Let’s focus for a bit on how prefabrication can speed up electrical installations.
Contractors working on large scale, repetitive jobs such as hotels, condos, dorms, etc. often look for ways to speed up the electrical wiring installation. Many large contracting firms have their own prefabrication operation to increase efficiencies on projects. Smaller to medium sized contractors can benefit from working with manufacturers on prefabricated assemblies to reduce onsite labor. There are many options and levels of service contractors can explore to reduce labor and installation times and remain competitive in the marketplace.
Which device assembly to choose?
Depending on the need of the contractor, prefabrication options range from basic to fully engineered systems.
Type AC and MC Cables commonly come in 250 foot coils or 1,000 foot reels. Moving them from position to position can be time consuming and add to labor expense. Using Typical Assemblies or Fully Engineered System, the length of MC Cable is pre-cut, reducing the number of coils and reels on the site that need to be transported from area to area. Additional time and labor is saved by eliminating the need to measure and cut cable to the desired length, usually resulting in waste.
