Fiberglass 2X4's Are Stronger Than Wood or Concrete Block

Automated Factory Construction Speeds Rebuilding

Wood, Steel And Concrete Block Construction Is Labor Intensive And More Expensive

http://www.CBS-Homes.com/

CBS Homes replaces 81,000 pounds of concrete block and steel or 21,000 pounds of wood with 1,200 pounds of Advanced Construction Composite 2x4s and assembles the parts into exterior support wall panels in a factory.  CBS trained crews erect panels as a house shell (subcontract service to builders).  The interim plant produces 30 homes each day and the large plant 300 homes each day. Any plan or building design can be made in panels up to 40 feet long.  Parts to make building shells for 9 homes can be shipped for on-site panelization and erection in one truck.

A crew of 5 transports and erects the exterior support walls with a crane and adds the roof in one day.  One 2,000 square foot house can be built in 48 minutes on the production line or in 2 hours on-site using local labor. The builder's crews then finish the interior and exterior trim using their current methods, tools, and materials. Integration of panels made with Advanced Construction Composite skeletons is seamless, convenient, and lower cost.

There are sufficient raw materials to supply the mammoth reconstruction of hurricane devastated areas and none of those raw materials is currently in the construction supply stream. Green friendly fiberglass skeleton parts are manufactured and assembled with electric boxes, windows, doors, insulation, electrical boxes and sheeting added according to the builder's requirements.

 

 

  • To build a plant producing 900 homes per month (10,800 homes per year) would employ 464 new hires in the area.
  • To build a plant producing 9,000 homes per month (108,000 homes per year) would employ 2,179 new hires in the area.
  • CBS Homes Florida, LLC would provide all the training for these new employees.
