Where possible we try and pre-fabricate as much as possible off site to make installation on site a smoother and simpler process.

We have our own pre-fabrication workshop at our head office in Dundee. 

Here are some key benefits of offsite fabrication:

 

Enhanced quality due to assembly in a workshop environment

Assembly in our pre-fabrication workshop produces enhanced quality due to the nature of our team working with all the tools they are used to. In addition, all employees are well versed in the common practices of our workshop environment and therefore, the quality of work produced increases.

 

Better material control due to all components being stocked in a workshop

Working from our pre-fabrication workshop enables us to improve material control as all materials used will be stocked in our workshop. We can better monitor the levels of stock we have, a can ascertain real-time figures because of this way of working.

 

Increased labour productivity from the operatives

In addition to creating a higher quality of work, carrying on fabrication offsite also enables our operatives to increase productivity levels.

 

Progress not effected by weather conditions

All joking aside, Scotland’s weather can be as wet as it is unpredictable. Trying to plan fabrication projects around the weather here is a mammoth task, and the nature of offsite fabrication completely removes this hindrance.

 

Improved Health & Safety

When we carry our work in our pre-fabrication, we are working from an environment we already know, and indeed, an environment where we stipulate the highest levels of health and safety. Therefore, the potential for any accidents are hugely decreased.
