In our previous blogs (Read 1Read 2) we have talked about how today in such adverse times when the world fights a unique war with COVID19, the prefab construction methodology is more relevant than ever. The normal life of people is expected to be redefined when the lockdown is lifted and masses recommence their daily routine. The world has survived all pandemics in the past. We are alive and more populous than ever is proof of that, hence taking forward the inspiration from the past we should not just sit back and wait for the situation to get normal or just rely on medical science, rather we should all responsibly play our part in this fight. The most lethal weapon against coronavirus is social distancing, and by working from your home is how you can strike!

What will be the Estimated Cost of Construction of a prefab room on my terrace top?

It is not possible to state a price that can be applied to the Pan-India context, as the price of various components differs from location to location. Also, even if someone has mentioned the space available, they still have to select the kind of electrical fittings, insulation, interior design, floor layout, tiles, bath fittings, type of external wall panels, etc. which is something that will vary from user to user, and thus, it is hard to standardize the estimated cost of construction.

Nevertheless, you being the homeowner, need to know your budget and what amenities and specification you would like in your house and then Limpid Construction can work effectively to plan and fit your requirement into your budget.

Now, so that you can have an idea let’s explore our recent Prefab rooftop project in Indore and have a look at the commercials.

Advantages of a Prefab Construction

So, the reason we recommend prefab construction for your home extension (adding room, a separate room to work from home, etc.) project is because of the number of advantages it has to offer. The entire construction process was:

  1. Really quick: It took us just 5 days to complete the whole project since it is just the installation work that was done at the site.
  2. No separate government approvals were required: Since prefab construction doesn’t add to the FAR(FSI), no additional approvals are required. So, no more additional approval cost, no more time lost in bureaucracy, no more running from pillar to post.
  3. One-Stop-Shop: We all know how painful coordinating with multiple contractors is. You save the stress and time to deal with all different vendors and contractors, we take care of all the coordination and ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience.
  4. Contactless delivery: This quick in-and-out and less labor-intensive construction methodology are especially useful at such times where social distancing is most important.
  5. Clean and Dry at Worksite: All materials are factory-made hence, the project site was clean all the time.
  6. Durability: Prefab buildings can be designed to withstand most extreme conditions such as high winds, intense seismic activity, or heavy snow. Also, as steel is inherently a noncombustible material, prefab homes have very high fire-retardant properties.
  7. Less wastage: Because you don’t have to bring extra materials to the site which also lowers the risk of damage due to theft of material at the site.
  8. The superior quality of construction: As all components are produced at close supervision in factories quality and precision was maintained throughout the process.
  9. Cost-effective: Given the benefits mentioned above, the cost of construction was just at par with the conventional brick and mortar construction if not less with seamless delivery.


Prefab housing is efficient, durable, cost-effective, eco-friendly, and sustainable, and also quick in its delivery, thus be it homes or business structures it is time to adopt prefab construction.

So, if you are considering getting an additional room built or even building an entire house using a prefab construction in Indore, Limpid Construction is here to help.
