“It’s one of the most rewarding experiences of my career,” says David Carolan, Founder and CEO of Solid Green Companies, describing his company’s participation in the rebuilding of several homes after the forest fires that devastated Bastrop, Texas, in September 2011, destroying 67 homes. “I’m happy we could step in and quickly help with the rebuilding process. Thanks to our unique wall and roof system we were able to rebuild several homes is just 60 days.”
American Builders Quarterly reported on this story, sharing details of how such a fast build of quality homes was possible, including the ability to get the wall and roof system ready to install in record time. The system allows builders to construct homes and offices approximately 25 percent faster by reducing the work it takes to prepare walls.
As David explains in the article: “From a builder’s perspective, it’s a lot like getting a truss package. You send us the plans and order the system so it hits the jobsite just after the foundation is complete, then you unbundle it and get to work.”
The article also mentions that the wall and roof system is not just appropriate in natural disaster situations, but also in typical building situations — such as homes for oil company workers in Eagle Ford Formation, Texas. “We were able to build the four multiunit apartment buildings the company needed to house its workers in less than 75 days,” said David. “This helped the company keep their project running, with no down time.”
