Three decades back, a construction site was a place where all building materials were brought in fabricated or mended as per need and then used. For example cement, sand, stonechips and water was assembled at construction site; mixed as per design and used. Brick kilns were the only manufacturing/ prefabrication done in advance for construction. Storing of inventory at construction sites wasvery much prevalent.
The concept of factories and automobile industry like ‘lean engineering’, ‘just in time delivery’ and prefabrication have changed the very picture of construction site. But till early 2000 prefabrication in construction rebars was only in concept. Around 2010 prefabrication of TMT rebars started in India and now it has become indispensable for both large as well as small scale project.
