Prefabricated and finished exterior wall panels are a cutting edge approach to exterior wall construction for both new commercial buildings and renovation projects to provide an updated aesthetic on a building’s exterior.

Cost Savings

Exterior wall panels are a cost effective way to create beautiful, unique exterior motifs to make your construction project stand out from the surrounding buildings. When wall panels are incorporated into the initial design, your project’s budget shrinks without sacrificing quality.

Fewer Delays and Shortened Schedule

Wall panel manufacturing takes place indoors, eliminating potential weather delays. When you choose to use this material, it can fast-track your construction project, accelerating your building envelope installation by 80%.

With a panelized wall system, job site overhead is reduced by weeks or even months. This includes time savings and cost savings for job trailers, equipment, project management, and other expenses.
