Home How Building Pros Can Incorporate Prefab and Panelized Home Techniques Into Their Projects

Building professionals are considering alternative methods to traditional on-site framing and construction for projects of all sizes - from single family residential, residential developments, multi-family and even commercial and institutional projects. This webinar will answer commonly asked questions about when it makes sense to incorporate off-site panelized construction - and explain the different types of panels available in today’s marketplace. 

The benefits of panelized construction need to be weighed against project priorities. Moreover, it is important to understand the different types of panelized building systems and their impact on your budget, schedule and quality controls, as well as their application in various architectural designs and climate zones. 

Architects, engineers, and builders are adjusting their design and construction schedules in order to incorporate panelized systems. We’ll explore how to maximize the impact and successfully incorporate off-site fabrication into your project.

Bensonwood has been looking for better ways to build homes for over 40 years. SIPS had limited applications so the company began manufacturing its own enclosure systems, patenting its own OpenBuilt system that includes a service cavity and pre-notched studs for wiring, minimizes thermal bridging, incorporates layers for vapor control and air barrier, and uses low- or no-VOC materials to maintain a healthy indoor environment.

In this webinar, Matt Risinger, Bensonwood, architects and builders come together to explore the how and why of panelized building systems and the types of projects that will benefit most from them. 

What You’ll Learn:

    • Different types of panelized systems
    • How pre-fab and panelization differs from traditional construction
    • When to incorporate this strategy
    • How contractors benefit from incorporating a building system
