Custom home builders, project home builders and owner builders can all achieve this. By using Precast Concrete Homes’ walls, and the most efficient building system available it can be done again and again. In fact using our fully engineered walls, and the proven system, builders have completed over 50 projects in the last three years, with every one of them being completed in 8 weeks or less.
The first 10 days
The efficiency we create means that the home can be weatherproof after just 5 days. This allows trades that would normally have to wait until lockup stage in a brick veneer home, to begin weeks earlier. Plumbers, electricians and insulation installers can all start work in the second week of construction, so that when the house is locked up, it is at a far more advanced stage than other building methods. This also removes the possibility of construction timeframe blowouts due to rain delays.
Some Lockups are better than others
As well as getting to lockup faster our lockup stage is much better. At our lockup stage the home is ready for sheeting and painting to begin as the electrical and plumbing rough ins have been completed, and the insulation and ductwork has been installed. With other construction methods these trades would be just beginning, meaning sheeting and painting are still some time away.
Now we’re cruising
From this point it is possible to complete the interior fitout while the exterior, including landscaping is completed. We have many other tips that will allow you to keep your home moving along at the fastest possible speed. As there is no waste created by bricks being laid the jobsite is also kept cleaner reducing clean up times.
How good is this?
The advantages of this high speed building has advantages for everyone.
- Owners get to move into their homes sooner.
- Builders get to complete more projects each year.
- Investors get to see a return on their investment sooner.
