Prefabrication Services

Prefabrication / Lean Construction

Industrial Electric provides prefabrication services. Our company fabricates electrical assemblies in our prefabrication shop, then delivers the electrical assemblies to the construction jobsite to be installed. By moving some of the electrical work from our jobsite to our prefabrication shop and fabricating electrical assembles ahead of time, our company can provide benefits such as:

  • Significant increase in the productivity and safety by providing a controlled environment and enhancing the labor reliability
  • Higher quality can be achieved by repeating the same task many times makes workers more proficient and as a result fewer defects occur
  • Quality control and assurance is enhanced by providing additional supervision on the tasks being done off-site
  • Decreases the jobsite congestion by moving parts of the work away so fewer workers are necessary
  • Less storage space is needed and prefabricated work is delivered to the jobsite just-in-time
  • Prefabrication makes it easy to recycle waste with a controlled environment to collect the waste
  • Avoid issues and gain potential cost and time savings

Some examples of electrical prefabrication our company assembles offsite are:

  • Duct banks
  • I/O panels
  • Pre-wired panels and transformers
  • Conduit supports
  • Panel assemblies and frames
  • Temporary power and lighting
  • Uni-strut racks and frames
  • Wall rough-in assemblies
  • Welded assemblies
  • Light fixtures
  • Transformer stands

Industrial Electric’s prefabrication builds and enhances on the lean construction philosophies and just-in-time delivery methods. This requires more effort and time preplanning than the traditional practices. Communication and coordination with the different trades and contractors from the beginning of a project makes for a more efficient and cost controlled install on the job site.

Our company’s lean construction procedures emphasizes the continuous flow of production, the elimination of waste and non- value adding activities, and maximizes the pursuit of continuous improvement.

Examples of waste include:

  • Products with defects
  • Unnecessary tools and equipment
  • Unnecessary delays
  • Transportation
  • Inventories
  • Moving
  • Overproduction
