We are dedicated to providing a cost effective, high-quality framing solution to every building
project that meets or exceeds our customers’ expectations. We do this with a healthy respect for
the environment and for our employees. We combine leading–edge, green solutions with state-of-the-art
technology to optimize each project. Our patented, technology-driven process for manufacturing
pre-engineered, light gauge steel panels is geared entirely towards delivering framing, on time,
on budget and with respect for our ever decreasing natural resources.
Our framing system is based on Genesis® technologies, a well-proven system which has produced
thousands of square feet of building over many years. The framing that we produce for
the West Coast market has many innovative features, including all-screw connections and the use of
in-line framing to optimize the use of steel.
Prefabricated Wall Panels
We design and manufacture exterior and interior
load-bearing and non-load-bearing wall panels for all building types. We do not rely on standard or
modular sizes. All panels are uniquely designed for the specific building project taking into account:
transportation, weight, ease of assembly on site and the preferences of the General Contractor and Framer.
We roll our own studs and tracks, typically in 16 gauge (54mm), and 18 gauge (45mm) galvanized material.
Panels can be almost any transportable size. We typically prefer 8ft or 10ft wide panels which can be up
to 27ft high. Sloping headers and other non-standard shapes are readily accommodated by our software.
We manufacture to very high tolerances, typically +0 – 1/8.” All panels are quality-tested before shipping
and we label and bar-code every panel for quality control and easy identification.
Our panels are FAR quicker to install than traditional on-site stick framing and can produce substantial
cost-savings in total construction costs and schedule compression.
We are a licensee of Trusteel® Roof Trusses
which are manufactured in our Rohnert Park factory to meet the unique design requirements of each project.
We welcome the opportunity to add
value to our steel panels by adding sheathing in the factory. This provides additional
stability for the panels during transit and can further increase the speed of erection.
In some cases, we are able to eliminate the need for scaffolding by applying sheathing in
the factory, with further substantial cost savings.
Beyond sheathing, we are able to offer to install windows, waterproofing and exterior finishes
through our in-house alliance with M4 Homes.
Rapid Deployment Structures
We focus on providing the most durable, safest and sustainable steel
structure shelters for emergency housing. Our staff has experience providing shelters both
domestically and internationally, including providing emergency housing for the earthquake
survivors in Kobe, Japan in 1994.
