The timing of contractor engagement impacts the ability to get construction input on structural assembly sequence & detailing.


A bracing plan is important, and has a large effect on installation. Establish a bracing plan early and integrate it into the connection details.

Prefabrication advantages: — Higher quality components that are more precisely manufactured are produced, which reduces installation time, schedule length, and site deliveries. — Waste on site is reduced, saving disposal costs — Concurrent off site work can take place in controlled conditions. — Change orders are reduced in number — Mass panel penetrations are well lighted up, making MEP runs easier — Negligible shimming and furring and adjustments — Reduced number of fastening steps on site results in the structure being enclosed more quickly
