector to: 1) produce guidance for building services engineers, project managers and clients explaining how prefabrication and preassembly of building services can produce more economic installations, and 2) produce costed examples of conventional and prefabricated/preassembled solutions.
 
Examines how the various techniques developed in response to the time, cost and quality issues could be applied more widely to benefit all those involved. In three separate sections, 1) details comparisons with traditional approaches, gives information on the critical success factors, provides a range of visual aids and makes best practice recommendations, 2) presents nine detailed practical case studies each demonstrating a range of quantifiable benefits and 3) supplies background information on other literature and research methodology used to quantify productivity improvements.
