Blue Valley Building (BVB) 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 wall forms, wall and floor systems.
Our approach reflects our decades of combined experience applying lean management principles & disciplined research and development in the automotive industry. We’ve developed a sustainable modular panel system for continuous insulated wall construction that will significantly reduce waste, improve quality, minimize costs, and increase productivity in the home building sector.
Prioritizing research, development and innovations on adding value to structures. Incorporating energy generation, storage, control, distribution and management into the dwelling’s structures. Prioritizing material selections to reduce green house gasses throughout the entire value stream, including our manufacturing and construction processes. Products and materials are chosen to deliver healthy and comfortable living.
BVB’s offers panels manufactured from traditional wood or steel panels and our own innovation in panel manufacturing using new materials to construction enabling modular construction significantly light weighting buildings.
