• Clients Benefits:
    Speed to Market – Reduce Framing schedule by up to 50% (saving 2 weeks per level off the schedule)
    · Reduction in Project Costs – Significant reduction in onsite labor, waste and carrying cost
    · Light gauge steel is 1/4 the weight of wood – reduction in foundation concrete
    · Non – Combustible – Reduction in fire insurance up to 75% reduction per year
    · Sustainable product – 80% from recycled material and 100% of waste is recyclable = Leed Points
    · Cleaner and safer job site – No cost for scrap haul away = reduction in trash container haul off
    · Increased site mobility – Smaller crews to install, less material storage space required -Less exposure
    · Faster and more efficient for MEP – MEP penetrations and framing can be prepared in the factory
  • Financial Benefits:
    Lower initial cost – labor & materials, lower foundation cost
    · 60% of the framing labor occurs in the Factory – Factory Labor vs. Field Labor means significant reduction in labor costs
    · 75% Reduction in Course of Construction Insurance and Long-Term fire insurance
    · Cost of the removal of framing waste is eliminated
  • Speed to Market:
    Framing schedule reduce by as much as 50%
    ·Avoid weather delays
  • Panels are constructed, stacked per project sequence and in order, while the foundation is being poured and ready for installation upon concrete cure.
  • Lower Long Term operating cost:
    Energy benefits – less energy consumption
    · No settlement or movement due to shrinking unlike lumber
    · Lower insurance costs
    · Revenues are achieved faster due to the reduced construction schedule
    · Land values are optimized by the ability to utilize more building square footage on the same footprint. ABS is structurally approved for up to 11 story high construction.
  • Environmentally Superior:
    Lower energy usage can be achieved – through the use of proprietary superior insulation and tighter building envelope
    · Low carbon footprint – reduced carbon footprint in terms of resources to produce and install
    · All material is 100% recyclable
    · Contributes to LEED Certification – can contribute 8-11 LEED Points toward project certification
    · Reduces waste – factory produced – eliminates trash bin costs for framing material, land fill charges and site management cleanup
