Improved Production Methods

Guess which system is more efficient?

A variety of factories deliver components to the site for fast assembly. Homebuyers get exactly the products they want and none they don't. They arrive exactly when they're needed. Best of all, everything fits, because the homebuilding industry has adopted a standard measurement system that harmonizes building components and connections.

The result: building gets easier and more efficient. Like building blocks, the pieces snap together -- no matter how many factories supply the components. What does this mean for homebuyers? More choice at lower cost. And a lot less waste heading for landfills. It's good for the environment and the buyer's bottom line.
