Energy Efficiency made Simple


Design + Build Process

How Do We Fit In?

Designing and building the high performing home of your dreams is an emotional and expensive undertaking.

As your design evolves, the number of decisions about building layout and material choices can be overwhelming … particularly as you struggle to remain within budget. Don’t let “cost conscious” decisions come at the expense of realizing the levels of comfort, energy efficiency and sustainability that were always part of the dream. Instead, choose to Build SMART.

We’ll show you how to save money while keeping your dream alive. Build SMART shifts the challenge of constructing a truly high performing building envelope away from congested building sites and into our factories with greater control over material quality and the building process.

Our process gives truly high-performance builders – challenged to staff their projects with skilled labor – a huge boost in productivity, producing standardized components of the structure in our factory … you then assemble them on site. Working together, we dramatically reduce your construction cycle time and deliver higher performing, occupied structures sooner.


Coordination + Virtual Build

Our Design Team collaborates and coordinates with your Project Designer to ensure an integrated product delivery. We develop detailed shop drawings and resolve open questions about desired energy performance of your building envelope.


Once Build SMART shop drawings have been reviewed and approved by your design professional, we will procure all necessary materials, and begin fabrication of your building systems.


Your building envelope system will be shipped direct from our facility to your site with delivery arrangements made for you by Build SMART.


In addtion to a complete installation manual, Build SMART will be available for assistance and advice every step of the way.


Design + Engineering Coordination

Our in-house staff of design professionals have experience creating engineering plan approvals and shop drawings using the latest CAD and BIM Technology software.


Once Build SMART shop drawings have been reviewed and approved by your design professional, we will procure all necessary materials, and begin fabrication of your building systems.

Quality Assurance + Control

Build SMART's QA/QC program ensures each project is provided the best designed and tested building materials possible per the project specifications. This oversight guarantees consistent high quality assemblies from incoming materials to systems leaving the factory.


Research + Development

New Vertical Air Press

Equal distribution of air pressure across a steel frame plate generates 1.5psi across the surface of an E-Wall Panel, this provides several innovative benefits:

• 4.6x less pressure than what is used in the SIP’s industry • Safer, controlled process for components • Safer and repeatable process for employees.

Variety of Insulation Strategies

ZIP System R-sheathing is the simple all-in-one structural panel with built-in exterior insulation. Featuring integrated moisture, air and thermal protection, ZIP System R-sheathing completely reimagines traditional wall assemblies by streamlining exterior water, air and thermal management.

Automated Adhesive Application Process

Automating the application of adhesives to components will provide maximized quality, consistency and speed across production while also eliminating the risk of human error.

Our Values

Climate + Health

In 2019, Build SMART became an official corporate signer of the Kansas Climate + Health Declaration, an initiative to “increase awareness of the impacts of climate change on public health, to increase civic engagement on climate action in Kansas, and to advance policies that build community resilience and safeguard the future of our state.” Enduring and resilient buildings should be the rule to guide our decisions about the built environment.
