Using our bolt-together system, our metal stairs can be installed in your facility much quicker than traditional stair systems. If the prefabricated stairs are going to be installed to an existing structure, in most cases the system can be installed in no time at all. When comparing this installation to the on-site fabrication of traditional stair system, this part of the process will take much longer. There will need to be a much bigger working area for the extra materials on site and the machinery used to make the custom cuts into the materials. And of course, with these custom, on-site material cuts come the additional waste and inevitable clean up that comes along with it.
The prefabricated construction process offers a quicker project schedule than site-built in nearly all project categories. Looking at the chart above, you can see that the first two steps in the process are the exact same. Both types start with designing and engineering the structure. This step will ensure the system fits in with the rest of the facility and will be structurally sound. Permits and approvals will make sure the structure passes all building codes and standards. However, the third step in the process is where the prefabricated stair system takes the lead. In the prefab/modular construction process, site development and foundation occur at the same time that the structure is being fabricated in an off-site facility. Next, all the prefabricated stairs needs is to be installed on site. For on-site construction, the builders can only start on the stairs after the site has been fully cleared, and afterward, the site restoration takes much longer, cleaning up wasted materials, moving machinery, and any other site-built by-products.
