Members of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Building Systems Councils are celebrating Building Systems Week from August 1 -5. This week-long event featuring social media outreach and other marketing efforts aim to educate NAHB members and consumers on the advantages of systems-built homes as opposed to traditional stick building.

Prefabricated in an efficient, controlled setting, systems built homes, which include modular, panelized, concrete, log and timber framed homes, provide homeowners a building alternative that often saves time and money.

For home builders, adopting building systems can combat many of the concerns facing today’s housing industry, most notably the cost and availability of labor. With the majority of construction taking place at the factory, systems built homes require fewer man hours to build once they are arrive on site.

Systems built homes also score high on the green-building scale as material waste is significantly reduced in the factory and job site. Assembly in an enclosed environment allows systems built homes to fulfill key components of green building certifications, including the ICC/ASHRAE 700 National Green Building Standard.

“All systems-built homes are compliant with local building codes, and the components are engineered to withstand the rigors of transportation to the site – an aspect that offers an added layer of strength and durability to the home,” said BSC Chairman Buddy Hughes, president of Hughes Construction in Lexington, NC. “BSC members have been at the forefront of new construction techniques and building technologies, which benefits the consumer.”
