RE: Preengineered - Prefabricated

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Terms are sometimes regional.  My use:

Pre-engineered is like a large metal building assembled on site.

Pre-manufactured is like homes built on another site and moved in assembled.

Please if the list can tell me the difference between pre-engineered and pre-fabricated buildings. Or are they one and the same thing?


Best regards,
