WHOLE HOUSE DESIGN
  • Offers accuracy, consistency, 3D technology, fast, efficient building and value engineering.
  • Our designers use state-of-the-art 3D technology to perfect home plans.
  • Provides faster, more accurate, higher-quality building with less waste.
  • Ensures each component and all trades work together seamlessly.
  • Intelligently engineers more value into plans so projects become more efficient and affordable.
  • Enables errors to be corrected before construction.
AUTOMATED TRUSS PLANTS
Innovative manufacturing that delivers shorter setup time, higher production and consistency, reduced crew size, reliable lead times and increased profitability.
MANUFACTURED COMPONENTS
Our manufactured components reduce framing time, material costs and waste, while increasing the structural integrity of single and multi-family projects.
Wall Panels
  • Consistent quality, fit and finish to help you reduce cost, improve efficiency and speed up the building process.
  • Labeled and shipped to jobsite with placement plans.
EWP Floor Systems
  • Value-add processing lowers install cost and reduces build time, jobsite waste and labor.
  • Automated cutting systems, like precision-end trim and precut holes, reduce errors and allow for faster assembly and lower cycle time.
Roof Trusses
  • Engineered roof trusses with all loads tracked minimize the need for interior bearing walls or support beams.
  • Rapid installation enables faster frame dry-in times.
Floor Trusses
  • Greater span capability than dimensional lumber; potential to reduce interior bearing walls.
  • 3-1/2" nailing surface for easy floor deck installation.
  • Open framing solution with space for house systems reduces the need for field modifications and back framing cost.
MILLWORK, WINDOWS & DOORS
From line-produced pre-hung doors to one-of-a-kind masterpieces, we can produce almost anything and ship it anywhere. Our technology-enabled estimating increases accuracy and expedites quote delivery time.
