Bensonwood’s panelized building systems add value for developers with energy performance goals and time sensitive schedules

Multifamily Developments

Multifamily developments are an important part of the solution for regions with housing shortages. Bensonwood’s panelized building systems add value for developers with energy performance goals and time sensitive schedules. The panelized approach to building multi-family projects means that weather-tight shells can be assembled quickly with minimal impact to the abutting properties.

Project One

Environmentally Constrained Site

A developer planned to build a 16-unit, 17,000 SF townhome project on a constrained site near environmentally sensitive waterways. The planning board would not approve the project because of the inability to address site challenges and provide accurate schedule and budget information.

Bensonwood’s panelized building system offered early and accurate cost information and reduced the amount of time that would be needed on site. Because the system incorporates the scopes of many sub-trades in the factory setting, rather than on site, there is improved control over schedule, quality and cost information.

Fabrication details: The completed, weather-tight shell was assembled in under two months. The blower door tests revealed air tightness performance near Passive House Levels.

Products Used:

  • OB Plus R-35 walls with dense-pack cellulose insulation
  • R-60/16" I-joist roof with dense-pack cellulose insulation
  • Factory-installed window units
  • Floor systems
  • Interior load-bearing partitions
  • Carpet-grade stairs

Project Two

Cost, Schedule, and Budget Control

The site for the 16-unit 25,000 SF project required demolition and remediation prior to construction. The developer needed to be able to mobilize on the project site as soon as permitting issues were addressed.

Since the panelized building system is built off-site as components, the majority of construction could be completed before any activity commenced on-site. In addition, the system incorporates the scopes of many sub-trades, including windows and doors, in the factory setting so control over schedule, quality and cost information is improved.

Fabrication details: The three story multi-family building was built in phases so that the owner could phase-in the finish sub-trades and begin marketing and selling units faster.

Products Used:

  • OB Plus R-35 walls with dense-pack cellulose insulation
  • R-60/18" I-joist roof with dense-pack cellulose insulation
  • Factory-installed window units
  • Floor systems
  • Interior load-bearing partitions
