What does prefab mean?
The word prefabricated, which is not Turkish as its origin, has settled in our language because of the word "prefabricate" which means "pre-fabricated parts" in English. According to this concept, which fully meets the meaning of the word, the parts of the prefabricated buildings are actually produced in the factory environment before the construction process.
We can argue that the most important feature of prefabricated buildings that distinguish them from reinforced concrete and other building types is that they are produced in advance. However, we must emphasize that prefabricated buildings have many other features.
After making a general introduction to answer the question of what is prefabricated, let us give information about the usage areas by saying that these structures are actually used in many areas of life.
Accordingly, it is possible to apply to prefabricated buildings for residences where all the families may need to live together, schools where students can receive education, dormitories and dining halls that see the need for accommodation during the construction process, and even social facilities.
As can be seen, the prefabricated buildings, which offer a large number of uses, are also eye-catching with their distinctive features. So let's begin to evaluate the main features of prefabricated structures, if you wish.
