component building

component building

A building made of prefabricated components that are then delivered to the construction site and assembled.In housing,the modular home is an example,although a manufactured home that is assembled elsewhere and delivered to the site would not be a component building. Components could include tilt-up concrete walls popular with commercial construction, and structural insulated wall and roof panels (providing rigidity, sheathing, insulation, wire chases, and sometimes even outside and inside finishes all in one product) for residential construction.The ultimate component building is an apartment building of self-contained apartment rectangles built elsewhere and then stacked together like children's building blocks.
