Entreka prefab panels

ENTEKRA

LP recently invested in this manufacturer, which provides prefabricated wall panels, floor panels, and roof trusses.

Entekra says its system reduces the overall build cycle by up to 33 percent versus stick framing and reduces the need for on-site skilled labor by 40 to 60 percent.
