What is Panelized Construction?

Panelized construction is the building of walls, roofs, floors and other key components offsite of the build, allowing for less waste, better fit and finish and less exposure to the elements re: building materials, prior to dry-in. It can also provide a shortened build timeline (30-50% quicker dry-in possible, based on design and material choices).
