The ELCON System is on average most likely to be more cost effective than traditional indigenous forms of construction for the following reasons:
The ELCON System is more akin to a manufacturing / production line system and therefore requires less skilled manpower per unit constructed than by traditional methods.
The early enclosure of the structure means it is less affected by the weather.
The speed of the system reduces unnecessary expenditure caused by delay.
Further, quicker completions lead to quicker sales and income, therefore finance costs involved are substantially reduced.
The system obviates the need for wet trades, principally wall renders and plaster, reducing the cost of the finishing trades.
The incorporation of electrical conduiting reduces the cost of electrical installation.
The requirement for fitting out works to match the speed of erection of the structures means that bulk purchasing has to be made thereby creating an opportunity for discount purchase.
Reduced waste due to the mechanization process and the exact sitting of service locations, apertures etc
