Prefabrication

G.J. Hopkins Prefabrication: A Proven Practice Meets Modern Technology

Assembling mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems in our shop, rather than on the construction site, makes your project faster and more affordable. In _R0C5579addition to saving you time and money, mechanical and electrical prefabrication also improves the overall quality and safety of your project. Since assemblies are built in a controlled environment, prefabrication also allows for year round construction in all climates.

At G.J. Hopkins, we combine the latest Building Information Modeling technology (BIM) with modern prefabrication techniques in order to maximize the efficiency of your construction project. Because BIM makes more information available early on in the collaborative process between builders, designers and architects, prefabrication can begin earlier and be used far more frequently and effectively than ever before. Additional BIM fabrication software allows our shop to size and cut ductwork in the most efficient way possible, saving even more time, money and materials.

In short, prefabrication means making the most of your construction project through better planning, preparation and communication.

Here are some of the ways mechanical and electrical prefabrication and BIM will streamline your construction project:

  • save money
  • save time
  • safer construction site
  • improve overall quality
  • improve team collaboration & communication
  • more effective use of labor
