When elements are manufactured, insulation, windows and doors are pre installed and the finished element is then transported to the site via truck. Once on site, a crane then unloads each of the individual sections onto the foundation and assembles the connections together. Following the erection of the external envelope, electrical and plumbing work is then carried out on-site after the building is watertight, followed by internal work such as plasterboard installation and final finishing.
Element construction is more ideally suited to larger homes or buildings that may have a more intricate design and a more complex electrical and plumbing system. Element buildings allow for a more intricate design and does not rely on the traditional post and beam construction method as all parts are constructed in the factory environment.
