Lean prefabrication is a methodology that can be used to streamline the production of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) components. It involves the use of modular, pre-assembled components that can be quickly and easily installed on-site. This approach can save time and money while also reducing waste and improving quality control. In this blog post, we look at what this practice means to EVO-MEP, with a look at how we’re working to enforce it.

Why is lean construction important in the prefabrication of building services?

There are many reasons why lean construction is important in the prefabrication of mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) services. One of the most important reasons is that it helps to reduce waste and improve efficiency. By reducing waste, lean construction can help to save time and money whilst still ensuring that quality standards are met. In addition to this, lean construction can help to improve communication and coordination between different teams involved in the prefabrication process, which can further improve efficiency and reduce errors.

Lean process also helps to create a better working environment. When workers can work more efficiently and with less waste, they are often more satisfied with their jobs as they’re helping to curb carbon footprints. This can lead to increased morale and productivity, which can benefit the company and, in turn, our clients.

Overall, lean construction is important in the prefabrication of MEP services because it helps to improve efficiency, reduce waste, and create a better working environment. These benefits can help to improve the bottom line for a company while still ensuring that quality standards are met.

How are EVO MEP’s team undertaking the Cert IV in Process Manufacturing?

The Cert IV in Process Manufacturing is a nationally recognised qualification that provides individuals with the skills and knowledge required to work in process manufacturing industries. The qualification covers a range of topics including safety, quality, production, maintenance and management.

The EVO MEP team are committed to undertaking the Cert IV in Process Manufacturing to upgrade their skills and knowledge. We’ve been working hard to complete the necessary training requirements and are now well underway with the qualification. Our team’s journey toward the completion of the Cert IV in Process Manufacturing has been a challenging but rewarding one, and the learnings and outcomes are both beneficial to our individual team members and our internal processes.

This qualification has also allowed our business to be able to:

Continuously evolve

The Cert IV in Process Manufacturing has been pivotal in helping us to evolve. This is because the course has provided us with the knowledge and skills needed to improve our processes across the business, as well as giving us an understanding of the latest industry trends. This is helping our team to identify areas where they can make improvements and implement changes that will result in a more efficient and effective business.

In addition, the team is also learning how to better communicate with customers and suppliers, which is essential for maintaining good relationships. Ultimately, the Cert IV in Process Manufacturing is helping our team at EVO MEP to evolve their business and become more competitive in today’s market.

To improve

EVO MEP are continuously providing new opportunities to improve their team’s skills and knowledge. From manual handling to first aid, forklift licence to Lean Manufacturing, these new initiatives are designed to support our team, our business and ultimately our clients.

To eliminate waste

At EVO MEP, we are always looking ways to improve efficiency with a particular focus on reducing waste and improving safety. By improving our understanding of how manufacturing processes work, we’ve been able to identify and correct areas that are causing problems. For example; a new factory waste removal process has been implemented; drill bits are now being returned, sharpened and reused rather than simply disposed of. The team are also investigating options to purchase a ‘tug’ to be used within the factory to reduce, or even eliminate, the need for a forklift within the workshop. These few examples help our team streamline processes, reduce waste and maximise our team’s time and efficiency.
