When you’re planning the development of a new building, time to occupancy is an important consideration. Williams Scotsman’s Concurrent Construction process is an accelerated construction method that allows you to occupy your building faster, saving time and money.
Unlike the linear process used with conventional construction, Concurrent Construction enables construction stages to occur simultaneously rather than in sequence. As a result, site work and offsite construction of the building happen at the same time, which cuts the construction timeline in half.
More than 50 percent of the Concurrent Construction process occurs off-site in a factory-controlled environment, reducing risks and controlling quality. Site work (preparation, foundations and utilities) happens while the building’s modules are being fabricated in the factory. Individual modules are then shipped to the site for final installation.
|Concurrent Construction enables occupancy up to 50% faster than conventional construction, since the construction stages occur simultaneously||Linear construction requires each stage of the construction process to be complete prior to proceeding|
|Controlled manufacturing processes and superior workmanship result in superior quality||Potential for inconsistent quality due to weather delays and variances in workmanship|
|Flexibility makes expansion easier||More engineering is required for expansion|
|Temporary/relocatable and permanent applications||Permanent applications|
|Same construction materials and building code compliance||Same construction materials and building code compliance|
