Your barn kit assembly process is easier than ever before!

Prefabrication is now a standard offering included in the price of most DC Structures building kits. This service, unparalleled in the industry, allows our clients to jump-start their construction process, saving them thousands of dollars.

The controlled environment of prefabrication allows for more accurate construction, tighter joints and better overall quality. All prefabricated pieces are prepared by an experienced crew in a weather resistant factory with multiple quality checks throughout the process. Some components of the building are constructed using precise machine equipment to ensure conformity.

Prefabricated construction projects often take 30% to 50% fewer framing man-hours than conventional builds.

That means fewer days with carpenters on-site and less vulnerability to weather delays or illnesses that can extend deadlines by days or weeks. Reduce your equipment rental expenses thanks to shorter rental periods and more efficient building methods that require fewer specialized machines. The simplified construction process also reduces traffic on your job site and cuts down on noise, pollution, waste, and other common irritants.

Since prefabrication is done in a factory environment utilizing dry material, there is less risk of problems associated with moisture, environmental hazards and dirt. An indoor construction environment also presents considerably fewer risks for accidents and other liabilities.

  • Each post slotted for knife plates
