Off-site Construction Facility

Steelway have recently improved their off-site fabrication operation, by investing in additional premises. The site is based in north Wolverhampton with excellent access to the motorway network, which helps with transporting the pre-assembled structures nationwide.

The off-site construction facility is served by 6no 5 tonne lifting capacity overhead cranes. We now have 3 Bays operational as demand for the service has increased.

The growth of off-site fabrication and assembly 

There is a growing demand for off-site modular construction across all sectors. Relating, both to the modular construction of entire buildings, and to off-site fabrication of large components. The reason for its popularity is the many benefits that come from fabricating and assembling elements before they leave the factory.

The Benefits of off-site Construction

Documented benefits of off-site construction versus traditional on-site construction include:

  • improvement in site safety –reduced health and safety risks on site
  • shorter construction schedules - significantly reduces on-site installation time
  • reduced material waste - off-site construction generates up to 90% less waste than traditional on-site building methods
  • reduced site disturbance - factory-based construction minimises time on site, meaning less noise and disruption, as well as a cleaner, safer, less congested site
  • cost and time certainty – factory-built projects are not subject to weather-related delays or site-based skills shortages, so buildings can be completed on time and budget
  • quality assurance – zero tolerance of defects means all products meet strict quality standards before leaving the factory
  • easier social distancing – we have written about how separating fabrication from sites could help with social distancing measures.

Increased productivity and quality for large-scale commercial projects, the off-site assembly of components such as staircases, access platforms and walkways can save valuable time and money. Productivity is massively increased with offsite options because it means elements can be completed up to 50% faster than using traditional methods.
