Re: Pre-engineered - Prefabricated

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Shiraz Shahid,
 
        My understanding of the terminology would be the following.
 
        Prefabricated would mean fabricated off-site and delivered to the site for installation.  This would be in opposition to on site fabricated.  It wouldn't necessarily be engineered by the fabricator; or even engineered at all.
 
        Pre-engineered would mean engineered in advance before the end use is known or even before the site location is known.
 
Regards,

Hi

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,

Shiraz Shahid.
