Last month, CertainTeed, a North American manufacturer of sustainable building materials, announced the expansion of its prefabricated construction solutions with the launch of ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES™ (OPA): fully-constructed wall, floor, ceiling, and roof panels.

As the first building products manufacturer in the United States to offer prefabricated assemblies for residential construction, CertainTeed is helping builders complete more homes faster with less risk on the jobsite. ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES will roll out this year in the Northeast, Midwest, and Mid-Atlantic regions, with plans to expand to other U.S. markets in the near future.

Using the latest advances in building science and prefabrication, CertainTeed developed these assemblies to meet the needs of builders and developers wanting to build higher-performing homes, faster. Prefabricated using best-in-class structural systems, insulation, windows, doors, weatherproofing, and finishes all designed to work together, these fully-constructed building panels are precision-built in a controlled environment for precise quality assurance, adherence to design, and minimal waste. The higher quality combined with the latest advances in energy and moisture simulation translates to better performing, more durable homes, while significantly increasing jobsite speed and safety.

“With our wide portfolio of building solutions and deep building science expertise, CertainTeed is uniquely positioned to bring exceptional value, performance, and simplicity to the construction industry,” said Dennis Michaud, Director CertainTeed Platforms and managing director of CertainTeed Offsite Solutions. “We’ve seen a real need for a product like this, and now we're nearly eliminating the challenges related to diverse, evolving codes and customer expectations around speed, sustainability, and safety.”


This launch marks a pivotal expansion of CertainTeed's suite of building solutions and is a prime example of how the company is making good on its promise to “make the world a better home.” With all panels customized to the builder’s design and typically exceeding local building codes, it is easier and more cost effective than ever to achieve industry-leading quality, productivity, and sustainability.

“We are confident that OPA will play a major role in construction as it offers a way to address current sustainability needs and provides a solution to the ongoing housing and labor shortage," adds Michaud. "With CertainTeed’s solution-minded strategy, market-leading portfolio, deep building expertise, and phenomenal partners and customers, we have all of the ingredients to bring a significant, positive change to the construction industry.”

ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES are engineered to meet local building codes and the requirements of various energy and sustainability certifications, typically consuming less than half the energy of other new homes. While lead times vary, in-factory production is usually less than a week, with on-site installation of the wall panels in less than three days. The result is a watertight, high-performance home ready for final builder customization to the desires of their local market and customers. 

"We have listened to the needs of builders and developers asking for solutions bringing simplicity and speed,” said Mark Rayfield, CEO of CertainTeed and Saint-Gobain North America.“ And following our group core values, the launch of ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES also addresses broader needs around labor scarcity, the need to build more homes faster, and in particular the desire for buildings that require less energy and maintenance while being healthier for building occupants and the environment.”
