Kansas City’s housing market is growing, and fast: residential building permits climbed 32.23% this year. As the Kansas City market blooms and lumber prices shift, the common concern in the building materials and construction industry is getting projects done on time with efficiency and high quality. This brings us to manufactured components, a growing trend for builders to move away from the traditional on-site building process and towards precision manufacturing for a faster, safer, and greener product.
Benefits of Using Components
Manufactured components are all the rage right now in the building materials industry, and for good reason. Here are countless benefits to choosing manufactured components for your wood truss projects.
In a fast-growing market like Kansas City, building efficiently has never been more important. When you build offsite, you refine your building process by doing it the same way every time. This ultimately decreases errors and increases efficiency. What’s better than saving time and labor and delivering a high-quality product on time?
If you work in the building materials industry, you know that many laborers will have a jobsite accident or two. With offsite manufacturing, you can minimize accidents and keep your employees safer
Manufactured components keep your jobsite safer by:
- Eliminating bad weather and visibility. Weather in Kansas City can tough on both workers and products. Limit the wear and tear of your components with offsite manufacturing.
- Less equipment accidents and falls. With feet on the ground and heavy machinery bolted down in a familiar environment, it is less likely to have any falls or accidents for employees.
All these factors minimize risk for your jobsite and employees, putting safety first by building in a more controlled environment.
Did you know that traditional stick framing a house produces 30 times more jobsite waste than using prefabricated components? In a world where greener is better, manufactured components are key for building to minimize waste and maximize efficiency.
Less Labor & Training
Another common problem in today’s LBM industry is the labor pool. Luckily, manufactured components require less labor and less training. According to the Steel Construction Institute, a four-story development built with manufactured components could require up to 75% less labor than that of traditional stick building. Who doesn’t love to save money and time on training and labor?
Offsite manufacturing also helps make more precise cuts and higher accuracy than traditional stick framing. At Premier Building Supply, we use 3D-modeling during the planning phase and top-of-the-line automated machinery cuts to ensure greater precision for prefabricated component projects.
If you’ve ever lived or worked somewhere near a jobsite, you know that hearing constant construction work can be very disruptive. Whether the noise wakes your kids or prevents you from doing your work, the process of building is long, busy, and noisy. With offsite manufacturing, you can limit public disruption for your community.
