Every multifamily project is designed with our BIM software by a team of designers who primarily have had extensive experience working as carpenters. Each contracted project has a salaried team assigned consisting of:

  • Project Manager
  • Lead BIM designer
  • Field Superintendent
  • Pick up foreman
  • Team production lead’s for framing, joisting and sheeting
  • All of our management and design teams are English speaking

Design Method

We use a BIM (Building Information Modeling)  environment to model and coordinate rough framing issues such as: architectural requirements vs. structural, plumbing, HVAC, and electrical.

Using BIM, up to 95% of the framing issues can be resolved. After which, we can then build the major structural framing components at our off site facility.

  • Vetting majority of the issues prior to construction.
  • Team interacts in advance during cooperation process.
  • Coordinated model is utilized in the field directly.
  • Coordination process potentially saves time on critical path and schedule.
  • Cost savings related to future CO reduction.

Framing Methods


  • BIM design & Coordination
  • Laser edge plate layout
  • Precision trim components
  • Walls manufactured on-site

Good for sites that have certain restrictions or environmental challenges.


  • BIM design & Coordination
  • Laser edge plate layout
  • Precision trim components
  • Walls manufactured off-site

Consistent layout and framing unit to unit and floor to floor. Significant time saving on critical path.

Our Process in Simple Steps

  • Pre-Construction

    We begin with the existing floor plans via CAD file or hard drawings.

  • Design & Engineering

    Site layout includes locations of wall panels as shown in project design book.

  • Laser Etched

    Lumber components are laser etched and cut to size in one operation. Tolerances are +- 1/16”, this makes for consistent units and walls throughout the project.

  • Company Trucks & Outside Haulers

    You get less site congestion, cleaner and greener worksite.

  • On-Site Assembly

    Structural components are organized and assembled on flat tables. This allows for squaring of the walls, clean tight joints and assemblies. Each crew is working off of the wall books to insure that the correct grades are in place or fire treated materials are being used only where required. Each table has a QC supervisor monitoring the work. If the wood is defective or has white mold it is culled prior to assembly and never contaminates the site.

  • Finishing

    Cost is same as a stick framed project. Project size, 100 units and up. Lead time is the key, at least 3 to 4 months prior to pre deck. Select the team, not all have a proven track record.
