9780070165618: Offsite Construction

Researched through observation and interviews with contractors and tradesmen over a 22 year period, this text is a primer on making money in offsite construction for the homebuilding contractor. It focuses on areas not part of the traditional "site" but nonetheless important to the builder's overall success such as: underground utilities; masonry; street grading; driveways; walls; fences; gates and landscaping. The book discusses the impact that scheduling supervision, policies, procedures and the building plans have upon offsite construction quality and profits.
