STOPANELS PREFAB

StoPanels are a lightweight prefabricated exterior wall panel that gets craned into place once the exterior steel and concrete are in place. Built off-site in certified manufacturing facilities, the panels come with the studs, sheathing, air barrier, insulation board, and an assortment of finishes already assembled. Depending on the wishes of the owner, they can come in a variety of finishes such as EIFS, metal panel, fiber cement, masonry, and precast finishes (and can even come with windows already installed). Once in place on the structure, the rest of the trades are released to begin constructing the interior of the building as the exterior is now complete and safe from the elements. In addition to being expertly crafted in a controlled environment, StoPanels ensure that new buildings and additions are completed in a fraction of the time.

Light weight, durable and fire resistant, load bearing cold formed steel structures can save you time and money when constructing hotels, apartments and other commercial facilities.​

Factory built offsite to exacting standards let us help you accelerate your schedule and maximize the value of your next project.

Load Bearing Panels

Our Prefabricated Load Bearing cold-formed steel wall panels are comprised of axial and lateral bearing members, framed openings, shear walls, exterior sheathing, posts, floor systems, etc. Our load-bearing panels can be combined with most exterior envelope options, windows and door blocking, and more. Benefits of prefabrication include improved quality control, a reduction in on-site labor, limited susceptibility to inclement weather, and a significantly accelerated construction schedule.

The completed exterior panels allow the building to become weather tight much faster which prevents unnecessary weather damage to the building, reduces scaffolding cost, and expedites the MEP rough-in schedule. Other advantages come in the form of safety outcomes and quality of the finish due to the skilled tradesmen working at ground level as opposed to in a lift or scaffolding that can present a series of challenges.

THE PROCESS

1. Early Involvement

Early involvement begins with a feasibility review of the project. We will review the project model and assess for prefabrication opportunities.

2. Early Review

After review, panel breaks can be created and further analysis takes place to decide on the proper support, dimensions, and details.

3. Panel Creation

CFMF shop drawings are incorporated, fabrication tickets are created, trailer load schedules are built, and in-house fabrication occurs priors to shipment and panel installation.

4. Installation

Panels are loaded on trailers and shipped to the jobsite for in time delivery. Panels are set in place and the TCM team installs.
