Why Use Panelized Construction?
- Panelized construction is the most environmentally friendly method of building. New Panel buildings use very little wood, and can be designed to use virtually no wood at all. The components are 100 percent recycled or recyclable.
- Panelized homes are more energy-efficient than traditional buildings. New Panel Homes’ system produces an airtight, heavily insulated building envelope that can cut power bills in half compared to a traditional building of the same size. With the proper modifications and equipment, New Panel Homes can even build a zero-energy building that does not need any power from the grid.
- New Panel Homes’ building system has been lab-tested to withstand hurricane-force winds. The system meets or exceeds the current Florida Building Code.
- Panelized buildings can be completed faster and with less waste than traditional structures. Many building shells can be erected in one week or less. And there is no need for a dumpster at the job site.
