At Scholes Electric, we have embraced prefabrication as a core element of our strategic approach to construction. With an 8,000 square foot pre-fab shop, coupled with 15,000 square feet of warehouse space, we can readily fabricate components for a project "in house". Additionally, on jobs with available space, we can set up an on-site pre-fab shop, depending on the needs of the project.
Our commitment to prefabrication is ingrained in our workflow, starting from the early layout and modeling phases of a project. The lead coordination team plays a pivotal role in identifying pre-fab opportunities during the design phase. Project superintendents and foremen conduct plan reviews to uncover additional prefab opportunities, ensuring a comprehensive integration of prefabrication in our tactical plan.
Our pre-fab offerings cover a wide range, including conduit and raceway support systems, equipment- and device-flexible connection assemblies, panel board modifications, pre-punched boxes, and much more. The versatility of our pre-fab solutions allows us to cater to various construction needs with precision and efficiency.
The #1 benefit to Scholes’ prefabrication facility is SAFETY. Prefabricating electrical equipment off-site reduces the need for complex on-site assembly and minimizes exposure to potential hazards. This can contribute to improved overall safety on the construction site.
Prefabrication allows for more efficient use of labor, as skilled workers can focus on assembly and testing in a controlled environment, minimizing errors. This reduces the need for on-site rework, saving both time and money.
Our prefabrication takes place in a controlled manufacturing environment, ensuring consistent quality and adherence to standards. This can lead to higher reliability and reduced chances of defects, which reduces the time required for on-site installation. This can lead to quicker project completion and overall time savings.
Scholes Electric takes pride in contributing to environmental sustainability through reduced waste, energy-efficient building components, and better overall environmental quality control. Our commitment to sustainability aligns with the growing emphasis on eco-friendly construction practices.
Prefabrication allows for the customization of electrical components to meet specific project requirements. This flexibility can lead to better integration with overall project design and specifications.
In summary, Scholes' prefabrication of electrical equipment offers a range of benefits, including time and cost savings, improved quality, enhanced safety, and greater flexibility in meeting our customer project requirements. These advantages make it an attractive option for many construction projects.
