Identifying Prefabrication Strategies During Project Preconstruction

McKenney’s knows that proper planning in the preconstruction phase of a building project is key to ensuring that construction moves forward on time and finishes on budget.  We develop and implement prefabrication strategies to make the construction process simpler and more efficient.  This works particularly well for projects that are on a tight schedule by eliminating potential delays.

Prefabrication means that some components of a project are built or assembled at offsite locations, while onsite work in other areas continues as scheduled.  Some benefits of prefabrication include preventing delays, decreasing labor and materials costs, and reducing the time needed to complete a project.  During the preconstruction phase, our prefabrication teams keenly evaluate which elements of the build are best suited for prefabrication.

McKenney’s prefabrication teams ensure that all systems and equipment we install meet the design specifications for the project.  Our expertise in prefabrication and pre-assembly streamlines construction for high quality mechanical, plumbing, and automation and controls systems.

  •   Educational facility conversion – McKenney’s prefabricated and pre-assembled piping, plumbing, and grease ducts that were installed in a converted dining hall space of a large educational facility.  Offsite prefabrication allowed construction to remain on schedule while working around existing building occupants without disrupting operation.
  •   Healthcare renovation – At a major healthcare facility in Atlanta, McKenney’s pipe shop, plumbing shop, and sheet metal shop prefabrication teams collaborated to install new HVAC systems without disrupting ongoing patient services.  Additionally, a large stainless steel exhaust system had to be routed through multiple floors to the roof, where the fan would be installed.
