Panelization allows for the building's exterior skin to be under construction, insome cases ready to install while the structure of the building is still being erected. As a result of the accelerated duration for the exterior wall installation, the building is dried in at an earlier stage. This has a positive schedule impact that benefits multiple trades.
Substantial Scaffold Reduction
Minimizing the use of scaffolding reduces significant cost, time, and safety risk throughout the construction process. Panelization is also beneficial on projects with zero lot lines and limited staging areas, such as downtown high rises.
Significant Reduction in Required Manpower
The amount of manpower required to install wall panels is significantly less than in traditional framing. As opposed to having multiple trades in the same space for framing, waterproofing, finishing, etc., only a small installation crew is required.
Manufacturing is 15 times safer then traditional construction. Building panels in a horizontal, ground level environment and installing them from a crane greatly reduces the risk involved in building off scaffolds.
