Walls are used in Production and Custom Builds.
construction is the long-term, quality alternative to typical concrete block,
wood frame and steel frame houses.
The features and benefits
of the insulated concrete form used in construction for residential
and commercial builders are as follows:
Faster to Build
Helps shave numerous construction days off a typical home building timeframe.
Fewer subcontractors are needed in this type of construction lowering labor
costs and increasing productivity with a smaller labor force.
Improved Utilization and
Operations, scheduling and administration becomes more efficient in concrete
construction with less labor and fewer subcontractors.
A home is "dried-in" when final concrete lift is complete and allows succeeding
trade work to begin quicker so an average home can be completed substantially
Built to Last
Take pride in building a product that will last 200+ years. Concrete housing is
estimated to outlast most all conventionally built structures.
Use of cast-in-place poured concrete drastically reduces construction material
waste including lumber, sheetrock, wiring, and mechanical scraps reducing
Lower Insurance Rates
Building concrete homes significantly reduces potential property damage and loss
during disasters like storms and fire. Insurance premiums during and after
construction may also be lower.
Concrete construction is low-maintenance and minimizes damages during
construction. Easy clean-up and pre-move-in prep generates quicker closings and
quicker collections. It also reduces builder warranty work after the sale.
As manufacturers continue to make refinements to their forming systems, and
develop more efficient ways to install them, the cost of a solid-concrete home
will likely drop below that of equivalent wood-frame construction.
The profit margin on a
concrete home averages 10% more than the stick built or block home.
Have the ability to
market a home that will save the end user 50 to 60% on their energy bill and be
fire and hurricane rated!
Developer and builders can work in strong partnership with Southwick on the
construction process. There are also opportunities to work together on local
and regional marketing and promotional efforts.
