ONE PRECISION ASSEMBLIES: A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE OF SOLUTIONS FOR THE RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION SECTOR IN THE US In May 2023 in the US, SaintGobain launched One Precision Assemblies (OPA), its first-ever prefabricated residential construction solution for walls, floors, ceilings and roofing. In 2022, two pilot projects were launched with fullyconstructedpanelsdevelopedwith Saint-Gobain products, built at a partner plant, shipped to a building site and assembled to form two energy-efficient individual homes in Mystic, Connecticut, and Keene, New Hampshire. These homes currently consume half the energy consumed by a traditional house, resulting in an excellent cost/ performance ratio. Manufacturing lead times are also considerably less: for a fully customized house, in-factory production of the wall panels takes a week, while just one day is needed to assemble them on site, compared to between four and nine months approximately in more conventional building projects, depending on the project’s location, scale and complexity, and on the builder.
