While materials are sourced from accredited sustainable suppliers, factory fabrication reduces overall waste to landfill sites by over 80% as compared to conventional construction. Wood is a renewable resource and requires 70-90% less energy to convert vs steel and 94% less than aluminum. Wood is also a tool for sequestering carbon dioxide.
TBS offers a competitive overall project pricing model. Since the manufacturing activities occur within a controlled environment, we also offer our clients improved cost control and predictability. In addition, as a direct result of our reduced construction schedule, financial holding costs and site overhead are significantly lower compared with conventional construction.
Based on advanced manufacturing principles, supervision, proper tools, equipment and processes, employee training, automated production systems, and a rigorous quality control program, our company’s objective is to virtually eliminate unit defects and hence costly on-site re-works.
Reduced Building Mass
In comparison to concrete and steel construction, the use of timber materials reduces the overall building mass by a factor of at least 50%, resulting in lower substructure construction cost.
TBS recognises the high level of variability in design of buildings, hence offers almost complete architectural and spatial layout freedom. Using the auto industry’s principles of Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA), we ensure the utmost efficiency and functionality of every aspect of design, fabrication and site construction.
Contrary to traditional site built construction, factory fabrication can overlap site development and foundation phases, resulting in projects being delivered at least 30% faster.
Health & Safety
A significant number of man-hours occur within a safer controlled factory environment, reducing exposure to higher risk site conditions. TBS’s patented system also eliminates the need for exterior scaffolding and minimises the need for elevated work requirements.
Logistics & Interference
The units are shipped in a pre-assembled panel configuration, optimized for load capacity, shipping and delivery logistics. The total number of loads to site is greatly reduced resulting in lower transportation cost and simplified on-site traffic logistics. In addition, a closely coordinated delivery sequence schedule eliminates the need for large laydown areas. The reduction of site man-hours also minimizes multi-trades interference especially on projects where space is limited, hence improving overall productivity.
