The site was extremely tight so having as much completed offsite brought multiple benefits including fewer deliveries to the site, wind and watertight structures earlier to allow follow-on trades to start sooner & increased security of the structure all resulting in less time on site and lower costs. Sidey was also able to deliver significant cost savings for both contractor and client through value engineering the fenestration package, including specified materials, without compromising on the employers requirements.
Coordinating between the main contractor, offsite manufacturer and architect was key to enabling the bulk of the fenestration to be installed offsite successfully.
