Industrialization & precasting

Puebla (México)
Friday, 27 April 2018

With these lines we intend to clarify two similar concepts that tend to be confused in our sector: precasting/prefabrication and industrialization.

If we look up the term "prefabrication" in the Cambridge Dictionary, we are referred to the verb "prefabricate", whose definition is: "Manufacture sections of (a building or piece of furniture) to enable quick assembly on site". Furthermore, we can also use the adjectives “prefabricated”, “prefab” or “precast” for structures or elements that are manufactured in this way.

Therefore, when we carry out a precast construction project, in the final location we only perform the assembly of the previously manufactured pieces. Obviously, there may be projects with a higher or lower degree of precasting, and this degree of precasting is inversely proportional to the waste generated on site: the more waste, the less prefabrication.
