Door Hanging & Window Framing

Because all the sandwich panels are installed plumb-line true, hanging doors and window framing takes just minutes. All the door hardware and window styles are specified by your architect, we provide the materials and design the sandwich panels to accept the door and windows.

Roofing Above Sandwich Panels

Once the walls are erected we add a ring beam that reinforces the structural integrity of the whole. On top of the ring beam we attach the A-beam and purline, further enhancing the structural integrity against the forces of wind and earthquake.
