Clark Pacific’s Prefabricated Systems Approach
Why Offsite Construction?
Traditional Construction Today is Risky
- Labor Shortages: Industry relies heavily on skilled labor availability
- Schedule Delays: 61% of typical projects are delivered late
- Lower Quality: Quality can suffer when costs spike and schedule slips
- Material Availability: Demand and market volatility drive price fluctuations
- Cost Overruns: 49% of typical projects are over budget
- Risk to Revenue: Delays and cost overruns threaten financial models
Leverage Offsite Construction for Better Project Outcomes
- Less Site Labor: Reduced site labor and related impacts
- Faster Schedules: Schedule compression and greater schedule certainty
- Better Quality: Manufacturing drives reliable and more consistent quality
- Material Control: Manufacturing reduces supply chain risks
- Lower Costs: Manufacturing model drives cost certainty
- Time to Revenue: Increased level of control and certainty
Design Where It Matters
Plant to Jobsite
Offsite Construction extends the project site, while site work is being completed the building is being manufactured with more precision and quality in the plant.
Get Started on Developing Your Offsite Strategy
We’ve developed an easy to follow workbook that will help you create your offsite strategy. The exercises walk you through setting targets, building the team and next steps as you approach future projects.
Learn how to:
- Avoid missteps
- Align procurement policies for prefabrication
- Evaluate previous projects and determine where offsite would have been beneficial
- Look at future projects and identify opportunities for prefabrication
- Understand how prefabrication can help your bottom line
Leverage Cutting-Edge Technology | Design Through Construction
As a manufacturer our approach to Building Information Modeling (BIM) is personal, we depend on the latest technology, to design for manufacturing (DfMA) and strive for the most efficient design for constructability. Because we are self-performers of work beyond customary build-in-place, our details and constructability feedback are administered with more precision and quality.
Model to Fabrication
Clark Pacific coordinates all the information into the models which are leveraged to fully support fabrication directly from the model, with no intermediate steps in our integrated process.
Below is a brief list of the processes from model to fabrication that we leverage:
- Rebar fabrication
- Miscellaneous Metal fabrication
- Bill of Materials
Drawings (with no “dress-up” in CAD)
- Diagrammatics (Work Instructions)
- 4D site logistics
- Physical site coordination
- Safety information
We construct virtual mock-ups before building them physically. This approach enables us to identify and expose how to resolve issues that can lead to physical and sequencing clashes. Using virtual reality tools also enables better visualization of the project which leads to stakeholders having greater overall confidence in the final solution.
