The evolution of prefabricated buildings has been tremendous in the construction industry. While conventional methods are highly opted, prefabrication has gained a great pace for its quicker development, off-site production, and cost-effectiveness. It was for the prefab technology that helped in overcoming the disastrous aftermath of natural calamities causing loss of shelter and homes.
Prefab homes date back to the 1900s, when construction companies sold ‘house kits’, which were assembled with the help of hired but skilled labourers. Prefab homes became the major source for low-cost housing that met the needful of a traditionally-built house. The prefab industry became popular around the 2000s when customization in architecture & interior design were starting to become a preference. The benefit of being easily transferable from one location to another is also one of the reasons for its popularity. Though not all prefab homes are mobile, it is purely based upon the client’s requirements of a temporary or permanent housing.
The recent and modern prefab homes are not just a quickly-assembled housing structure but carry a fully-customized interior design. Solvabuild homes are built with the aim of serving the purpose of comfort living with prefabricated houses, designed by our professional interior designers & architectures. Construction of a prefab home involves an 8-step process where we plan, design & build your dream home. LET’S BREAK DOWN THE PROCESS.
1. Planning & Discussion
To produce a successful prefab construction, the first & foremost step is to understand your requisites-
- Why do you want to build a new home?
- What concern are you facing in your existing housing?
- What enhancements do you need in your existing housing?
- Why did you opt for a prefab home?
- What is your land area?
- How would the floor-length division look like?
- & much more…
To host a vast number of satisfied clients, our team carries out a brainstorming session with the client where the designers & architects breakdown their thoughts and plan give an overview of how their prefab designs would look.
The planned strategy is then implemented by all the designers who develop a hand-drawn and graphical illustration containing every detail, from measurements to placements. Our team discusses the architectural features of your prefab home & explain your vision through the home design. Solvabuild prefabricated homes are designed with respect to your housing goals. So dream on, we’re onto it!
The process evolves with the introduction of 3D rendering and building a mock-up on how it would appear on the site allocated. The sizes of rooms and modules can be well-determined with the 3Ds while freezing on the materials and its quantity that would be required to complete the prefab building.
The sample modules are well-tested against the external extremities, discerning its strength for withstanding uncalled disasters. The three prefab structure types are- LGSF (Light Gauge Steel Frame), Steel prefab & PUF (Polyurethane Foam) Panels and our architects stipulate the accurate structure suitability for your home. The structures are mainly made of steel, being one the strongest metals known, durability is guaranteed.
Once the design & mock-ups are approved by the client, all the material required to build the panels are gathered. Timber, steel and concrete are the major components needed to build prefabricated buildings. Prefab structures are also largely known for their eco-friendliness being produced from waste & discarded materials. The ‘green’ structures can be made by re-using plastics, glass & other non-degradable items. The panels are built in-house with complete precision at the Solvabuild factories according to the measurements provided.
Once the panels are made, they are carefully packed, moved and shipped to the main site for further construction. Prefab construction is soundless since all the panels are built off-site; its contribution to noise pollution is almost nullable.
7. Final built/ Assembling
The construction workers assemble the panels carefully and build the prefab building in no-time. The panels are light-weighted, thus require lesser manpower than traditional construction. From residential to commercial to extension projects, every module is perfectly attached in days that can be counted on your fingers!
8. Final touches & testing
Once the building is constructed along with all the civil work including electrical insulation, fire insulation, soundproofing, thermal insulation, etc., the house is tested before finalizing. The prefab house or building is checked by scrutinizing every factor before handing over to you for moving in!
Solvabuild team believes in delivering the home of your dreams with utmost care & accuracy. The team’s responsiveness to building your house, irrespective of the climate or geographical conditions is what makes Solvabuild homes worth opting for!
