Every building is an engineered structure. The moment a nail is driven into two boards, load transfers from one board to the other, so designing and engineering all structures is important. A house using components is fully engineered.
Each component is designed specifically for your building.
Each component locations is defined, making components easy to use in the field.
All the loads go where they belong. You won't have uneven floors, or windows and doors that don't close properly - no surprises!
Engineering with computer software makes craftsmanship easy with components, and gives you design flexibility.
CRAFTSMANSHIP THROUGH MANUFACTURING
A manufacturing facility creates quality components, often starting with computer-controlled saws, which make accurate compound cuts simple. All component joints fit together tightly in precision jigs. Manufacturing can also be computer-controlled, for faster setup times and efficient production.
Weather is not a factor. Production can continue day and night, providing consistent quality.
Material shortage delays are less likely, since the entire system is supplied in one package.
Callbacks are reduced. Components made with dry lumber are less likely to shrink, warp and twist.
Components are rarely stolen from the job site.
