Abstract: Prefabricated prefinished buildings (PPVC) is a more innovative and cleaner way to reorganize production in the construction industry. Although the application of PPVC has been well received over the past few decades, the limitations of using PPVC have not been explored. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the main factors influencing the adoption of PPVC and propose a set of feasible mitigation strategies to address these factors. To achieve these goals, a comprehensive literature review was conducted first, followed by a structured questionnaire survey of 41 Singapore construction organizations. The analysis showed that the top five major limiting factors and found the top three most effective mitigation strategies. This study contributes to the knowledge system by studying the constraints and mitigation strategies of PPVC. At the same time, the results of this study also have some implications for the industry to understand and implement PPVC better. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
