Increase efficiency while reducing waste.

Any form of modular or manufacturing-based delivery method requires alignment from all stakeholders. This is especially true for the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, given their complexity and coordination requirements. Attempting to transform traditionally-minded trade partners to fill these roles is challenging and creates risk.

Demain’s integrated team aligns these systems, along with the functions of engineering, fabrication and installation to operate with the mindset of a tiered supply chain provider. This benefits modular builders or general contractors with a unified MEP partner, already familiar with the unique needs of industrialized construction.


  • Engineers are teamed with shop fabricators and field installers.
  • Modelers use a digital catalog that consists of materials and assemblies pre-qualified by the manufacturing shop.
  • Design deliverables are custom-tailored and standardized to support the manufacturing and installation needs of each program.

Manufacturing & Fabrication:

  • Support at the planning stage to optimize labor and material resourcing strategy.
  • Labor is provided for final assembly at lead fabricator’s facility, when/if needed.
  • MEP kits and assemblies manufactured through the Demain supplier network.


  • Coordination with Demain affiliate installation network to ensure field activities and pricing are reflective of the delivery method.
  • Provide field teams with design deliverables specific to the assembly of manufactured components.

Case Study

The Benefits of Industrializing Construction

Many studies and experiences have highlighted the waste in building design and construction. In fact, it is estimated that as much as 30 percent of the total weight of building materials delivered to a building site is wasted [1]. Industry thought leaders have promoted digitization and prefabrication as strategies to eliminate that waste by reducing time, cost and risk.

Using the hypothetical fit-out of a single patient room as an example, this study was intended to quantify the improvements brought on by embracing data and prefabrication. Proctored by Demain member company, Kohrs Lonnemann Heil Engineers, Inc. (KLH Engineers), an audience of more than 50 construction professionals participated in “Workshop F: Discovering the Power of Data to Inform Multi-Trade Prefabrication Decision Making” at the 2021 Advancing Prefabrication Conference in Dallas, Texas.
