message from general manager

“Prefab Building Solutions exists to help industrial and commercial organisations reduce the costs and complexity of construction. The projects needs vary for each company, whether the structure should be built in remote area with limited infrastructure, or when the construction should be finished in shortest lead times.

Our capabilities enable us to supply turnkey structures in weeks while helping clients to drive their costs down throughout the supply chain, typically saving up to 50% on total procurement expenditures in respect to traditional construction methods.”

Pete Toms, Founder and Global Managing Director
What We Do

We provide a turnkey solution of prefabricated houses and modular buildings for a variety of business sectors, wherever they are. Once we design the project, we will then manufacture materials including main structure, utilities equipment, furnishing and whatever needed, at various facilities across China.

Our Vision

To provide practical, high-quality, innovative solutions using the latest technology and environmentally friendly materials, delivered efficiently within a compliant, trackable delivery system.

Services

No other company makes the impossible look easy so consistently. As a full-service provider, we identify simple, rapid-deployment design and engineering solutions, followed by fast, efficient manufacturing and project management right up to procurement and logistics. Our job isn’t finished until your project is up and running. We inspect and consolidate goods here in China and can send engineers to the client’s site to supervise.

After the initial installation phase, our expert consultants can also assist on Utility Service Installation through a binding partnership with PACT, a large multinational engineering firm specializing in EPC projects for water treatment and water desalination. We can also assist with the provision of sanitary ware, furniture, furnishings, kitchen equipment and power generations to optimize the productivity of your project.
