Hybrid-FRAME®:

BUILD 10-12% FASTER WITH THE SAME CREW

Hybrid-FRAME® efficiencies translate into optimized builds up to 12% faster than stick-frame construction with the same crew. (Results may vary by market). Build more projects in less time!

MORE ACCURATE TAKEOFFS

With Hybrid-FRAME®, your plan goes through our full design to optimize material usage, and identify potential plan errors that could result in material misuse and waste.  This will give you less variation in suppliers and allow you to narrow down your supplier selection to quality  and price instead of quantity variances.

BUILD GREENER, CLEANER, AND SAFER

Hybrid-FRAME® precision pre-cut and labeled bundles equal fewer cuts and less waste, resulting in reduced disposal fees up to 50%.  Hybrid-FRAME® promotes an organized, safe and clean jobsite.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT MAKES THIS DIFFERENT THAN A STICK FRAME PROJECT?  IS THIS A PANEL PACKAGE?

What makes Hybrid-FRAME® packages so special is that it is designed thoroughly like a panel package but is fully assembled in the field.  This allows for all the benefits without the big ticket cost.  This is why we call it Hybrid-FRAME®.  The Hybrid-FRAME® packages should split the difference in cost between sticks and panels and should split the difference in time savings.  Examples, if a panel package cost 10% more than stick - the Hybrid-FRAME® package will cost 5%.  If a panel package will save you 10 days than stick - the Hybrid-FRAME® package will save you 5 days.  But besides the savings, you still get all the benefits of waste control, estimating accuracy, and labor controls.

WILL I SAVE MONEY IF I GO TO A Hybrid-FRAME® PACKAGE?

YES! Our Hybrid-FRAME® package is pre-cut, labeled and bundled to optimize efficient use of materials and labor.  You can frame in less time with less labor and less waste.  (Actual savings will vary by crew.  A+ crews will see significant savings)

WILL I NEED MORE SUPERVISION TO PROPERLY USE Hybrid-FRAME® PACKAGES?

NO!  Hybrid-FRAME® packages require less supervision in the field, and the organization of the deliveries create a neat and more orderly jobsite.  At the beginning of the job, the crew leader will get a packet which shows each piece in each wall for simple construction.  And if necessary, one of our team members will come onsite to answer any and all questions.

WILL MY FRAMER CHARGE ME MORE FOR USING A COMPLICATED TECHNICAL PROCESS LIKE THIS?

NO! Framers love our Hybrid-FRAME® pre-cut lumber because it helps them do a better, cleaner, quicker job. And it’s safer too with less cutting.  Time is lost in transitioning from one section of the building to another.  This will cut down on the transition time.

DO THE CONSTRUCTION PLANS NEED TO BE PERFECT IF I USE Hybrid-FRAME® PACKAGES?

NO! We frequently discover and correct architectural plan errors while going through the design process.  We will submit a design packet for approval prior to work starting.
