India is one of the fastest, emerging and developing country in the world. The development of the construction sector is rapid with the commencement of new construction technology. The primary aspects of construction management of any project are time, cost and quality; in addition to this the important factor of prefabricated technology includes construction waste reduction. However, in India conventional method takes more time and energy for planning and designing; whereas prefabrication is a new technology which is more convenient, environmental friendly and effective.
