Industrialization of Construction®: Signal or Noise? Threat or Promise?

Industrialization is not a new concept. ELECTRI International wanted to offer members of the electrical construction industry a means of getting and staying ahead of the Industrialization of Construction®.  ELECTRI’s research would focus on looking forward and identifying what the future of construction will look like during and after Industrialization.

ELECTRI commissioned MCA, Inc.  to conduct the research in three phases:

  • A report on the State of Industrialization highlighting signals for the industry and individual contractors to watch for indicating progress along the trajectory of Industrialization. This part of the project included a Self-Evaluation tool, as a means for individual contractors to know where they stand.
  • An Industrialization Application Guidebook, which is included in the main report, that contractors can use when applying various hands-on applications within their businesses to move their own needle forward along the industrialization trajectory. The Guidebook details clinical trials and results of the applications’ use and provides insight on ease of application and learning from practitioners.
  • An Industrialization of Construction® Roadmap that anticipates industry landscape changes that will be required to move forward on the trajectory plus industry-wide Lead and Lag indicators to measure the progress toward Industrialization.
