PASS Systems - Building a leaner framing process
The construction industry is growing rapidly, which can make finding high quality trade contractors a challenge. This is especially true for framing labor, which is dwindling and expected to worsen in the future. To overcome this challenge and continue to provide consistent, high quality framing for our projects, WEAVERCOOKE is developing the PASS (Pre-Assembled Structural System) for framing multi-family apartments. The PASS system is a hybrid approach where fabricated wood-frame modules are built in our off-site shop and then transported to the jobsite for installation. These pre-assembled structures can be higher quality than framing built on-site because they are built in consistent, controlled conditions. They can also eliminate waste; as much as 30% less job site waste and 60% fewer labor hours required compared to traditional framing can be expected. The PASS system is part of WEAVERCOOKE’s dedication to Lean Construction – which prioritizes the elimination of waste throughout construction. Elimination of waste from the process coupled with reduced speed to market can create project cost savings.
