Mitsui Home became the construction leader through their commitment to a well-developed and skillfully implemented advanced construction system.
Mitsui Home’s “One Day Lock-Up” Construction Standard
Prefabricating as much as possible, combined with a world-class JIT delivery system, allows Mitsui Home to erect most of their custom homes to a “lock-up” condition in just one day. In many of Mitsui Home’s factories, the windows are also pre-installed in the wall panels. This “systemized” approach ensures (1) the highest possible construction quality; (2) the fastest delivery of the home to the home-owner; (3) the most efficient use of materials; (4) the most efficient use of site-labor; and (5) the least disruption to the community during construction, with heavy equipment at the site for only one day. Construction methodologies are evolving in many jurisdictions of the world. Prefabrication is a foundation element of systemization; and in systemization, design detail and accuracy is paramount.
