Prefabrication is better.

Prefabrication is better than traditional construction methodologies for so many reasons. Computer numerically controlled (CNC) technology ensures pinpoint accuracy and significantly less waste. The real clincher though is speed. A prefabricated home can potentially be put together in 1 day. 1 day! No need to worry about driving rain and wind in the middle of winter when you’re trying to get your roof finished. Just put the pieces together on site on a nice day. When building a home time really is money. Prefabrication could be the silver bullet to the New Zealand’s housing shortage.
