Reaching a New Level of Sophistication with Panelized Construction
This article was originally published in the Construction Specifier Magazine's June 2020 issue.
Panelized construction, although used for decades, has reached a new level of sophistication and use in recent years. Construction of wall, floor, and roof systems offsite has multiple advantages, including compressing the project schedules, reducing site labor and waste, improving consistency and quality control, and increasing safety for workers. Multiple materials can be pre-panelized to provide the best efficiencies and results.
