Encore Electric Prefabrication
Prefabrication is an important part of our culture at Encore Electric. It has been defining the practices of our craftsmen, from apprentice through superintendent, for the past 25 years.
Our team excels in identifying repetitive field installations and adapting them to LEAN manufacturing processes. By prefabricating many of the components we use in our own projects, we continue to improve quality, safety, scheduling and productivity on site. Its advantages have been proven on all of our project types, in all geographic locations.
Encore Electric’s Prefabrication Capabilities
We use our Virtual Design Construction and Building Information Modeling (BIM) modeling software to find ways to speed up construction and lower costs. This is especially beneficial on large projects that have a large number of identical assemblies.
We prefabricate and assemble electrical components in our own 16,000 square foot facility. Our shop provides all the equipment, materials and workers needed to create the modular building blocks required for today’s fast-paced projects. Our prefabrication team works closely with our engineering team to quickly transform computer-generated models into electrical building blocks for just-in-time construction.
Our facility provides secure warehousing for off-site material storage to support timely deliveries and reduce project congestion at the site.
Safety Benefits of Prefabrication
Prefabrication, in a controlled shop environment, means that our crews have less exposure to many potentially hazardous situations on job sites. With prefabrication, crews spend less time working on elevated platforms or around dangerous operating equipment.
Using prefabricated components is ideal for installations that:
- Can be constructed on a bench instead of on a platform lift for safer installations, such as atrium lighting and supports.
- Are assembled, wired and labeled on a bench instead of over high finishes, such as the wire-mold above lab counters.
- Occur in areas of high congestion where fewer electricians would improve trade flow in areas, like multi-trade corridor carrier racks for conduit and piping.
- Are used for remote projects where craftsman and material resourcing is challenging, as in modular buildings for remote gas monitoring stations.
We are proud of our collaborative approach to exploring new and different multi-trade prefabrication opportunities with our project partners.
We are a UL508A listed control panel assembly shop.
