Clients Benefits

ABS Benefits

  • Client Benefits:
     Speed to Market – Reduce Framing schedule by up to 50% (saving 2 weeks per level off the schedule)
     Reduction in Project Costs – Significant reduction in onsite labor, waste and carrying cost
     Light gauge steel is 1/4 the weight of wood – reduction in foundation concrete
     Non – Combustible – Reduction in fire insurance up to 75% reduction per year
     Sustainable product – 80% from recycled material and 100% of waste is recyclable = Leed Points
     Cleaner and safer job site – No cost for scrap haul away = reduction in trash container haul off
     Increased site mobility – Smaller crews to install, less material storage space required -Less exposure
     Faster and more efficient for MEP – MEP penetrations and framing can be prepared in the factory
  • Financial Benefits:
     Lower initial cost – labor & materials, lower foundation cost
     60% of the framing labor occurs in the Factory – Factory Labor vs. Field Labor means significant reduction in labor costs
     75% Reduction in Course of Construction Insurance and Long Term fire insurance
     Cost of the removal of framing waste is eliminated
  • Speed to Market:
     Framing schedule reduce by as much as 50%
    Avoid weather delays
  •  Panels are constructed, stacked per project sequence and in order, while the foundation is being poured and ready for installation upon concrete cure.
  • Lower Long Term operating cost:
     Energy benefits – less energy consumption
     No settlement or movement due to shrinking unlike lumber
     Lower insurance costs
     Revenues are achieved faster due to the reduced construction schedule
     Land values are optimized by the ability to utilize more building square footage on the same footprint. ABS is structurally approved for up to 11 story high construction.
  • Environmentally Superior:
     Lower energy usage can be achieved – through the use of proprietary superior insulation and tighter building envelope
     Low carbon footprint – reduced carbon footprint in terms of resources to produce and install
     All material is 100% recyclable
     Contributes to LEED Certification – can contribute 8-11 LEED Points toward project certification
     Reduces waste – factory produced – eliminates trash bin costs for framing material, land fill charges and site management cleanup
     Minimizes physical impact on building site – reduces storage and required staging areas
  • Durability:
     Seismically superior, as much as 5 times more than comparable wood construction
     Longer life cycle than wood
     Mold, fungus and termite free
     Rated Non-Combustible building material
     Constructed to meet category 4 hurricane standards and seismic zone 4 standards.
  • Code Compliance:
     2006 IBC
     ICC
     2006 IRC
     Meets all AISI, ASTM, ANSI and SSMA standards
