Waste

Infographic

This project overview graphic provides a quick visual representation of the labor, waste and material savings of using components, based on findings from the 2015 Framing the American Dream study.

Presentation

This presentation provides a brief overview of what SBCA has learned from both the 1995 and 2015 Framing the American Dream projects. Use this material to give your audience the basic idea of the savings they can realize – in labor and materials –  by using structural building components.

Social Media

Using structural building components provide a positive environmental and economic benefit to the building process. Get that message out to your networks in this concise social media campaign: Create Less Waste.

The Framing the American Dream study shows that a stick-framed house creates nearly 30 times more jobsite waste than a component-framed house.

Using Components creates 30x less waste
Video

This time-lapse video provides a side-by-side comparison of two identical homes being framed. The only difference between them is the house on the left was stick-framed on site, while the house on the right was framed using floor trusses, wall panels and roof trusses.  The video provides clear proof that structural components are the better way to frame.

Waste: 15 cubic yards (stick), 1/2 cubic yard (component)
Infographic

In each Framing the American Dream study, two identical buildings were framed, providing an apples-to-apples comparison of stick and component framing methods. This infographic focuses on what we learned in each area by the numbers.

This project overview graphic provides  a quick visual representation of the time, labor and waste benefits of using components as well as a more in-depth look into the specific savings in each area based on both the 1995 and 2015 Framing the American Dream studies. This full-page infographic is great to use as a leave-behind with customers or presentation attendees to illustrate the full benefits of framing with components.
