The Atlanta Business Chronicle headline “The City Is Booming” says it all. We are blessed to live and work in a region with outstanding growth. The article headline mentioned that construction permits soared to a record $5.6B for the full calendar year of 2018. The other amazing fact is that this number was under a billion in 2011. This is quite a ride for the city and the traffic that we all put up with living in the Atlanta metro. , but we wonder how all that work is going to get done.
Of the $5.6B, how much will be built with offsite construction? Leading mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) construction firms around the country are implementing pre-fabrication workflows that leverage technology to save cost and time. These workflows also reduce jobsite related accidents as work is moved inside to a safer shop environment. We look at that $5.6B number and wonder how much of that construction can be done with pre-fabrication to enable cost savings and on-time delivery of construction projects. Many of these leading firms are using our Our eVolve MEP SaaS solution. These clients have documented significant savings as they embrace pre-fabrication despite the challenges they face with a shrinking labor force and a lack of skilled workers.
Let us know how you have dealt with these on-going challenges and whether you have adopted any pre-fabrication into your construction projects. We often hear that we want to do it but don’t know how. We love the challenge and the thrill of leading our clients and prospects on this journey. It doesn’t matter whether you are in the Electrical or Mechanical field, give us a call or email us with your story!
