Prefabrication and Modularisation

Off site modular construction and fabrication is a low cost, efficient and sustainable method of producing plant, process and system installations. Merit has one of the largest fabrication facilities in the UK, integrated with an in-house design team. We are able to provide fabrication for standard systems including mechanical, electrical and instrumentation to specific process plant, pipework and skids for use in manufacturing and cleanroom environments such as semiconductors and pharmaceuticals.

Prefabrication offers a number of advantages including:

  • Reduced onsite labour numbers
  • Improved productivity
  • Reduced cost
  • Improved quality
  • Just-in-time delivery to sites with limited access and set down areas
  • Reduced H&S issues
  • Reduced site delivery traffic
  • Reduction in waste

Due to the size of our fabrication facility, pre-fabricated modules/plant rooms etc can be stored off site until the building/project is ready to accept them.

Our experience has shown that prefabrication can be used in the following areas:

  • Data Centres
  • Waste to Energy Plants
  • Commercial
  • Industrial
  • Retail
  • Research Facilities
  • Synchrotrons
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Semiconductor
  • Packaged Plant Rooms
  • Containerised Laboratories
  • Process Skids
