Prefabrication has been proven to support owner objectives in reducing the overall schedule for hospital builds and can be implemented to achieve fast-track construction. Learn how JV team Gilbane | Massaro achieved outstanding results utilizing off-site prefabrication at the Allegheny Health Network’s (AHN) New Wexford Hospital and Parking Garage project in Wexford, PA. During this session, the team will conduct a deep dive on the prefabrication process. They will share the challenges and benefits of prefabrication on this hospital project and highlight key opportunities for prefabrication including racks for duct, plumbing, HVAC piping and insulation. They will also give recommendations, lessons learned and best practices for future prefabrication opportunities. This Lean process is the future of construction in the healthcare sector and when strategically planned from day one with all parties, owners can expect their schedule and cost objectives to be achieved through its use.

1: Identify opportunities for prefabrication during the design stage to support client-driven, fast-track completion date.
2: Assess potential challenges and solutions during prefabrication to ensure a successful outcome for the client.
3: Describe the benefits associated with prefabrication off-site including quality control, safety, and schedule.
4: Create a potential prefabrication schedule based upon the new construction of a hospital to ensure all entities are held accountable.
