The Grafton Builder Writes:

Trimming Costs with Innovative Building Technology

Gilmore Building Co. is known for using innovative building technologies when designing and building new homes.  The Company's current new home project is using a factory-built panel system to build the home's foundation.  As will be explained below, this system trims homeowner costs. 

Advanced or innovative home building technologies are always emerging.  This reality is good because building codes are always becoming more restrictive i.e., demanding of better performance from building methods and materials.  An example is the Building Code's energy efficiency requirements.  Homeowners also want high efficiency and low maintenance.  Innovative technologies can, when properly applied by engineering-based skilled builders, save building costs and homeowner operating costs.
