Wall Panels

Annandale Millwork is embracing the energy code.

Framers and CMs can make for a powerful partnership, but it takes work.

What level, if any, of responsibility does a CM assume if the contractors on the jobsite use our layout plans to do more than just put the walls together? Specifically on the job in question, the panel layout was used to place plumbing for a kitchen island. Unfortunately, the layout had the pony wall for that island out of place by 11”. As a result, there is additional work needed to relocate the plumbing.

A framer shares how wall panels grew his business.

Bruce Jones, a turnkey contractor in Hanover, Pennsylvania, has been in the wall panel industry for over 30 years. He estimates that in 2017 his company built over 80 miles of walls. That experience has taught Bruce a number of ways to make a better panel

NFC Executive Director Chris Tatge and SBCA staff member Jim Vogt demonstrated on the BCMC show floor just how quickly a structure comes together with wall panels.

Does SBCA produce any products detailing how to market and sell roof and floor trusses to builders for whom stick framing has been the standard way of building? Products that detail the cost savings when compared to traditional stick framing?

If a new product can solve age-old building challenges, it can work anywhere—and help CMs become the go-to suppliers in their markets.

Using components to solve old challenges in new ways means time and cost savings for builders and framers—and an expanding business base for component manufacturers.
