BamCore’s panelized exterior walls can be assembled extremely quickly saving labor and time.
Electrical and plumbing rough installation proceeds and is finished much faster when building with BamCore’s Stud-less Prime Wall System.
Compared to other industries, the building industry has seen only negligible gains in productivity or efficiency for many decades according to a report by McKinsey Global Institute. Using BamCore Prime Wall System can save time and money during the construction process. Because the panels in the BamCore Prime Wall System are delivered to the job numbered and pre-cut for every door, window, switch and an outlet opening, considerable time can be saved in the construction of the wall. Once the bottom plate is laid, individual 4’ wide panels are simply placed into position according to the number printed on them and nailed together. There is little or no job site cutting needed of the Prime Panels. This saves time and reduces waste.
Because our wall system has a stud-less void between the two runs of panels, subcontractors handling electrical, plumbing, security and media can be more efficient installing their initial rough wiring, plumbing, and cabling. Later, once the walls are closed, if an additional electric line is needed, an electrician can remove the box or outlet, use the existing line to pull a new wire to the source location and then bring both back to the switch or outlet, all without the interference of studs in the wall cavity. The most challenging part of the rough installation is when an electrician or plumber wants to install laterally around a corner. In stud-based walls, heavy coring of the corner posts is required and still requires fishing through the tight right angle. In the BamCore exterior and interior wall systems, there are usually no studs in the corners, making the lateral install much simpler. Once rough construction is complete, finish work like hanging cabinetry, trim, or appliances is a breeze. Because the entire wall is structurally a rigid panel, you don’t have to search for studs when hanging trim, cabinetry, mirrors or other heavy items. Also, because the panel surface is extremely flat, less time can be spent scribing the back edge of a cabinet or counter-top to the wall.
