Streamline the construction process and installation time to allow other trades to mobilize on site faster and more efficiently.

The NFS Solution:

This was our first exterior framing project. As soon as the foundation was ready, the exterior walls were panelized. The interior walls were framed 10’ up so the electrician and plumber could start sooner. The duct work was allowed to go right in and then the wall panels were extended to the deck. Instead of cutting out holes for the duct work after the walls were installed, we built around it. We then were able to design service holes for the electrician and plumber as well. Nothing was slowed down. Installation of exterior walls was completed in four days compared to three weeks with conventional metal framing.
