The Problems Associated with Prefabrication

Are their Downsides to Prefabrication?

It is very much true that everything designed by man has its strength and weakness for that reason we will be committing a big fallacy if we fail to mention the problems with prefabrication as much as we told you about the benefits. Many today see prefabrication as the answer to reducing construction costs and improving productivity in New Zealand, but our experience shows there are some tunnels to pass through before seeing the light.

A Visit to a New Zealand Conference

A visit to the Building a Better New Zealand conference on Beacon’s experience with off-site construction of a Christchurch show home, the HIVE High Performance House.

A tour round the unique project was breathtaking, in that we not only focused on the construction phase, but we also followed the house right through the marketing and sales process.  And that made the tour much more interesting.

From our experience at the facility, it became obvious to us that building in a factory brings many benefits which may sound ironic.  The project or building construction was faster because it was uninterrupted by bad weather (no muddy site for us!).  Contractors enjoyed a safer work environment, especially when installing cladding and roof.  The more controlled environment of a factory made it easier to manage inwards goods, and also easier to sort and recycle/reuse waste.  And we were thrilled with the speed and productivity of the build – 10 weeks in the factory for a house complete with roof, windows, cladding and lining!

New Zealand the hive house

Reflecting on all the activities which the process encompassed, we would say with all confidence that constructing the house was the easy part!

The sales process was an eye opener and it raises a number of problems that prefabrication needs to overcome if it is to become the answer to New Zealand’s housing affordability and supply challenges.
What rapidly became apparent was that prefabricated houses have to compete with “normal” houses which are sold as a combined home and land package.  Although some buyers had land and were looking for a house, they wanted a “ready to move in” price including foundations, services and all consents.  Not only was this particularly difficult in Christchurch where most sites require specific foundation design, it also suggests that any prefabrication business needs to offer a wrap-around service to provide the full equivalent package.  You can’t just sell the house and expect the new buyer to sort out the moving, consent and services details.

Sustainability and Adaptability

Now, we would not forget to mention yet another barrier we came up against while carrying out the project which is the prevalence of covenants in subdivision dictating building size, design and value.  Due to the proliferation of subdivisions which is a common norm in Christchurch, we had a number of interested buyers with sections governed by covenants which specifically excluded prefabricated homes.  It comes down to market perception (more on that later) but it was very clear that prefabricated houses are not welcome in subdivisions!
The above real life experience is a clear explanation to the reason why most current providers of prefabricated houses target rural properties, batches, minor units and worker housing – rather than the new homes sector or in other words, urban properties.

Prefabrication also needs to find a way to meet the market’s fixation with house size.  Developers will claim that they are responding to the market, although at the same time covenants are requiring houses of a certain size which are 3-4 bedrooms, 2/3 bathrooms, triple car garage – that’s the norm.

Highly Efficient Material Utilization

In our case we were trialing off-site construction of the entire house, and this limited the design to a 2 bedroom, 100m2 house which was as big as could be built in the factory and easily transported.  The implication of this is that off-site construction of larger houses needs to take a modular approach, more like that trialled in our Hobsonville duplex which built walls and pods off-site and put them together on-site.

One outstanding challenge to prefabrication that can not be overemphasized is finance; it is no doubt another major barrier to prefabrication housing.  The security for a loan is a piece of land – not a house.  As we discovered when financing the High Performance House onto its HIVE site, no bank will lend on a mortgage until the house is on the proposed site. In addition, no bank will lend on a mortgage without a valuation but valuers are reluctant to value a house without a piece of land associated with it!
This means buyers have to pay cash or borrow against another house if they want to shift a prefabricated house onto a site – a major barrier for many buyers.  This reinforces the bach/second house/low cost granny flat view of prefabrication.

Finally, we all know the power of feedback to any business in this generation we are now living, so feedback from buyers, particularly in the run up to the auction of the house, was indicative of another challenge for prefabrication.  Call a house prefabricated and buyers immediately assumed it was “cheap”, “a kitset” and “a step above a portacom” (too many people with bad memories of old prefab classrooms!). Our real estate agent reported that buyers expected to pay only about half what a “normal” house costs.
This was despite the HIVE High Performance House being very well appointed with quality finishing and jam-packed with good performance features which would substantially reduce running costs in the future.  Put that in a “normal” house and I’d hazard a guess that you’d pay a premium for it.

So, to cut the long story short, we have to turn around the market perception of prefabrication.  It’s going to take a concerted effort – building quality is not enough, we have to make it easier for buyers AND change their thinking.  For our part, here at Beacon, we are working out some beautify term which would be the best synonym for the word “prefabrication”.  From the reviews we have gathered, it is obvious that too many bad hands have been in association with prefabrication.

Advantages of Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings

The Best Equestrian Structures on the Market

Many today have wondered what fabricated or pre-engineered steel buildings are all about, still others are in dark as to the advantages it presents over other building materials. Well, in this article, we are going expand to the fullest extent possible their advantages over other building materials. Quote us anywhere, when it comes to customization, speed of construction, and decreased maintenance and insurance costs, nothing beats a pre engineered metal building.

Pre-Engineered Steel Buildings Are Customizable and Strong

It is very much true today that the tastes of clients change day after, and those tastes can only be satisfied through fabrication no mater style your client wants, it can be created from steel at a manufacturing plant and delivered to the job site with little or no additional work done on it. From warehouses, retail spaces, event centers, down to residential homes, all are ideal steel projects as are most other buildings no matter their intended use. Steel buildings can be designed to match the surrounding environment or to stand out as a wonder of architecture. Today’s steel building manufacturers can create panels with the textures, colors, and shapes of other materials that retain the strength steel can impart.

Pre Engineered Steel Buildings

Durability and Reliability

When it comes to life span, no one can argue the fact that a steel structure has almost an indefinite life span as it can last for decades while still maintaining its usefulness during its entire life. Practical test and use has shown that steel buildings can withstand extreme environment, high winds, earthquakes, and other events that would level a wooden structure. Termites and other pests cannot harm metal, which also retards cracking, rot, and fire.

Galvalume, a specialized steel coating material or agent helps to protect the surface of metal from rust while allowing the surface to be painted or coated with other coverings.

Some worry today that metal building can be easily distinguished from other materials. Well, that is not the case as we would highlight some special characteristics that make pre-engineered metal buildings designs to be indistinguishable from other materials:

  • Metal roof panels can mimic wood or asphalt shingles
  • Wall panels can be painted in an endless variety of colors or be made to look like brickwork.
  • A steel frame can be covered with stone or synthetic materials that look like stone
  • Interiors are designed for any use from small office to long span open space
  • Steel also provides great strength without bulkiness.
  • Stone is strong, but buildings can be created from steel that would be impractical in terms of weight when compared with that of stone.
  • Wood construction is much weaker than steel and can be prone to rot when not given the adequate care needed.

Sustainability and Adaptability

One beautiful characteristics of steel is the fact that it is 100% recyclable. In fact, a good portion of the steel used in construction today has been recycled from other uses. If, in the future, the pre engineered steel building you construct must be dismantled or demolished, the steel can be re-used elsewhere instead of taking up space in a landfill.
More than ever, emphasis is place more on going green today; hence, the need of steel as it is the best material available for creating green structures. Steel does not give off toxic fumes during the construction process nor in the event of fire or other disasters.
Sustainable construction is crucial in obtaining a LEED certification, which can make your client’s building more attractive to certain lessees that may prefer or require an environmentally friendly building or, at the least, green construction.
Research and field test has shown that steel structures are also easy to insulate and have tighter fittings around doors and windows. Heating and cooling costs are lowered. With cool roof design, heat island effects can be mitigated as well, so the surrounding environment is subject to less heat.

Highly Efficient Material Utilization

During the manufacturing process, the use of advanced CAD/CAM processes decreases the amount of waste material substantially. Fabrication is accomplished with minimal raw material waste yet met the strictest strength-to-weight ratios.

In fact, steel has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any material, 25 times greater than wood. A lighter frame translates into a more cost-effective foundation and the ability to add other materials with less concern for completed building weight.

 

Prefabricated Metal Buildings = Shorter Construction Time

A pre engineered steel buildings as the name implies is created to defined measurements as well as to precise specifications. Each structure is designed and pre-built for easy reassembly. Site work, such as preparation and foundation placement, can be completed concurrently as the building is being manufactured.

 

Once complete, the pre engineered steel building is shipped with all required hardware to the job site where it is put together. While this still requires skilled labor, the time to completion is significantly shorter than if all fabrication took place in the field.

Shorter construction times translate into lower labor costs and earlier return on investment for your client.

Lower Construction Costs

Over the years, it has been proved that not only are labor costs of fabricating steel buildings minimized, other construction costs are lower as well, by as much as 60%.

Automated engineering at the manufacturer saves time and raw material waste. As mentioned above, some construction processes can be performed concurrently at the site while awaiting the arrival of the building components.

A steel structure, being lighter than other materials, can stand on a foundation that costs less to create. Add to this the ease of re-assembly which mitigates construction costs in labor time and, in some areas, the level of skill needed to complete the job.

Easy To Maintain

Since steel is so durable, it requires less maintenance than other building materials. The members are not susceptible to rotting and will not need periodic replacement. Colored steel coatings do not require repainting. All steel surfaces can be easily cleaned with water and detergent.

Insurance and Safety Advantages

As we all know, the need for safety in any building can not be overemphasized, to that effect insurance and safety advantages begin with construction and live on in a stable building.

  • Investment in research and education = safer manufacturing environment
  • Shorter construction times = Less chance for injury
  • Prefabricated and pre-engineered = Less risk during construction (assembly)
  • Durable, fire and disaster resistant materials = Lower insurance premiums and increased chance of rebates

Easy Expansion

A well built steel-framed facility or building once completed remains highly flexible in how it can be used. Spatial design can be reworked by moving interior walls, adding or subtracting wall and floor coverings, or changing openings.

 

If your client needs more space, you can add to the building through enclosing more floor space or by building upwards. A steel frame is strong enough to take the additional weight of added stories. More space can be added at ground level by adding more units onto an existing building, expanding its footprint.

In each case, a steel building manufacturer can precisely fabricate new members and frame elements to fit the existing building.

 

Why build with inferior materials when you can get superior materials?

 

Funny enough, steel is the least expensive and most durable building material available. It provides design flexibility and an extremely hazard resistant facility that can be modified, expanded or changed to suit your taste any time you so desire without ripping your pocket off. A pre engineered steel building will be useful for time indefinite and is made from sustainable materials that can subsequently be recycled into new structures in the future.

 

Don’t go for anything less, go for steel!!!

Equestrian Specific Steel Horse Barns

The Best Equestrian Structures on the Market

The coming of age with prefabricated steel horse barns has changed the stallion horse shelter market. Cindy Hale, the writer with HorseChannel.com, noticed that we have seen a grand move from days when “proprietors had a couple of decisions while building a home for their steeds.” The first shaft outbuilding developments, she states, “were tough for some time, however rapidly wound up plainly interesting and unsteady,” notwithstanding being numerous months in their making and development. For Hale, the present steel horse barns are a disclosure:

“With progress in pre-engineered steel structures, inventiveness in plan and stallion agreeable materials, the present steed proprietors would now be able to have the animal dwelling place they had always wanted in only a few tranquil days.”

Wood Buildings Instead of Steel Horse Barns? No Way!

“Interesting and weak” wooden shaft stables may seem like an exaggeration, yet anybody with involvement with old wooden outbuildings will be acquainted with the assortment of dangers postured to the wood by dampness, shape, decay, bother pervasion, horse cribbing, and so forth. By differentiating, these issues represent no risk to steel horse barns and building parts. This is the reason producers don’t delay to warrant pre-designed metal barn horse shelters to be free of imperfection from 20 to 40 years.

By picking a steel horse barns, you are additionally putting the security of your creatures first. Steel edges will withstand extraordinary winds and other dangerous climate conditions. This factor, alongside steel’s flame resistant nature, implies that you can rest simpler knowing your stallions are ensured, and the conceivably significant protection reserve funds for running with steel are an additional side advantage that affirms this. The Canadian Federation of Humane Societies takes note of that paying little respect to the building material utilized, you will at present need to play it safe against flame threats inside your animal dwelling place and that the time of “introductory building development is the most temperate time to introduce sprinkler and alert systems.”2 They additionally recommend to “utilize firewalls to separate squares of slows down, stretching out to 1m over the edge line.”2

Stallion and Rider is an amazing magazine to investigate when in the arranging stages for your horse shelter. A few articles analyzing the working of new horse shelters utilizing a mix of both ‘pre-designed’ and custom, home or strength assembled segments. The article, ‘First Barn’ portrays one such structure: “The horse shelter is really a measured working with custom components, for example, the yard and blend tack/nourish room. Since the modules come in standard sizes, others can be included later if extra components, for example, more slows down, a washroom or an office, are wanted.”3 Ease of extension is another significant offer point for pre-built outbuildings, as one spares the costs of moving their steeds out amid remodels. Make certain to tell your producer as right on time as could be expected under the circumstances in the event that you will need to extend later. For more helpful arranging data, make sure to look at our example floor designs and our component on horse outbuilding plan.

Steel’s Strength and Flexibility is Safer for Your Horses

Stallion proprietors realize that kicks can bring about creature damage. At the point when a steed kicks through wood, there is the potential for genuine chips. At the point when creatures kick a mass of block or brick work, they can break a leg. Steel boards, in any case, are sufficiently solid not to break; and sufficiently adaptable to give some dents, as opposed to causing a break. Creatures likewise can’t bite through steel; in this way giving a more secure condition less upkeep.

At that point, measure the coveted space around the auto for strolling room, and in addition, the measure of space you wish to have for capacity. It’s essential to observe the measurements of your prefabricated steel garage building will be from the outside, in this way the inside will be somewhat smaller.

For most carports and garages, the base size for one auto is 20 ft. long and 10 ft. wide, while a two-auto carport is for the most part around 20 ft. long and 18 ft. wide.

On the off chance that space is the thing that you are after, agreeable measurements for a one-auto carport extend from 24 ft. long to 15 ft. wide, while a two-auto carport can be as expansive as around 24 ft. long and 24 ft. wide.

Distinctive vehicles come in each size under the sun. On the off chance that you possess a Smart Car, for instance, stockpiling is once in a while an issue at just 8 feet 10 crawls long. A Mini Cooper is not prone to cause you any capacity cerebral pains either at 12 feet long. Be that as it may, a minivan can come in at 17 feet long, and pickup trucks can reach up to 20 feet long (and some are much more.) Comfortable measurements represent something other than your vehicle stockpiling.

To guarantee there is sufficient space for putting away smaller articles like baggage, a bicycle, or a little lawn mower, consider adding no less than four feet to both the length and width of the building. In the event that you anticipate utilizing your steel carport as a workshop too, an extra 10 feet ought to give sufficient space to a workbench and device stockpiling range.

The extent of your vehicles will likewise decide the width and stature of your carport entryways, which are commonly bought independently from your pre-designed steel garage buildings.

Do bigger carports level with higher building costs?

The expanded expenses related to building a bigger carport are negligible in the master plan.

A bigger metal carport will likewise get you higher resale esteem on your home – exceeding any expanded expenses as you will soon observe the arrival on the venture in the event that you anticipate offering.

How essential is the style of the carport’s outside wrap up?

In the event that your carport will be situated close to your home, it is beneficial to keep the outside appearance good with the style of the home. For instance, if the home has clapboard siding, you ought to consider applying a similar kind of siding to the carport outside.

In the event that a carport’s outside complete or compositional style does not supplement the home, it could influence the property’s resale esteem.

Some normal outline components to remember when planning your pre-designed steel carport building incorporates the incline of the rooftop, the outside complete, and the style of entryways and window outlines, which should resound the style of your home. Our pre-designed steel carports arrived in an assortment of completions to fulfill your inward home finishing master.

Remember that pre-built steel carport packs do exclude entryways, electric carport entryway openers, windows, sky facing windows, or whatever other plan components, which must be bought independently.

You will likewise need to choose whether your pre-built steel garage buildings will be connected or isolates from your home. A confined carport is a different building that is normally set a couple of feet from the home and can be associated with a secured breezeway. Some home outlines, similar to those with wrap around patios, have an all the more tastefully satisfying appearance when the carport is separated. The objective is to have the carport look as though it were gotten ready for the house, not work sometime later.

Do you anticipate gathering the pack yourself, and provided that this is true, do you have extra labor prepared to help you with the hard work?

While numerous smaller structures can be collected without the requirement for a temporary worker, you may at present need to enroll someone else to help with part of the gathering of your pre-built steel carport. You may likewise need to consider leasing a little forklift from your neighborhood handyman shop for a couple of days to help with raising your structure.

For a bigger steel garage building (30×40 and bigger) it might be important to enlist a general temporary worker and also lease a water driven crane. A temporary worker can accompany many advantages, from the well-being of mind knowing an expert is close by, to having somebody there to deal with the cerebral pain of getting a building grant and managing any diagram changes that could be asked for by the building reviewer.

On the off chance that you do anticipate procuring a temporary worker, be that as it may, guarantee you do your examination to stay away from expensive missteps:

  1. Make a few inquiries loved ones for names of legitimate organizations.
  2. Approach temporary workers for a rundown of references, and don’t simply tune into their remarks, go take a gander at their homes.
  3. Many states and regions expect contractual workers to be authorized. Verify whether your temporary worker is authorized, yet don’t simply trust them. Request the permit number and check with your neighborhood managing body.
  4. Check with the Better Business Bureau to check whether your temporary worker has a grievances document.
  5. Ensure the temporary worker has protection for individual obligation, specialist’s remuneration, and property harm. Observe their protection declarations and ensure they are present. In the event that you anticipate spending a great deal of cash on your building venture, you need to ensure you are shrouded on the off chance that something turns out badly.

Residential Metal Buildings are More Affordable

For Your Consideration DIY Enthusiasts! Do you have a requirement for an interesting shop, a storage area for your watercraft, plane or RV, or even have a young person looking for their own private space outside the home?

Prefabricated residential metal buildings is the most solid and financially savvy answer for all your fabricating needs. These simple to-amass structures can be raised rapidly and effectively, frequently without a requirement for proficient offer assistance. Despite the fact that they are self-get together, pre-engineered residential metal buildings have a top of the line adjustable appearance.

Albeit customary building strategies utilizing wood, block or even stone shape a critical piece of the legacy of stable shed and workshop development, there’s no correlation with the sturdiness and cost-viability of a present day building material like steel. Worked from the most grounded and most solid development material available, a steel building can face a wide range of climate powers, from hail to wind blasts, snow, rain, and ice.

On the off chance that you anticipate utilizing your steel working in all seasons, the structure can be protected to keep it warm in winter and cool in summer. Protection additionally gives soundproofing qualities to help keep outside commotions quieted, or keep uproarious clamors inside from being heard by pariahs.

Pre-Construction Planning Considerations

Zoning Restrictions

Building controls fluctuate between districts, so it is vital to do your exploration on whether there are particular impediments on your property with building an extra structure. Properties each have singular zoning consents. For instance, a property could have private or business zoning, or even direct-control zoning, which all accompanied extraordinary building prerequisites and guidelines.

Basic building directions identify with how far the structure is from the property line, the tallness of the building, or even the appearance.

On the off chance that there are zoning confinements keeping you from raising your pre-built steel building, you can request the ordinance at town lobby.

In an interesting procedure, you should be prepared to vouch for why you need the zoning changed. It is regularly useful to accumulate bolster from your neighbors before achieving this progression of the interest procedure.

Metals buildings are an excellent choice for new home construction. The solid steel frame provides a strong backbone for your new home and is very cost efficient. Steel is actually less expensive than most other building material choices, allowing you to maximize your budget and add additional amenities to your home, inside and out. Metal buildings are also more energy efficient too, potentially saving you up to 25% a year in heating and cooling costs.

Building Permits

Before collecting a pre-designed private steel building, check first on the off chance that you have to acquire building grants from your nearby civil office.

On the off chance that you do, you will require outline designs of your proposed fabricating, which can be given by the separate maker of your pre-built steel building unit. An enrolled outsider must confirm the plans. A building examiner will audit your proposed development. Regular issues a building monitor searches for incorporate electrical wiring, the toughness of the rooftop for the atmosphere in which you are living, quake security, and auxiliary components of the building. By and large, bigger structures have more stringent building directions. Steel building producers are probably not going to offer you a pre-built building on the off chance that they don’t trust the structure will meet all requirements for a building grant inside your specific district.

Coastal Steel Structures specializes in straight wall metal buildings, so we’re going to discuss what we know. If you’re looking for a “ball park” figure, here is the math…

A straight wall steel structure spanning 1,500 square feet is very strong due to its prefabricated engineering. A 30×50 Metal Building also very versatile and easy to assemble.

Pre-Engineered Metal Building Prices

The materials add to the 30×50 metal building prices. However, for a straight wall building costs start at $9.00 a square foot and go up from there. So, for arguments sake let’s just say the building will cost you $13,500.00 = (30×50=1,500x$9.00). You’ll want to factor in a charge for delivery (about 8%) $13,500 $1,687 = $15,187. Now you want to factor in the accessories like windows, doors, over hangs etc… For this you may want to factor in 20% of your overall building cost $13,500 x 20% = $2,600.00.

30x50 Metal Building Prices
