The Materials Lab hosted Escobedo Group for a lunch 'n learn presentation on Wednesday, March 4th, from 12:00 - 1:00pm. The Escobedo Group is a multi-faceted, Austin-based general contractor, with advanced capabilities in working with stone, steel, metals and concrete. The founder of Escobedo Group, David Escobedo, and UT lecturer and Escobedo Group associate, Adam Pyrek, introduced one of the company's most recent innovations: the prefabricated DARIO Panelized System.
From Escobedo Group:
"The DARIO Panelized construction process allows us to build fully systems-integrated floor, wall and roof panels in-house with the same quality and precision with which we have always built onsite. Now we simply build in a controlled atmosphere, with our own skilled craftsmen who ultimately erect the structures onsite– as well as provide high level artisan-quality fabrication of architectural elements of stone, steel and millwork. Without compromising the quality and precision for which the Escobedo Group is known, DARIO Panelized allows us to build better, faster, more efficiently, with less material waste and less impact on the environment. The assemblies also utilize the most suitable materials that enhance performance of the enclosure, energy efficiency, and occupant comfort."
