Parallel Construction is a term August Winter & Sons has developed, originating from the idea of maximizing prefabrication efforts to provide value to our customers. Parallel construction is a construction process in which mechanical and plumbing components of a new building are simultaneously constructed in our shop, while the frame and foundation of the building is constructed on site. This process allows us to accelerate the construction schedule and improve the quality of the final product.
By incorporating the August Winter team earlier than traditional methods, it allows us to integrate with a project’s design team and help guide collaboration between the design and construction groups. The integration of these two teams early in the project allows us to effectively use Parallel Construction.
