Panelization is a process where walls, floors and roof sections are assembled off-site in a controlled environment with help of cold formed-steel framing. Cold formed steel along with wood and concrete masonry, are considered in the initial stage of project inception.
However; the final decision mostly narrows down to steel framing due to its attributes of lower construction cost, reduced insurance costs, non-combustibility, and above all is the requirement that the project should be LEED certified.
Panelization can shave off as much as 75% off a construction project’s field time. All that is required is the expertise to design building structures with this progressive and popular methodology of cold-formed steel shapes.
The benefits of using panelization construction include:
- Multi-purpose usage
- Enhanced Quality
- Substantial Cost Savings
- Diminishing Construction Time
- Green Building/LEED certification
