The evolving construction industry is now looking beyond traditional methods and adopting dry construction.

FREMONT, CA: The construction industry is experiencing a shift. Stakeholders are going beyond traditional methods and experimenting with new techniques. One such technique that holds a lot of promise is dry construction. Unlike the conventional construction systems, dry construction involves prefabricated components that can be assembled on the site. Such a process is very different from the traditional way of building that uses bricks and concrete. Some of the factors that work in favor of dry construction are listed below.

Conventional construction is a long-drawn process and requires a lot of time. On the contrary, dry construction allows the completion of projects within short periods. Since most of the components that go into creating the structure are already fabricated, one only has to assemble them on the site. There is no need to wait for days to allow concrete to dry and gain strength. Thus, the total time taken to complete a structure reduces significantly.

• Minimizes Construction Cost

In the case of traditional methods of construction, factors like weather can create hurdles.  With dry construction, the factor of uncertainty declines. It is easier to stick to a schedule and complete projects on time.  Avoiding downtimes makes a project very cost-efficient. Wastage of raw materials and labor requirements also reduces. As a result, dry construction proved to be a better option with respect to construction costs involved. 

• Contributes to Environmental Sustainability

Dry construction is a greener alternative when compared to conventional construction methods. It has less impact, and the components used are not as harmful to the environment. Apart from that, materials used in dry construction can also be recycled efficiently, thereby minimizing wastage. The energy consumption is also less when prefabricated components are used instead of excavating and creating entire structures from scratch.

In many respects, dry construction comes across as the better option. As the construction industry advances, new materials can make dry construction even more advantageous in the near future.
