The Future of Energy-Efficient Homes: Embracing Panelized Construction
September 7, 2023
In the ever-evolving landscape of construction, innovative solutions are continually reshaping the industry. Today, we invite you to explore an exciting advancement in the world of architecture and construction - panelized construction. The exploration is inspired by CertainTeed, who recently shared their insights on this transformative approach in a blog post. Dive into the future of construction and the remarkable potential of panelized building methods.
Is There a Better Way to Build?
In the face of labor shortages, supply chain disruptions, and the ever-growing demand for energy-efficient homes, the construction industry is facing unprecedented challenges. But what if we told you there's a way to overcome these obstacles while simultaneously improving quality and efficiency? The answer lies in panelized construction.
Panelized construction is a groundbreaking method that involves manufacturing building components in a controlled environment before transporting them to the construction site for assembly. This innovative approach streamlines construction, optimizes labor and materials, reduces waste, and ensures superior quality control. It's a game-changer for builders looking to stay ahead in today's rapidly evolving construction landscape.
What Is Panelized Construction?
Panelized construction encompasses more than just framing and sheathing. CertainTeed's ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES takes this concept to the next level by including windows, doors, siding, roofing, insulation, water and moisture barriers, and finishes. The result? A fully insulated, weather-tight, and sided home can be completed in as little as one day, ready for MEPs (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) and interior fit-out.
The Benefits of a Controlled Environment
Manufacturing panels in a controlled environment offers numerous advantages. Skilled workers can focus on precision and detail, resulting in panels that are more accurate and consistent than those constructed on-site. Standardized production processes help identify and rectify design flaws or construction errors early on, reducing costly rework.
Quick and Simple Onsite Assembly
Assembly on-site becomes a breeze with panelized construction, especially with solutions like ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES. Panels are pre-engineered to fit together seamlessly, minimizing the need for extensive on-site construction work. This not only accelerates project timelines but also reduces disruption to nearby communities.
Build More, Waste Less
Panelized construction significantly reduces material waste compared to traditional construction methods. The precise measurements and pre-engineering offered by ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES help minimize waste generation, aligning with modern sustainability goals.
The Future of Single-Family Construction Is Here
At CertainTeed, their full-service panelized solution empowers residential builders and developers to create beautiful, durable, and energy-efficient homes efficiently. ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES are designed for the future, making future renovations and finish changes easy while reducing maintenance over generations. Plus, with comprehensive support, expertise, and industry-leading warranties from CertainTeed, builders can have peace of mind throughout the construction process.
