What is Panelization?

Panelization is a way of designing buildings with prefabricated wall panels to provide unique exterior finishes that are visually appealing and durable.

What are the finish options?

1. Thin Set –

There are two ways to manipulate the thin set method: structural silicone and conventional latex mortars. The best approach will be chosen to accommodate you and your structure. There are many finishes available by using the thin set method: ceramic tiles, thin stone, brick, and a wide range of manmade veneers.

2. Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete (GFRC) –

GFRC combined with structural steel stud framing has demonstrated to be one of the most flexible exterior wall systems. A large variety of finishes and shapes are available using this method. Colors, textures, aggregates and other materials can all be utilized to transform your structure into one that best incorporates your ideas and vision. GFRG can be manufactured into specific shapes, finishes, and sizes. Most commonly used for column covers and corner molding.
