Introduction: The article presents a study and justification of the concept for the erection of prefabricated buildings out of modules on a pre-arranged foundation with a comprehensive assessment of quality, accuracy, constructability and safety of building superstructure blocks. Purpose of the study: Development of rapid construction is driven by the need for affordable housing in Russian towns and cities, the need for the erection of buildings of various purposes within short time frames in regions with severe and extreme climate. Methods: Prefabricated construction is a promising industry, but it is required to perform studies on the selection of optimal organizational and technological solutions, aligning those with modern standards and requirements. Results: The authors consider a method of choosing a technique for the construction of pile foundations for multi-purpose prefabricated buildings with account for the analysis of existing loads and structural features. Determination of constructability criteria makes it possible to assess the comparative efficiency of the prefabricated-construction techniques with account for data of geotechnical surveys, conditions of a construction site, etc.
