Blue Valley Building has evolved from its roots as a custom home builder to focus on revolutionizing the construction industry with its superior system for building homes using panelized wall systems and insulated concrete forms (ICF).
Our approach reflects our decades of combined experience applying lean management principles in the automotive industry. We’ve developed a sustainable modular panel system for ICF construction that will significantly reduce waste, improve quality, minimize costs, and increase productivity in the home building sector.
