Why Use Wall Panels? Quality: We design each building with a real time parametric 3-d software that allows us to analyze the building as it is being designed. Savings: The dry-in time for a house using wall panels is significantly shorter than stick framing. This saves money in construction costs. The simplicity of erecting a panelized home allows for a less experienced construction crew, saving cost of labor and costly mistakes from field decisions. Far less scrap material is generated on a jobsite using panelized walls. This saves money in waste scrap and in dumpster rental and removal. Safety: Panelization reduces the amount of lumber being cut on a jobsite. Thereby, reducing injuries resulting from cutting lumber.
The real time 3-d capabilities of our wall panel software allows us to analyze the entire structure while we design it.
After a plan is finalized, it is sent to one of our local manufacturing plants, for assembly.
Wall panels are built in jigs to insure squareness and reduce racking.
Exterior sheathing is applied in the factory. This saves time and money in the field, and reduces racking during shipping.
The construction schedule for the house shown in the presentation : Monday: crew began erecting walls. Tuesday: finish bracing/plumbing walls, add V.T.P. to all lower level walls. Floor trusses, for upper floor, delivered. Wednesday: set floor trusses for upper level. Thursday: set upper level walls, plumb all walls. Roof trusses delivered. Friday: add V.T.P. to upper walls, set roof trusses. Saturday: sheath roof
