Custom wall panels prefabricated for Vancouver Island projects
“They speed up the construction timeline in comparison to traditional stick framing." - Hadi Abassi, AEP.
Atlas Engineered Products (AEP) has expanded its availability of premanufactured wall panels for multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs) and commercial facilities on Vancouver Island.
“We have delivered the first of these panels to an office development project just south of Nanaimo, B.C.,” says Hadi Abassi, the AEP’s founder and executive vice-president (EVP) of strategic business development. “They speed up the construction timeline in comparison to traditional stick framing, because there are fewer hands involved. We have secured projects across the island, from Port Hardy to Victoria and from Tofino to Nanaimo.”
Among the other benefits of premanufactured wall panels, AEP—which continues to acquire operations in the truss and engineered products industry—cites cost savings, enhanced modelling during the design process, higher quality assurance, climate-controlled production, waste reduction, more accurate project scheduling and reduced labour requirements.
