Prefabricated Ornamental Railing Systems

CES Learning Units: 1 LU/HSW

During the era of social distancing, to better serve the health interests of the community, traditional construction methods must change. Contractors must find new ways to work.

Proper social distancing on a job site means that where once several people could work together to complete an installation, many installations will now need to be handled by someone working alone. Without an effective strategy, social distancing will have a tremendous negative effect on the overall cost of construction.

How can architects, engineers, and designers help their builders and general contractors to succeed in the era of social distancing? To the greatest extent possible, specify architectural products which are custom fabricated 100% offsite (custom prefabricated), and delivered to the job site ready-to-be-installed.

Offsite fabrication of architectural products allows the builder/general contractor to use fewer and less-skilled workers on the job site. For example, with ornamental railing 1 person can complete a job that may have required 2 or 3 highly skilled people to accomplish with traditional construction methods.

After taking the course, you should be able to explain the differences and advantages of architectural railing products built onsite versus those fabricated 100% offsite and you will see how these principles can influence other product choices you make for your projects.
