The erection of the wall panels and floor units will be rapid. As an indication, six to eight rooms can be erected in a day and the lead time will be 12 weeks 19. 1 Production tolerances It is essential to fully consider tolerances at the design stage to improve buildability and quality of the finished building. This section introduces the tolerances that should be considered. In the Eurocode system, recommended production tolerances are provided in the product standards for precast concrete. The production tolerances can be varied in the execution specification and the values here are for guidance only, but note stricter tolerances may incur a cost premium.
