Affordable Housing has a market price the General Contractor must meet.
A Whole-House STELLAR Building System has been designed to meet this goal. A Whole-House delivery package from the STELLAR plant includes all the structural components (floors, walls and roof) and partition wall framing for load-bearing and light partition walls.
Partition wall framing can be thickness-adjusted to local door frame sizes -- thus, saving in costs.
In addition, the delivery includes resilient channels for ceiling and hat channels for roof battens -- and for any furring and bracing needs. STELLAR delivers system brackets or provides designs to be produced in the fabrication shop at the plant. Most of the connections at the building site are bolt-fitted. Installation is easy and fast -- with very little training required for installation crews at new building locations.
Calculating plant-based direct costs
Installation costs at the Building Site
Installation costs use common European (productivity) rates and must be localized considering efficiencies that are possible to achieve. The sample calculation uses 50% localized efficiency. Crew and crane costs must be localized.
The project may be able to use PEIKKO's TENLOC, quick installation camlocks. See the Partner page for more details.
STELLAR earthquake design uses welded mesh loops at vertical joints and the joining space is filled with grout after the panel installation.
