Click through the tabs below to see how we accelerate construction using prefabricate elements, prefabricated medical headwalls, prefabricated corridor rack walls and prefabricated interior and exterior wall systems.
The KHS&S prefabricated exterior wall panel system offers a quick, efficient and durable alternative to the traditional enclosure of your project.
The largest Dryvit installer in the United States, KHS&S has installed prefabricated exterior wall panels for more than a decade.
Our project team develops complete shop drawings to ensure your panel system meets your project requirements and fits exactly as intended to eliminate costly delays, job site hassles and structural concerns.
Although most of the panels we install are EIFS, KHS&S can construct prefabricated panels out of a variety of materials, including GFRC and brick veneers.
KHS&S evaluates and reviews each project to establish opportunities for Large-Scale Element prefabrication. Building large-scale prefabricated elements, requires detailed coordination to ensure that these elements properly coordinate on the jobsite with all the other trades. For this reason, coordination with on-site construction activities is crucial. KHS&S utilizes building information modeling (BIM) in aiding installation and creating these large scale elements. By utilizing Large-Scale prefabricated elements, KHS&S is able to have a “Just-In-Time” delivery to the site.
KHS&S prefabricated repeat building components can help accelerate the construction schedule, improve quality, control costs and reduce job site waste. Prefabricating building components off site, helps eliminate the hassles and headaches of punch lists, rework and crowded job sites. KHS&S has more than a decade of experience in prefabrication.
Using lean construction, KHS&S has revolutionized the way large rockwork projects are designed, fabricated and installed with its proprietary Rockwork Panelization System. It’s a high-tech solution to a time-consuming, labor-intensive building process.
KHS&S’ Water Feature and Rockwork Technology Group has spent years perfecting a system that integrates all phases of design, fabrication and installation into a lean process. Using scanning and proprietary software, KHS&S creates digital representations of original rockwork designs. Data is then manipulated and broken down into sections to create individual building panels, which are then fabricated to exact dimensions, labeled and sent to the job site and installed. The result is precise and consistent replication of the original design.
Saving time and reducing costly delays are two major reasons why KHS&S has become a trusted source for taking advantage of techniques that are in demand by the industry. Expertise in prefabricated interior walls means KHS&S is confident we can deliver on all fronts utilizing this approach.
At Bellevue Marriott, KHS&S installed nearly 2,800 interior wall panels for the 20-story, 384-room hotel Bellevue Marriott. The 8-foot, six-inch panels for this $60-million project include top tracks, bottom tracks, R/C and studs. A jig table was used to assemble each wall panel, with each panel taking about six (6) minutes to assemble.
Pre-engineered and prefabricated systems substantially reduce framing time, allowing other trades to get on the job more quickly and faster completion of your project.
KHS&S offers a design-to-installation, engineered wall, floor and truss system produced off site and shipped to the job site. Our system offers quality control benefits, such as improved precision and fabrication in a controlled environment. Plus, our 3D modeling lets us identify design and building issues before your project breaks ground.
Our load-bearing steel framing system helped KHS&S shave six months off the original 20-month schedule at Poly Canyon Village at Cal Poly University, where we installed 11,000 prefabricated load-bearing wall panels.
Using BIM in concert with the MEP contractor and electrician, KHS&S can prefabricate corridor racks, expediting construction of these time-intensive building components. KHS&S develops the framing plan and fabricates the frame off-site. Once MEP contractors complete their work scopes, the wall assembly is attached to the frame and the completed prefab corridor rack is transported to the hospital, where it is installed.
Prefabricated medical headwall units integrate essential services, such as medical gases and communication and electrical devices, into one unit.
KHS&S’ prefab headwall units are delivered pre-piped and pre-wired, reducing the costs of plumbing and electrical installation. KHS&S will work with your project team to develop customized framing plans for headwall units that fit your stringent requirements. KHS&S then oversees the fabrication process in a highly controlled environment and installs the framed openings for the units on-site. Once the headwalls are fabricated, KHS&S can quickly install them, moving the project even closer to completion.
