Owners Are Reluctant to Use Prefab and Modular Options, Study Says

Published in Engineering News-Record
Written by Jim Parsons

As prefabrication, modularization and other off-site construction techniques gain favor among contractors, a new study suggests that a substantial percentage of owners appear reluctant to adopt—or even explore—these methods for their own projects. And that could well pose an obstacle for builders trying to use these techniques to improve productivity and bridge the shortfall in skilled craft labor.

Five Phase Approach: Phase 2 – Detailed Design & Engineering

Roeslein & Associates undertakes every project with a clear understanding of its client’s imperative to bridge specific goals with its bottom line. Therefore, during every step of the 5-Phase Process, Roeslein’s engineers consistently evaluate project components with regard to cost, schedule, and quality. When Roeslein is involved at the Preliminary Engineering phase of the project, the preliminary design elements developed during Phase 1 – such as Process Flow diagrams, P & ID’s, Mass Balance Lists and Construction Specifications – support a smooth and seamless transition into Phase 2: Detailed Design & Engineering.

Five Phase Approach: Phase 1 – Conceptual Design

Phase One: Conceptual Design Phase.  For most large cap expenditure projects, the earlier Roeslein is involved, the more effectively Roeslein’s methodology identifies efficiencies.  At each step in the 5-Phase Approach, Roeslein evaluates project components relative to cost, schedule, and quality priorities.  Roeslein then helps the client give the proper weight to each of these priorities for each project component and analyze data for the development of final feasibility studies.  As part of the Conceptual Design Phase, Roeslein assists the client in the development of preliminary planning in five key areas: scope, budgets, responsibilities, schedules, and preliminary design.
