Prefabricated Housing is the Solution of the New Crisis Era
The World has been battling against the COVID-19 virus for the past 2 years now, due to which the day-to-day lifestyle has gone through a series of changes.
The Pandemic situation has majorly affected all sectors of the World. Certain new implementations and measures have been adopted in various sectors. Accordingly, various alternative solutions have emerged to deal with human safety and avoid the spread of infection.
Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Construction Sector
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought in a situation where it has become important to find safer and smarter ways of building homes and offices.
The global health crisis has confirmed the urgent requirement for using smart prefab construction methods to ensure the health safety of individuals working at construction sites, tackle inefficiency, outdated techniques and environmental challenges.
In places where construction sites have re-started, a maximum of 50% to 60% workers can physically return to work sites maintaining social distancing rules. Thus, it is expected to cause a drop in productivity rates.
Solutions to deal with the problem
The demand for high-quality housing solutions continue to rise in urban areas. There is a need for providing better and more spacious accommodations to the population to reduce overcrowding. Prefabricated construction solutions have emerged to be the ideal choice.
Prefab construction is safer, faster and more reliable than conventional construction methods. Factories typically offer a more controlled working environment compared to building sites, with static workspaces and more structured supervision. This makes it easier to implement safety processes and procedures such as physical distancing. Site-based activities, on the other hand, commonly include a lot of interaction between workers.
Prefabricated construction require minimal workers for installation, when compared to traditional construction, which reduces accidents on-site. Thus, it not only helps with issues around physical distancing in the COVID-19 context, but also accelerates production.
New homes for a new era
To alleviate the risk of spreading infection, providing high-quality homes has become an urgent priority. Prefabricated structures can be a comfortable housing solution. It has the potential to take us into a new and more sustainable era of home-building.
Nest-In from the house of Tata Steel, is a prefabricated end-to-end construction solution, where convenience meets comfort. Nest-In provides 2-3 times faster construction when compared to RCC construction and uses Light Gauge Steel Frames (LGSF) to construct its prefab solutions which is not just aesthetically appealing, but also, produced in a temperature-controlled environment/factory setting.
