About Prefabrication

Prefabrication is a LEAN method of MANUFACTURING the exterior building envelope and veneer in contrast to the risk laden traditional approach of conventional installation.

Key Features

Lean Process
SWS prefabrication process delivers full exterior skin and veneer vertical wall assemblies engineered to meet your budget, achieve design intent, achieve durable watertight performance and delivered months faster than conventional construction methods with significantly reduced onsite manpower and waste. 

Quality Assurance
The manufacturing process allows for and mandates 100% inspection of all water management assemblies in a controlled environment to ensure continuity, compatibility, and drainage is achieved for the building envelope.

True Schedule Savings
The wider array of value engineering options available are coupled with production in a controlled warehouse in advance of structure installation on project sites.  Quality assured weather eliminated production is followed by rapid on-site installation, requiring significantly reduced onsite manpower and access, therefore significantly cutting project costs due to schedule savings and valued engineering options.

Lightweight Assemblies
Factory-controlled and manufactured panels weigh as much as 90% less than conventional precast assemblies. 

Continuous Insulation
Enhances energy efficiency, lowers structural weight and minimizes thermal bridging.

Single Source Warranty
Panels come with five-year single source manufacturer performance guarantee.
