Gaston Electrical featured in ConstructionDive.com’s Offsite Construction Series: Pre-Fabrication

Gaston Electrical Principal Bill Weber was recently featured in ConstructionDive.com’s Offsite Construction Series. In his discussion with writer Kim Slowey, Bill comments on the many benefits of pre-fabrication and the efficiencies it creates.

From the article: Prefabrication can even encompass entire smaller-scale structures, like a house, that are built and shipped in pieces and put together on site. Prefabricated systems and components can be built in a factory designated for such work or in a contractor’s warehouse. Bill Weber, principal at Gaston Electrical, in Norwood, MA, told Construction Dive in June that the ability to work with other subcontractors in order to assemble multi-trade racks ahead of time can reduce onsite skilled labor requirements by as much as half. And, according to Weber, companies that don’t take advantage of the efficiencies prefab offers could be setting themselves up for failure.

Bil Weber featured on ConstructionDive.com “Dotted Line” Series

Gaston Electrical Principal Bill Weber was recently featured in ConstructionDive.com’s Dotted Line Series. In his discussion with writer Kim Slowey, Bill comments on best practices for project communication, planning, manpower, and materials.

From the article: Weber said Gaston project teams meet weekly to review the workforce needs on every job, a process that lets them prepare enough in advance so that they can avoid shortages. “The worst thing in construction,” he said, “is to get to a point where you haven’t planned in advance and have a need to fill but don’t have any means of meeting that need.”
