    Abstract

    The construction industry as we know it today has been built around traditional construction methods that date back throughout the ages, we still continue to use these methods because they are not only effective but also reliable. With the increasing need to construct buildings for housing and the economy for the ever expanding population, different methods have been designed to speed
    up the process have been introduced.
    Prefabrication has been around for hundreds of years but with new technology emerging within the twenty first century it has been able to expand and reach a level of effectiveness not seen before. With more and more construction sites switching to prefabrication there has been an impact on how the site is managed and how effectively it can be used which have caused project managers as such to start to rethink their construction planning to accommodate for prefabrication. For this reason it is important to assess just how much of an impact prefabrication has had on the construction industry.
