471 - Prefabricated buildings and components thereof

This group comprises prefabricated buildings that are built in a factory or manufacturing facility and delivered to the construction site, and the components of prefabricated buildings built in a factory to be assembled later at a construction site. Prefabricated (factory-built) buildings are virtually complete and either unassembled or fully assembled (or manufactured) and ready to use; they can also be incomplete buildings, whether or not assembled, having the essential character of factory-built or prefabricated buildings. Prefabricated buildings can be used for residential or non-residential purposes.

A building refers to any roofed independent free-standing permanent construction or structure usually enclosed within external walls or dividing walls that extend from the foundations to the roof and comprises one or more rooms or other space. A building can be entered or accessed by persons or animals and is suitable or intended for protecting them and objects. A building can also include a separately usable underground construction.

A residential building refers to a construction in which at least half of the overall useful floor area is used or intended for residential or dwelling purposes.

A non-residential building refers to a construction in which more than half of the overall useful floor area is used or intended for non-residential purposes.
