Construction Manufacturing


OVERVIEW

Construction Manufacturing is where the AEC Industry is headed. Owners are looking for buildings to be turned over faster, and in order to help speed up the process construction manufacturing has been a large role. 

OCP Contractors is far ahead of the of the game. We have been manufacturing parts of projects since 2012. We have full time warehouse employees on staff to get the work completed and shipped to the site on-time. 

We are a leader in the industry through a process that includes experience, innovation and trial and error. We have been able to identify a number of cost saving assemblies that can be prefabricated and installed on site in an efficient manner.

We have been utilizing a combination fully fabricated assemblies, partially fabricated assemblies, sub-assemblies, pre-cut parts and equipment that can be used on site to assemble items. The following are some examples:

  • Pre-cutting, sizing, punching and machining various field installed items - Items include cold formed generic clips including punched holes, pre-cutting metal stud items using a hydraulic cutting machine, ripping and sizing various wood blocking components and ripping and sizing drywall.
  • Metal framing brackets – Items include, interior and exterior soffit brackets, parapet brackets and any odd or complex shapes that are labor intensive to assemble.
  • Pre-shaped drywall – Fabrication of prefinished shapes using the milling machine, including the use of a special tool that cuts a recessed joint into the butt end of drywall panels.
  • Fully fabricated metal stud soffits and parapet sections that are lifted into place and fastened at the site.
  • Fabrication of tables and jigs that can be used in the field for assembling various components. This includes and portable compression table for compressing load bearing wall panels on site. Fabricating on site eliminates the trucking costs for shipping.
  • Pre-cutting of metal framing members from the manufacturers. Wherever possible we are ordering pre-cut stud from the manufacturers to eliminate both field and shop labor.
