Building Walls Walls are typically constructed from wood, pre-cast concrete, and steel.
Wood Framed Walls Wood walls are strong, inexpensive, and easy to build. Walls can be fabricated on site or pre-assembled and delivered to the building site.
Wood Framed Walls Wall cavities are filled with insulation after wiring and plumping is installed.
Precast Concrete Walls Precast walls can be fabricated as many shapes and forms. Reinforcement bars and wire mesh are used to hold the concrete in place.
Steel Framed Walls Metal studs Are becoming more common in residential construction. Precut holes are provided for electrical and plumbing lines.
Sustainable Walls Manufacturers who create construction materials and components use ENERGY STAR and LEED criteria during the production process of their products. This practice ensures that builders will select products that will create a sustainable structure. www.usgbc.org
