The Big Offsite Construction Boom Calls for Innovative Products
It doesn’t take long after putting pen to paper to conclude that panelization is a contractor’s ally. Savvy contractors are shifting production to the factory – taking workers off scaffolding into a controlled environment, eliminating weather-related scheduling chaos, and infusing efficiency by moving tasks to an indoor work bench.
Georgia-Pacific is supporting the prefab revolution with DensElement® Barrier System. Thanks to proprietary AquaKor™ Technology, a hydrophobic, monolithic surface is created that blocks bulk water while retaining vapor permeability. No separate Water-Resistive and Air Barrier (WRB-AB) is needed, and the only onsite finish work is treating the vertical seams between panels.
Read our in-depth case study to find out how DensElement® Barrier System was instrumental in helping Canam Group Inc. reduce onsite labor and deliver their panelized Les Diplomates 3 apartment building envelope on time – even during a harsh Canadian winter.
