MiTek’s Enabling Technology and Equipment Helped the KB Home ProjeKt Dramatically Reduce Building Cycle Times, While Delivering Precision & Quality

IBS Show Floor - MiTek® Industries is a sponsor and participant in the 2019 BUILDER Concept Home at Inspirada, in Henderson, NV, called KB Home ProjeKt: Where Tomorrow Lives.

During the IBS show, MiTek’s participation will be demonstrated at the KB Home ProjeKt for visitors to the home site. The home tour times are Feb. 19, 20, and 21, from 10AM to 1PM. The address is 3131 Biancavilla Ave., Henderson NV. Transportation to and from the home is free through a Lyft promo code: KBHP2019. (See a virtual tour of KB Home ProjeKt now at this LINK.)

KB Home ProjeKt: Where Tomorrow Lives is a forward-looking concept home that breaks new ground in homebuilding through innovative partnerships, while also demonstrating the viability of a highly accelerated construction pace when moving from “dirt to dry-in.” The off-site construction framing process of this KB Home ProjeKt incorporated 3D-modeled and advanced panelized framing.

About MiTek and the KB Home ProjeKt

MiTek’s SAPPHIRE® suite of 3D structural component design and manufacturing software helped shorten the traditional home framing cycle times, enabling a frictionless collaborative across all design and trade disciplines. These included ENTEKRA’s engineered integration, and component manufacturing by Better Built Truss and Desert Truss, which used MiTek automated truss manufacturing equipment. MiTek’s SAPPHIRE® Build Portal provided a central digital repository to track and maintain version control of documents and plans. MiTek’s Hardy Frame® and USP® Structural Connectors are featured as well in the home, and MiTek’s Wrightsoft Corporation’s Production Home Design Service Group created the optimized HVAC system design to optimize the home’s comfort, efficiency, and indoor air quality. MiTek’s SAPPHIRE structural BIM model of the home was also central to Wrightsoft’s design for the highly efficient system and its layout.

About the KB Home ProjeKt

The KB Home ProjeKt: Where Tomorrow Lives home will be revealed in the Inspirada master-planned community in Henderson, Nevada in January 2019. Visit www.builderonline.com/kbhomeprojekt to stay up-to-date with the KB Home ProjeKt developments.

For this concept home, ENTEKRA coordinated the off-site integration process, and facilitated the panelized design, truss engineering, and construction logistics of the floor, roof, and wall panel components. Truss and panel design and manufacturing were enabled by MiTek’s SAPPHIRE design and process-management software solutions, which also drive MiTek’s automated equipment to create the final structural components.
