At BuildSMART, we believe that higher expectations for building performance, durability, and occupant health make building today more challenging than ever before. Take for example the 2000 IBC, which increased the possibilities for wood construction by (among other things) officially recognizing additional fire protection strategies for wood frame buildings.
As the IBC continues to evolve over the years, it’s not only smart to keep pace with advancements in building systems, materials, and construction practices but necessary to continue to meet the standards for public health and wellbeing.
BuildSMART continues to achieve higher levels of safety and performance in wood-frame construction. It’s Building Enclosure System is precision-crafted from LSL Structural framing to provide easy connections and zero differential shrinkage. BuildSMART’s 1-hour Fire Rated Enclosure System is applicable in Multifamily, Senior Living and Mid-Rise Hospitality buildings when the code requires fire resistant exterior walls.
Every BuildSMART project is custom produced to meet code requirements, architectural design goals and performance goals like Passive House and DOE’s Zero Energy Ready.
BuildSMART’s ever evolving suite of high-performance wall panels is the solution to maximize tenant and public safety, comfort, health and wellbeing all the while remaining a cost and energy efficient solution to developers.
Already known for our high-performance wall panel systems, which are featured in an award winning Zero Energy multifamily structure, BuildSMART’s fire rated panels are a continuation of the commitment to energy and cost efficiency.
