Construction can often interrupt the sustainability and inflow of tourists/guests to hotels and restaurants which can be an issue for cities like Los Angeles and Las Vegas that depend on tourism. To mitigate this issue, contractors can implement prefabrication (prefab) construction methods which feature off-site assembly of either the entire structure or parts of its interior and exterior design at a manufacturing facility. These elements are then transported to the site. Forté Specialty Contractors’ founder and CEO, Scott Acton, discusses how prefab construction allows for both “time- and cost-efficiency” for many projects, proving especially useful within the hospitality and tourism industries.
“According to a study by the Department of Commerce’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), prefab methods have demonstrated greater efficacy in terms of return on investment (ROI) among development of large-scale projects, with hotels and entertainment venues falling under this category.”
