Building Up – With AG Wall Systems
Who says energy-efficient Superior Walls precast wall panels are just for use below the ground?
With 35 years of experience in insulated precast concrete wall system, Superior Walls also offers energy efficient wall systems designed for use in above grade applications. The AG Wall Systems allow builders to use the panels in stacked applications to create multiple stories when building homes or commercial buildings.
“Superior Walls precast concrete wall panels are a fast, efficient way to construct a home or commercial project,” says Jim Costello, president of Superior Walls. “Our AG Wall Systems provide an energy-efficient way to construct an entire building from the ground up.”
Superior Walls introduced AG Wall Systems to bring the strength and energy efficiency typically found in Superior Walls precast concrete foundation systems to above grade building applications. AG wall systems are pre-engineered at Superior Walls facilities and custom manufactured for the specific needs of a project. The walls are delivered to the job site and installed within hours of arrival.
Each Superior Walls panel is custom made to the specifications of an individual project, including built-in openings for windows and doors. Pre-engineered access for wiring or small plumbing elements along with smart stud facing for easy drywall installation are included and help speed up the construction process.
“A conventional wall structure with block and wood framing can take weeks to create,” says Costello. “When using AG Wall Systems, you can achieve that same framing in just hours on the job site with many energy-efficiency benefits.”
AG Wall Systems have already been used in numerous projects, including the creation of a high school, a yoga center, shopping centers and a wide variety of homes.
