"We got everything done on schedule, and this project had an accelerated schedule - less than a year from breaking ground to move in. Prefab definitely helped me. I had fewer electricians out here working than I normally would have needed."
- George, Foreman


When your project's on an aggressive schedule (and let's face it, who's project isn't?), you need to find a way to make the most of the time and manpower you have. 

 

The team working on the Ravenswood Medical Clinic decided to use prefabrication in order to speed up installation and keep up with the schedule. "We saw that there were a lot of similar rooms," said George, the Electrical Foreman on the project, "and with the amount of receptacles in all the exam rooms we thought it would be advantageous to have the rooms prefabricated rather than building out every room individually." 

 

Delucchi Electric's just-in-time manufacturing techniques provided flexibility through many change orders without changing the project timeline. "Mike did a wonderful job of keeping up with the changes," noted George. "As quick as I could get them to him, the very next box [of assemblies] already had the changes implemented​."

"At the peak there were just four electricians working on power and lighting. [Without prefab] I would have needed at least six, probably eight [electricians]."
- Joe, Foreman


When staying on schedule is your top priority, "staffing up" is not your only option to get everything done on time.

 

It's not just the Journeymen Electricians who save time when using Delucchi Electric's prefabrication services. The Foreman, Joe, saw a huge decrease in the amount of time he spent ordering materials. He was able to use that time focusing on the more complicated aspects of the project. 

 

Joe needed fewer electricians to install Delucchi Electric's assemblies and "would have absolutely preferred to have apprentices installing​" because the assemblies were so simple to install. "The other big benefit was the time it took to trim out the job. Instead of needing to go and squat near every single receptacle, pull out the makeup, etcetera, it only takes a couple of minutes per...but a couple of minutes per... times 300…you're definitely saving time," said Joe.
