After tens of thousands of units built in over 30 countries, Western Forms has learned how to optimize its systems for low-rise residential construction.
Even when adjacent housing units have different design features, contractors using the pre-engineered Western system consistently produce 1 unit per day per set of forms with 8 unskilled workers. The system can cut finish time by incorporating textured forms that produce the desired surface shape, such as an accurate brick texture. Prefabricated door and window molds eliminate the time and cost of frames. And workers adapt quickly to the simple, repeated techniques of this familiar building technology.
