Flat Packed, Modular & Prefabricated Construction

SOL HAUS DESIGN is collaborating with a local supplier for structural insulated panels (SIPS) for the prefabricated panelized system. With a manufacturing warehouse in Sacramento, California, they can produce wall and roof sections with less waste, high energy efficiency and a much faster and efficient time frame for construction. This eliminates construction waste typically found in traditional on-site or “stick-built” construction. Also, the controlled environment in a warehouse allows for building without the challenges of weather, thereby reducing the construction schedule.

When wall panels are completed (insulation and framing included), the panels are stacked on a flat bed truck. They are shipped to the jobsite ready to be installed on the foundation, thereby reducing construction time dramatically.
